40 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Washington State and have worked in community mental health for 53 years, 43 of which I have done direct clinical work with people. My experience includes working with individuals with a wide variety of conditions and include, among others, depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, grief and loss identity issues, relationships concerns, and major psychiatric disorders. I love seeing people change, grow, and learn to help in healing themselves over time. I believe in the dignity of each person and strive to treat everyone with respect and unconditional acceptance. My philosophy is that each person seeking help is an expert on their own condition and my role as therapist is to help elicit and guide them toward their individual goals. While I consider myself a strengths-based and client-centered therapist, as well as incorporating other treatment modalities, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, among others, I believe that a strong, supportive, trusting professional relationship is the main factor in helping people achieve positive change. I believe that good mental and emotional health is crucial for all of us and I aim to honor each and every person I work with in providing them with compassion and empathetic care, while assisting them in their healing process. I also think that when people practice and work on their issues as well as attend and participate in their therapy sessions consistently, they enhance their ability to reach their goals.

My name is Dave Wolthausen, I am 54 years old, and have 26 years old counseling experience. I have extensive Alcohol and Drug related counseling experience, and have mainly focused on Mental Health counseling over the last 10 years. My approach to therapy, is client Centered, with unconditional positive regard for my clients. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, which includes Mindfulness, Emotional regulation, Distress Tolerance, and Interpersonal Effectiveness skills. I believe therapy to be a process, not a one time event. It is important that there is a good match between therapist and client, so the client can get the most out of their therapy. Goal setting and bonding happen in the first couple of sessions. I know when therapy begins, it works best when the client and therapist spend some time together, building rapport. Rapport is very important in therapeutic relationship, and it's that feeling being connected, tends to lend itself to honesty, truth, and mutual respect. Goal setting happens in the first couple of sessions. When the client is able to set some small goals, they tend to make the best progress, and are open to new ideas, and new coping skills. When the Client applies those new skills to their lives, change will occur. I will look forward to helping any and all new clients I am working with, and with devote my knowledge and skills to help them better their lives, in whatever way they see fit. I often use metaphors to help clients understand the messages I am trying to get across. Metaphorically speaking, in the therapeutic process, the Client is the driver, I myself, am the navigator, I help the client navigate their life, in order to reach their desired destination. I hope to be working with you soon!

12 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Marriage Couples and Family Counseling, with an emphasis in Crisis and Trauma Counseling. My experience ranges with many different age groups, an I have worked with a diverse client base over the past 12 years. I started off working with Survivors of Sexual Trauma, Domestic Violence, and Human Trafficking. I have worked with children, adolescents, Teens, young adults, adults and the Elderly, providing Individual Therapy, Family Therapy and Couples Therapy, with extensive experience in Group Therapy for adolescents and adults. As well as individual and group therapy for adolescents with substance abuse/addictions. I am currently adding in a focus of Perinatal Mental Health. As I have continued in this field, I have educated myself as much as possible to be able to work with different cultures, races and minorities in order to better serve more populations of individuals who may not have been able to receive the help and the support they need. My Theoretical Foundation is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, however, I integrate other Theories and interventions in order to meet the individual needs of clients. These include Narrative Therapy, Family Systems Theory, Social Learning Theory and Gottman's Sound Relationship House Theory. I am trained in TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My approach is Client Centered, with my focus being on the Client and the Client's needs. I work with the Client to identify goals, and work together with the the client to achieve these goals. As a Therapist, I listen, I help identify challenges, process feelings, and help problem solve and then Client takes action to create change. This is not easy, and trusting this process can be difficult, and I never ask my clients to do anything that I would do myself. I am a trauma survivor and because of my experience, I chose to be therapist in order to help others, because it can be difficult to understand the feelings that accompany trauma unless you have lived through a traumatic event yourself. My hope is to create a safe space where Clients can seek help, feel listened to, feel respected, and hopefully find answers and learn new things to help them cope with the challenges that they have been facing. I am flexible throughout the day with my work schedule which can change from day to day. I do not work on the weekends, and will not be able to answer any messages until Monday. Please let me know what works with your schedule and I will do my best to accommodate you. In some cases I may be able to book sessions the same week of enrollment. Not always and appointments may be a week out. I do have set times in the evenings and weekends for appointments that are consistent. I check my messages multiple times throughout the day, and will respond as quickly as my schedule allows. At times I am very busy and cannot answer right away. I will answer as soon as I can, generally within 24-48 hours. Please know that when I respond, it does not mean I am available for a back and forth chat in the portal. I am responding as quickly as I can between sessions and I am not able to answer each message immediately. If you have an emergency please reach out to your local services for immediate assistance. As I am not able to respond to emergencies or immediate needs. I want to make sure you have the help you need right away.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Lake Stevens counselor?

Before seeing your Lake Stevens therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Lake Stevens.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Lake Stevens licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Lake Stevens counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Lake Stevens, Washington can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
