Couples, Individual, & Online Therapy in Seattle, WA
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:
- The Gottman Method
- Solution-focused therapy
- Strengths-based therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Cognitive processing therapy
- Dialectical behavioral therapy
- Motivational interviewing
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
- Art therapy
