I am so glad you are here.
My life's work is holding space for folx along their journey of remembering. It is an honor and a joy to walk this path. I believe each of us is a Divine Spiritual Being having a humxn experience. When we remember who we are, our system heals itself.
I am a certified Usui Reiki Master and Master Teacher, a subtle energy practitioner trained in Spiritual Response Therapy, Multi-Dimensional Self, and The Art of Sound Healing, an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapist, and an ordained minister with ULC. I am a LMHCA psychotherapist in WA state USA and a Certified Trauma Professional. I have training in EMDR (a trauma processing modality), IFIO (a relational healing model for 2+ people), and Mental Health First Aid for youth and adults.
I earned a Bachelors of Science in Environmental Science from the University of Washington and a Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Bastyr University.
I have humbly explored the world, lived in multiple countries, and have immersed myself in multiple cultures. My lived experience has shown me there are a lot of right ways to do things. When I lead with curiosity, I continue to learn, grow, and deepen my connections.
I take an interdisciplinary approach to healing, integrating my past lived and work experiences, continual studies, and intuition to my process. I look at energetic healing through a scientific lens. I notice where physics and metaphysics arc towards each other -I delight in this space. As a scientist, I was trained to observe, ask questions, test, and verify results. As one who works in the field of energetic healing, I accept I cannot always explain the healing I witness. I am just grateful for it.
I have a trauma informed practice, strive to be antiracist, and am a LGBTQIA2S+ affirming practitioner.
The House of Flora & Fauna offers in-person healing sessions and classes at The University Healing Arts Center in Seattle's University District.

Carie is a gifted and powerful healer and Reiki Master. When I sought Reiki healing with Carie, she was informative and compassionate through each stage of the process. As someone who is newer to alternative means of healing, I was nervous about trying Reiki healing, Carie made the process feel safe and accessible.
Carie’s professional skill set married with natural warmth created an environment where I was able to uncover so much of my inner narrative while in session with her. During the Reiki healing, I felt an undeniable shift in my body. In the days after, I noticed a lightness and new awareness of my being. Carie was an excellent guide, following up days after with recommendations to reap the benefits of the energy work. Carie is someone that deeply cares for people and she does this tactfully. The time spent with Carie is an investment in healing and self-preservation. I would highly recommend Carie McCoy to anyone looking to transform their lives. -J
The work Carie has done with me has helped me through a very trying time. Learning to listen to my body and channel my energy gave me a level of focus and calm that allowed me to make important decisions with a clear head while facing things head-on. The path we've illumated together is one that I believe has been known to me all along, but was obfuscated by life. I plan to actively apply the tools and practices to my present life. Rather than interpreting dreams, what if we expended more effort interpreting our lives - our intentions? -A
Dear Carie. Thank you for introducing me to Reiki and its healing and calming properties. Your love and concern for your patients shines through the treatments to help us heal. -J
I would highly recommend a Reiki session with Carie McCoy. This was my first session with Reiki and Carie not only made me feel very comfortable but she was very well informed on the subject, why she was doing it, and the intentional questions to ask to dig deeper for the session. -A
Professional Endorsement -
Carie is a beacon of compassion and understanding in the realm of therapeutic care. With a grounding in environmental science and counseling psychology, she brings a tender yet robust approach to trauma-focused therapies. Her personal journey and spiritual awareness infuse a deep empathy and wisdom into her work. Her steadfast commitment to inclusivity, cultural humility, and the affirmation of the LGBTQ+ community, beautifully demonstrates her genuine respect and care for all individuals. As a skilled therapist, Reiki Master, and lifelong learner, Carie's dedication to holistic healing is as inspiring as it is comforting. I sincerely endorse Carie as a heart-warming source of support on anyone's wellness journey. - Zakia Ovington LMHCA Therapist
