This can be relationships with family, partners, friends, co-workers, or even the relationship we have with ourself. How do we repair these relationships? Compassion, empathy, and understanding for ourselves and others. Sometimes other parts of us that feel anger, fear, or sadness can get in the way of this understanding. Psychotherapy can be a way to move through painful emotions and reconnect to your confidence, courage, and creativity."

"I think of therapy as a way of freeing ourselves from the obstacles which prevent us from moving forward in our lives. Frequently these obstacles present themselves to us in the challenges of the outer world--in problems at work, in difficult relationships, in adapting to life changes, or in the sudden impact of a traumatic event. And sometimes what stands in the way of our freedom and happiness lies within us, as negative thought patterns, conflicting or confusing emotions, and unexpressed feelings--all of which can result in depression, anxiety, chronic illness, low self esteem--burdens we often carry alone."

If you're looking for Experiential Therapy in Washington or for a Washington Experiential Therapy these Therapists provide Experiential Therapy counseling.Experiential therapy is a therapeutic technique that uses expressive tools and activities, such as role-playing or acting, props, arts and crafts, music, animal care, guided imagery, or various forms of recreation to re-enact and re-experience emotional situations from past and recent relationships. The client focuses on the activities and, through the experience, begins to identify emotions associated with success, disappointment, responsibility, and self-esteem. Under the guidance of a trained experiential therapist, the client can begin to release and explore negative feelings of anger, hurt, or shame as they relate to past experiences that may have been blocked or still linger.
