Professional statement

Aleen Raybin is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Seattle, Washington who specializes in women’s health, anxiety, depression, trauma, and life transitions. She frequently works with adults in their late 20s and early 30s.

Clients often seek Aleen’s counsel when they’re facing a significant life transition, such as a big move or changes in their relationships. Other times, they are dealing with anxiety that feels relentless – this might be anxiety over constantly feeling busy, not knowing how to balance different, seemingly urgent demands, or struggling to keep up with self-care.

Aleen takes an approach to treatment that is equal parts skills-based, spiritual, and mindful. She often starts treatment with practical therapy types like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) before incorporating more exploratory modalities such as Gestalt Therapy.

Aleen also works with teenagers in the LGBTQIA+ community, helping them navigate stressors such as bullying and issues at school; she also helps educate their parents and family on topical concerns.

Aleen strongly believes that her clients has the power and potential to transform their lives for the better, and she looks forward to accompanying each of them on that journey.

I feel privileged to work with my clients as they move toward their goals and overcome barriers that once felt impossible to face.
