Professional statement

Camille A. Saunders supports individual and couples/relational clients who struggle with anxiety, chronic pain/illness, relationship issues, self-esteem, and sex. She likes to work with queer, kinky, poly, and witchy clients who want to do deep work in therapy while also acknowledging the capitalist, white-supremacist, systemically problematic context that we all live in.

Camille is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate who graduated with her Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pacific Lutheran University. She runs her own private practice at Camille A. Saunders Therapy Services where she works with individuals and couples virtually doing teletherapy in the state of Washington. Her approach to therapy is collaborative, non-judgmental, and relational. Camille is passionate about working with clients who struggle with voicing their opinion and have people pleasing tendencies. She values taking the time to see how your perspective informs your relationships and how you want to live life.

In her free time, you can find Camille loving on her plants her boyfriend and her cats, hanging out in her greenhouse, hammocking under her walnut tree, or talking to her backyard chickens.


Message to clients

Do you struggle with anxiety, chronic/illness, relationship issues, sex, stress, or self-esteem? Have you been having a hard time finding and connecting with a therapist that feels right for you?

I am committed to working with you to come up with solutions and build the life and relationships that you want. I think the process of therapy works best when we as client and therapist work together to set goals and define desired change. I can help you realign with your values and learn new coping and communication skills that will serve you going forward. I will always encourage you to give me feedback and to let me know if something I recommend isn't working for you.

I know it can be hard to find and connect with a therapist. I am committed to being present, inclusive, and encouraging of you. I value creating a space where you are able to grow and adapt in order to deal with whatever you are struggling with. I really enjoy helping people lead happier, empowered, and sexually fulfilled lives.

Let's work together!
