Sports are always fun, but life is also a game you can win at. With the right counselor in Kirkland, you can take the game of life into your own hands.

Kirkland is known for the restaurants, galleries, the many different pieces of public art, and it is the original home of the Seattle Seahawks. But, while they may have moved to a new location, Kirkland is still a growing place, and while you may have moved on from the past, you can always do well once again with the help of a counselor.

Counseling is a side by side journey of exploration and imagination.

Hello, and congratulations on taking the first step to getting support. Courage is the first word that comes to mind when I think of my clients. It takes courage to seek help, courage to address uncomfortable emotions and courage to embark on change. The practice I find most helpful as the therapeutic process begins is self-compassion. Many clients struggle with self-criticism, which results in feelings of unworthiness. As we begin working together, self-criticism can increase, so together we develop your compassion for yourself. In my experience of over thirteen ...

I work with adult individuals, couples and families in a collaborative way to address the past and present issues that are impeding their current and future well-being. I believe that it can be difficult to fully process and heal from past trauma or troubling issues alone because we get trapped in our own heads and repeat problematic cycles that perpetuate thoughts and behaviors that hinder growth and healing. I provide a direct and empathic approach which means I will be supportive and kind, but will honestly share feedback in an effort to help you get the most o...

Let's face it: Life is hard. But how we respond to it is what makes the difference. It's how many times we get back up and keep putting one foot in front of the other. We can succumb to circumstances in which bad things have happened to us at the hands of others or because of our own poor choices we have made, or we can choose to rise above them all by facing our fears and boldly moving forward, letting them shape who we are and lead us to new understanding of who we are. I would love to come along side you and journey with you to discover how to be an over-comer....

My name is Josh and I have been interested in counseling and psychology since I was 12 years old. I became more interested in counseling later in life when I visited my first counselor and was helped greatly with my own questions about myself and about my life. I am a believer in counseling, primarily because it has helped me so much, and also because I have seen the way it has helped those around me. Truly, the process of talk therapy is nothing more than spending time with someone who cares and can offer clarity, hope, and unconditional acceptance when we feel l...

Having a hard time selecting a therapist in Kirkland? (Here Is How Our Kirkland Therapists Can Help)

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Kirkland area; especially when you're having a hard time trying to find therapists accepting new clients.

First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue BEFORE trying to find a therapist or psychologist. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy, group therapy, family therapy, or couple’s counseling; just pick the Kirkland therapist that is right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, the types of therapy they're most experienced with, and then finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Kirkland, or elsewhere in the King county or state of Washington.


What is the cost difference between conventional therapy and working with one of our listed therapists above?

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, and in somes instances you might find that the average price of a therapy session in Kirkland, WA ranges from $85-$150.

Some therapists in the state of Washington will work on a sliding scale, meaning they’ll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With our therapists serving both the city of Kirkland and elsewhere throughout the state of Washington, you can expect significantly more affordable options with sessions ranging from $40 to $70 per week (billed monthly).


Did you know our therapists are not limited to in-person visits?

Online therapists, including all those listed above (all of which are in the United States) able to work with people like you in or around Kirkland offer creative forms of communication to help people like you receive the best type of treatment for your needs.

Whether that’s via sms texting with your therapist, video sessions where you see you one another and talk about your problems, live chat or phone sessions, you and your therapist will find the best way to address your mental health challenges.

So if you're dealing with things like relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy, you want to work with one of our experienced cognitive behavioral therapists (specializing in behavioral health), assistance with eating disorders, or support with other common mental health issues (like stress, anxiety, depression, grief, etc)... take a look at our available therapists above and find a therapist that is right for you.


How to know if therapy is right for you?

One of the rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is that they are listening to your feelings. Our friends and loved ones often hear us, but they may have a hard time providing objective guidance in the way a therapist can; which can be extremely valuable due to the fact that many therapists have experience helping others through similar difficult times.

A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state, no matter what you're dealing with (including behavioral health concerns, grief, anxiety, depression or stress). In addition to developing healthier emotions, another benefit of therapy is you have a safe space to discuss problems that you may be hesitant to talk about with people in your everyday life.

Many people have sensitive topics to discuss; possibly an addiction or an issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends and/or partner. A Kirkland therapist can help you confront these kinds of issues and find ways to face them and heal.

With more than 87701 people in the city of Kirkland, WA finding a therapist can be both costly and hard to do. Our goal with the list of therapists shown above is to get you the support you need today.

Other FAQs:

What is the difference between a therapist and a psychologist?

Both a therapist and a psychologist can help with some of the most challenging times in life. Often times, a psychologist will work along side a psychiatrist who is also a doctor in order to have medication prescribed if needed for a patient's care; but this is not always to case. At the end of the day, both mental health care professionals can provide the different types of therapy that someone needs.

So if you're looking for more than just a clinical social worker, it's likely that one of our therapists can be of assistance and help you feel comfortable and confident with online counseling. Our counseling services will connect you with a licensed professional that is ready to work with clients like you to form a helpful therapeutic relationship.

Whether you are here looking for a a child psychologist in Kirkland, couples counseling in Kirkland, family conflict therapy in Kirkland, or a marriage counseor open to working with individuals in you area... BetterHelp can assist you, possibly in new ways that you haven't tried using technology.

Are therapists covered by insurance?

Therapy with a clinical psychologist is often NOT covered by health insurance. While only some health plans in the USA cover counseling in Kirkland, this does not have to make your search for therapists in you area a challenge. The reason is our new ways of using technology like text, video, phone, and live chat options have made it easier for therapists working with individuals like you easier and much more affordable; as described above.

With that in mind, you can feel comfortable to look at the list of available therapists on our platform ready to both help and work with clients like you; all while building a healthy therapeutic relationship designed to assist you.
