If you're ready to start a growth journey with a therapist, Puyallup, WA, has plenty of practitioners to choose from. You can seek therapy for almost any reason; you don’t need to have a debilitating or overwhelming mental health concern to start the process. A therapist can help you try to break free from current challenges, develop proactive strategies for personal growth, and address practical problems in your life. 

If you do have a concern related to mental health and well-being, a therapist can likely help put you on a path to peace and happiness. For example, if you’ve been feeling anxious lately, a licensed therapist may offer relaxation strategies and other techniques you can use to keep anxiety at bay. Therapists are often able to help you move forward toward your personal goals and are typically well-qualified to offer support, encouragement, and motivation. They can also help with significant challenges, such as overcoming past traumatic experiences. 

When searching for a therapist, you have several options. You could look for local reviews, ask your primary care provider for a referral, or contact the clinical director of a community mental health center for guidance. It is often helpful to look for practitioners specializing in your area of concern. For example, if you’ve been feeling depressed, you may want to find a therapist who specializes in mood disorders, or if your romantic relationship could benefit from professional guidance, it may be worthwhile to seek out a couples therapist for guidance. 

Many mental health professionals are prepared to refer patients to potentially beneficial additional services, such as occupational or speech therapy. Therapists are highly trained, usually requiring a minimum of six years of education and several thousand hours of supervised clinical practice. They are typically well-prepared to coordinate with those in the medical field or other helping professions.

You may also want to consider online therapy as you search for a therapist. Online therapists typically have the same training and practice using the same evidence-based techniques as traditional therapists, and many offer their services both online and in person. With online therapy, you don’t have to travel to a physical office to attend sessions, making it a potentially more accessible and less burdensome way to access therapy. The therapists listed below, all highly-trained online therapists, may be worth a look as you choose a practitioner.

My pronouns are he/him. My approach to counseling is as a partner to walk with someone towards a place of healing. I utilize a trauma informed, person centered approach to help others realize their potential and work closely with them, on the path of their choosing, to help them achieve their goals. I find that it is vital to the counseling relationship that we honor the unique experiences of all individuals and recognize the strengths that have brought them this far. I have personal experience with addiction and recovery that I believe enhances my ability to connect with others who are struggling. I specialize in working with individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQUIA2S+ community, those who are experiencing issues related to addiction, those who have experienced varying degrees of trauma, and those seeking gender affirming counseling and support. My primary therapeutic approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, Solution Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I understand that treatment is not "one-size fits all" and believe that in order to achieve long lasting change we must develop a plan of care together.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Puyallup?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Puyallup therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Puyallup therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Puyallup therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Puyallup therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

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

Before seeing your Puyallup 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 Puyallup.

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 Puyallup 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 Puyallup 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 Puyallup, 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.

If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. 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.
