Seattle is a city that has given birth to people and companies that have revolutionized the computer and Internet industry. Bill Gates was from Seattle, and Amazon was created there was well. Your mental health is comparable to computers or Internet stores. Sometimes, it boots up fast, processes well, and ships out quickly. Other times, it lags, crashes, and takes forever to ship. 

A counselor can be the technician you need that makes sure your brain is operating as smoothly as possible. Talk to a Seattle-based counselor today and see what they can do for you.

Philosophy and Approach: As a licensed mental health counselor I believe that every person has the potential for positive growth and change. I strive to create a collaborative working relationship with clients, where together we can work to clarify your needs and attain your goals. When appropriate I use assessment tools and questionnaires to gather additional information. Successful treatment will require work in and out of session, so I will often assign practice and then ask a client to review with me in session. My approach is to help people stand aside...

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 will meet you where you are and I will walk with you through the darkness and into the light. Know that you ar...

Having a hard time selecting a therapist?

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Seattle area. First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy or couple’s counseling; just pick what’s right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, and finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Seattle, elsewhere in the King county.

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

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, but the average price of a therapy session in Seattle ranges from $75-$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 Seattle 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 able to work with people like you in or around Seattle 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.

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. A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state. 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, an addiction or issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends or partner. A Seattle therapist can help you confront this issue and find ways to face it and heal. With more than 704,352 people in the city of Seattle, 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.
