About Anchor Light
Therapy Collective

Anchor Light Therapy Collective is a multidisciplinary mental health counseling and therapy clinic in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. We’ve been in our comfortable and private suite on Queen Anne Avenue North since 2013 where we’re happy to offer early and late appointments to fit your schedule.

 

We’re passionate about empowering our clients and improving lives. We believe that everyone has the answers and the insight they need inside them—it’s just that sometimes they need some help bringing their truth into focus. It’s an honor to partner with you in this work, and to help bring such positive change to our community.

“When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending.” —Brené Brown
COUPLES, INDIVIDUAL, AND ONLINE THERAPY IN SEATTLE AND WASHINGTON STATE

We work with individuals and couples in the Seattle area, but we also offer secure, HIPAA-compliant online therapy throughout Washington state. Our specialized training includes individual therapy, hypnotherapy, and couples therapy using the Gottman Method. Online therapy is highly regulated; there are a few specific protocols that must be followed, and it is not available for couples seeking relationship counseling. That said, it remains an invaluable tool in many situations. 

 

Regardless of whether you choose distance or in-person therapy sessions, our individualized approach to mental health and wellness takes a wide range of modalities into consideration. The first objective is to create a supportive and compassionate environment—a place where you feel safe releasing difficult emotions and breaking down the barriers between the life you have and the life you want. As soon as it feels comfortable, we’ll explore the different evidence-based approaches that best suit where you’re at and where you’d like to be. We always move at your pace in a way that feels good for you. Some of the techniques we might consider are:

Psychotherapy

 

Coaching

 

The Gottman Method

 

Solution-focused therapy

 

Strengths-based therapy

 

Cognitive behavioral therapy

 

Cognitive processing therapy

 

Dialectical behavioral therapy

 

Motivational interviewing

 

Meditation

IS COUNSELING OR THERAPY RIGHT FOR ME?

Busy lives, uncertain futures, anxiety, stress, and the unique pressures of this modern world can impact you in any number of ways. You may feel overwhelmed and at a loss about how to move forward. You may feel overly tired, and uninterested in the things that usually spark happiness for you. You may struggle with a lack of confidence or feelings of low self-worth. It can be hard to meet commitments at work and at home. You may have come to a point where all of the comparing, striving, and self-analyzing has you feeling burned out and unproductive. 

 

In working together to apply the best approach for you, we can help you overcome these kinds of concerns:

Grief and loss

 

Change of career

 

Lack of work-life balance

 

Lack of productivity

 

Work stress

 

Dysfunctional family and personal relationships

 

Divorce and separation

 

Anxiety

 

Perfectionism

Lack of self-acceptance

 

Lack of confidence
