Our Mission

Our mission is to help individuals transform, grow, and discover their own strength. The dragonfly is able to release itself from the larva state of impaired functionality and mobility.

We believe that we are all capable of developing into the state of beauty, uniqueness, and maturity where we are able to fly and reproduce with transparency and authenticity with the divinely inspired grace that resides within each one of us.

This grace is found through the power of connection and self discovery that leads us to understanding our own strengths, and worthiness, and love.

Our Team

At Dragonfly Wellness & Education Center we have therapists and educators with a variety of personalities and counseling styles. We serve Stevens county in our Chewelah office and can provide telehealth services for those at a distance.

Sinay Butler


My name is Sinay Butler and the things you might want to know about me are: I have two Masters degrees; one in adult education from Eastern Washington University and the second from Whitworth University, in Marriage and Family Therapy, where I also studied individual mental health counseling. I am fluent in American Sign Language. I am a person of conviction and faith. I believe that we all are on a journey and everyone is in process, which requires an exchange of grace for successful interaction.

The more important things you may want to know about me are related to who I am as a person. I believe that the only person I can change is myself and I work very hard to become a better human. I believe that we are products of our family, just as our parents were and that blaming ourselves and others is counterproductive to growth. My therapy is very client centered. I don’t believe it is my job to tell you what to do, but to help you discover the answer that is within you. In our lives, we have areas of successes and areas of challenges. Sometimes figuring out how to apply the tools we use in our successes in other areas of our lives leads to more success.

I would love to meet you and learn more about you as you can continue your journey of self discovery and change. You can call me at 509-724-0221 or email me from the contact page. I look forward to hearing from you.

Rachel Brozovsky


My name is Rachel Brozovsky and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Associate and a Marriage and Family Therapist, Associate. I have an Associate degree from Spokane Community College and received a Bachelor’s degree in Social Services from Whitworth University. I completed my Master’s degree at Whitworth University in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I worked with individuals experiencing a variety of psychological and emotional issues, including: depression, anxiety, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), MST (Military Sexual Trauma), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), domestic violence, personality disorders, grief/loss, couples/relational issues, adjustment disorder, as well as parenting skills and life management. I am a client centered therapist the believes you have the ability to change your life.

Sometimes change is challenging. I believe that for counseling to be effective, both you and I must be actively involved in developing counseling goals and assessing progress. Efforts to change self-perception, emotions, and behaviors require work both in session and out of session. Some change will occur quickly and easily, but more often change requires slow, deliberate, and repeated efforts.

The goal is to help you gain insight into your problems, develop coping skills and resources, and change yourself so that participating in life’s daily activities generally becomes a more positive experience.
