"In depth-oriented psychotherapy, mental health does not mean an absence of difficulties in life. It means, rather, the capacity to continue to develop our potentials and to grow emotionally and spiritually over the course of our lifetime. When this process of growth is blocked due to some kind of life crisis, or call to change, we experience emotional and psychological distress."

"I believe healing happens in and through relationship, which is increasingly backed by current neuroscience. As a result, I place the utmost importance on making sure the client feels safe, seen, heard, and known within the counseling space. Raised by two medical professionals, I am infinitely curious about the mind- body connection. I believe the two cannot be fully separated, as healing is a holistic process that involves the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of personhood. "

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Seattle using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Seattle are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Seattle you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Seattle and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Seattle or family therapy in Seattle.
