My name is Josh and I have been interested in counseling and psychology since I was 12 years old.

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...

Deciding to get another point of view is a big deal. Your situation may involve your goals, your hopes, your relationships, or just a growing feeling that things could be better for you. You may be longing for big changes, or reacting to ones that have already happened. You may be adjusting to new roles—in your career, in partnering, becoming a parent, launching your children, or adapting to changed life circumstances. Others may regard these as ordinary life stages, but right now they don’t seem that way to you. Even successes can be challenging! Either way,...

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

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Lake Forest Park 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 Lake Forest Park 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 Lake Forest Park, 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 Lake Forest Park, 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 Lake Forest Park 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?

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 Lake Forest Park therapist can help you confront these kinds of issues and find ways to face them and heal.
