Celia joined the Olympia Therapy team in April 2021 as a Professional Associate. She received her Masters Degree in Couples and Family Therapy from Antioch University Seattle in March 2021. She has also completed a year-long certificate program in Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, and Child-Parent Relationship Therapy. Celia currently serves on the Board of the Washington Association for Play Therapy (WAAPT).  

Before pursuing her master's in couples and family therapy, Celia supported the community’s physical health with her role as an Exercise Specialist at a Physical Therapy office. Throughout her life, Celia has volunteered and worked with children, adults, and families in a variety of environments, some of which include: church camps, nursing homes, hospitals, and foster care. Both professional and personal experiences led Celia to pursue a career supporting the emotional and mental health of children and families. Recently, Celia worked with children, adults, and families in a community mental health setting. 

When she is not supporting you, Celia enjoys hiking, rock climbing, camping, watching Grey’s Anatomy, singing along to songs from Disney’s Frozen, seeing her family, and playing with her two cats and one dog.

Kellyn Tucker, MA, LMFTA

Specialties: Children and Families

Monday & Wednesday evenings


Kellyn knew early on that she had a yearning to connect and help people along their healing journey. She has studied different therapies in her education career, with a start in music therapy, which she studied for a short while at Arizona State University. During her time at ASU, she taught one-on-one music lessons to students of all ages and abilities, including some children with special needs. She then switched her major to dietetics and finished her Bachelors of Science in Nutrition Science in 2017 from Kaplan University. 


While working with weight loss clients, she noted how her client’s nutrition choices were greatly influenced by their mental well-being and environmental influences surrounding them. Because of this, she decided to pursue her Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy through Capella University, graduating in 2022. During her masters program, she completed her internship hours at Olympia Therapy, where she is now continuing on as a Professional Associate, gaining hours towards becoming a fully Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Play Therapist.


When she is not supporting clients, she is spending her time playing, crafting, and exploring the outdoors with her two young boys, spending quality time with her husband, playing the piano, and cooking for her family.
