Donna Varnau, MA, LMHC

Hi, I’m Donna Varnau…I offer body-centered psychotherapy and spiritual accompaniment to individuals and couples in Edmonds, Washington. I also facilitate classes in Embodied Presence Focusing, embodied meditation, breathwork and labyrinth walking.

For over 40 years, I’ve been studying transformational therapies and contemplative practices. Learning how to connect with my body’s wisdom has been profoundly life-changing. Now when I feel a knot in my belly or a streaming warmth in my chest, I eagerly turn towards the sensation, knowing there is buried treasure in my body’s communication. I think of myself as being on a journey where each moment is an opportunity to engage with life and to be as fully present and open-hearted as possible. I love helping others discover how to transform their personal struggles into an opportunity for connection and joy.
