Counseling Services for Adults in North Scottsdale

Kawena Seagle, LPC

My name is Kawena, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Scottsdale, Arizona, and I am passionate about helping people find relief from their suffering.


I am licensed by the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health and received my Master's degree from Capella University. I completed a one year post-graduate residency in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I specialize in helping people heal from trauma and I am currently pursuing certifications in EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, and Brainspotting. I am dedicated to professional development in order to provide the best possible care to my clients. Therefore, I consistently attend trainings in order to stay up to date on the latest treatments available for trauma and anxiety. 


I began my career in community mental health, where I provided individual and group therapy. Before starting my private practice full time I most recently worked as the trauma therapist for the Claudia Black Center at The Meadows, a world-renowned treatment center for trauma and addiction.


The relationship between therapist and client is of paramount importance, which is why I focus on helping you feel safe and comfortable from our very first interaction. My goal is to help you find relief from your past traumas and emotional pain. I want to help you find your way back to yourself, to live the life you have imagined. Taking the first step is hard, know that I am here to assist you in your journey. 


In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two dogs, traveling, spending time outdoors, reading both fiction and nonfiction, and tending to my houseplants. I am originally from Portland, Oregon but have been calling Arizona my home for the past 10 years. I think it's important to  practice what I teach my clients in therapy; applying the different skills and strategies to live my best, most balanced life and making progress everyday.
