We are a group of psychotherapists in Seattle, each individually licensed by the State of Washington, individually insured, and in sole private practice.
Being licensed with the State of Washington requires a graduate degree, years of experience and supervision, a state-administered test, and ongoing education and training. The specific graduate degree may vary; the counselors on this page have the following degrees: ARNP (Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner), who may also prescribe medication; MA (Master of Arts – usually in Psychology or a related field); MC (Master of Counseling).
We invite you to read each profile to help you choose the person best for you. Choosing a counselor is a very personal decision. In addition to experience and training, counselors are individuals with their own personality and style; often it will be a combination of factors that leads you to choose someone that feels right for you. The profile will give you information on specialties, experience, and insurance in addition to how someone might approach your issues. Meeting the person face-to-face is the best way to know if this will be a good fit. For further guidance, read Guidelines on Finding a Counselor.
The process of psychotherapy depends on your needs. With adults, it may be short-term and solution focused or a longer process of exploring experiences, thoughts and feelings. Such exploration can help you better understand the patterns and beliefs that interfere with your satisfaction in life. During this process we might focus on solutions, examine the root cause of problems, or explore the costs and benefits of painful patterns.
