Max Tsymbalau, MS, LMHC, Counselor in Seattle
Folks I work with describe me as warm and nonjudgmental, yet assertive and highly engaged. Our work will be an active collaboration - while I will continuously strive to deeply understand your inner experience, I will also point out things in your behavior or thinking that you may not be aware of and offer potential explanations of your challenges as well as practical suggestions about achieving your goals. As you gain more understanding and compassion towards the fearful, depressed, angry, or hurting parts of yourself, you will feel increasingly more grounded and empowered to lead the life that you desire.
Even though there has been tremendous diversity among my clients - and I welcome all - I have a special interest in working with gifted people, with professionals overwhelmed by stress, and with folks who feel stuck in patterns originating from old traumas. Members of the LGBT community are welcome.
I am well-versed in a number of therapy approaches, including psychodynamic, internal family systems, and acceptance and commitment modalities. That said, my major focus will be on developing a special kind of relationship with you - one that includes genuine human connection, honesty, caring, and courage. Give me a call!
