Depression and anxiety are addressed through insight oriented, CBT , relaxation and mindfulness techniques.
Hello and welcome. As a therapist for over 25 years, my goal is to create a safe environment for individuals, couples, children and families. This enables us to delve into important emotional, practical and relational concerns. Learning emotional regulation, coping and problem solving skills are often an important focus. Together we explore present circumstances and ways the past may have created obstacles to moving forward. In therapy we try to understand your personal challenges and use your strengths to work toward creating a life that is meaningful and fulfilling for you and your family.

I also draw on cognitive behavioral and problem solving approaches.
For 20+ years I have been providing individual psychotherapy. You might be thinking about therapy because you have a sense that something is wrong or something hurts. Sometimes all you know is you have not felt happy for a long time. Perhaps you are experiencing confusion about a relationship or are having anxiety or depression. You have Bipolar Disorder or ADHD and want help beyond medications. Perhaps you are going through a transition such as divorce. You may find yourself up against the "same old problems" at work or home. You may be trying to manage trauma. I can help.

I tend to be more pragmatic, excelling in the "Now What?" stage. I am solution-focused and action-oriented providing applicable skills and cognitive understanding of "why do I behave the way I do?!". Yet I have been successful with even the resistant clientele by providing patience for their trust development, a judgment free arena, and pacing with the clients' personal momentum. I have already worked in two different private practices since my graduation from Seattle Pacific University back in 2006, right here in Edmonds, Washington. I have gleaned enough experience and confidence to provide you a mental health service to trust.

I take an integrative client-centered approach utilizing therapies such as cognitive behavior, dialectal behavior, and shame-resilience therapies.
Anyone is capable of change, but sometimes we can't do it alone. We often need help to fully explore the factors contributing to our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that create barriers to change. I believe that empathy and compassion are essential to the healing process, and my goal is to always develop a collaborative relationship through nourishing and inspiring discussions regarding the path of growth. I have found more and more that the connection between therapist and client is key in the journey of healing and recovery, and I will provide a comforting and safe space for you to explore difficult times in your life.

I draw from a cognitive behavioral approach utilizing mindfulness and acceptance skills to address symptom management and treatment goals.
My name is Megan Dillon and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been a practicing clinical social worker for 15 years supporting clients in jails, courtrooms, hospitals, primary care clinics and emergency rooms. The breadth of my practice has shown me that people want to experience peace, feel self-worth, and have meaningful connections. These desires are not unique but are the bricks that pave the pathway to healing and connecting with our best selves. Navigating the healing journey to true self-discovery is unique to each person. Thus, there is no one size fits all method of counseling.

Life's stressors can be overwhelming. Therapy shows us new ways of being and engaging through practicing adaptive skills and mindfulness. I help my clients uncover connections between past experiences that shape their current ways of coping. This leads to the ability to recognize inner strengths, identify and embrace discomfort, and cultivate self-compassion to find peace and true connection. With empathetic listening in a safe environment, I strive to be my client’s ally. I use cognitive and somatic modalities to connect mind and body and tailor my approach to your needs, even using humor when appropriate!

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
