Professional statement

Jason Peruchini is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Bellevue, WA who works with adult individuals and couples. He specializes in relationships, anxiety, depression, existential crises, and identity development. He particularly enjoys helping individuals find meaningful ways of working through problems with mood and working with couples struggling to maintain closeness in the midst of conflict.

When working with individuals, Jason utilizes cost-effective and time-efficient interventions to help manage symptoms and get people more engaged in their lives. He holds special interest in helping people develop greater awareness of what is important to them through self-examination of their beliefs and values and become better prepared to make decisions that support greater wellness. He frequently utilizes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Existential Therapy.

When working with couples, Jason first spends time doing a comprehensive assessment before moving into discussing a couple’s strengths. He then works to help clients improve intimacy, rebuild trust, and strengthen their ability to work through relationship stressors together. He utilizes the Gottman Method to provide information on what helps relationships thrive when working with premarital couples, as well as couples who have been together for years.

Jason is passionate about the work he does and helps his clients meet their goals and leave feeling empowered to take control of their lives. He looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

This is a place for you to freely explore what is keeping you stuck and find new ways of engaging in the world. I am dedicated to helping you find a more centered approach to identifying a sense of purpose and regaining control over your life. If you have specific goals in mind we’ll lay those out, and if you don’t we’ll work on identifying what those might be. My approach is highly accessible and easy to follow, with tangible skills that you can put to use immediately to maintain a clear vision of what you’re working toward. Knowing how to use these tools can help you avoid common pitfalls and create meaningful change.
My priority is to provide up-to-date and empirically-informed information on effective approaches for improving relationships and mental health. I emphasize a compassionate atmosphere while encouraging you to take responsibility for making needed changes in your life. I want everyone who needs help to feel accepted and supported in ways that are important to them, and we’re going to work at your own pace to reduce the uncertainty in your life and move you toward growth.
