Professional statement

Jim Dunn is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Seattle, WA who enjoys working with a wide range of clients, including children, teens, college students, adults, families, and parents. He helps children and their families learn how to overcome challenges and better manage their symptoms. He also works with teens as they prepare for adulthood and deal with the challenges that come with getting older. He has experience in a number of different areas, including anxiety, depression, existential crisis, parenting, and trauma.

Jim takes a trauma-informed approach and is also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). His sessions are client-led, and he does not push his clients to discuss something before they are ready. Jim also incorporates mindfulness practices when appropriate. When working with children, Jim focuses on attachment and teaches both his client and their parents how to develop healthier coping strategies. He takes an individualized approach that takes into account a child’s support system and home life. Many of his young clients are having trouble either at home or at school (or both).

Jim offers a safe, nonjudgmental space where clients feel comfortable sharing their deepest thoughts. Before starting his private practice, Jim worked at a community mental health clinic for five years where he worked with a variety of clients.
