Virginia Knox is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the Upper Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle who works with both individuals and couples. She specializes in helping people with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, life transitions, parenting, and overall stress management.
Virginia enjoys working with clients in an engaged and focused manner, and all of Virginia’s clients feel a distinct sense of support from her. Working with people who want to have healthier relationships in all aspects of their lives is a large focus of Virginia’s practice, and she helps people to see that the blocks to having healthy relationships are often rooted in patterns of behavior that they often do not notice or understand.
Virginia’s approach to therapy is guided, in part, by attachment theory and family systems theory. All of us are part of larger systems that we are affected by and that we affect through our actions and reactions. Virginia uses Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) as a way of helping clients understand predictable patterns of behavior that are driven by emotions. She also uses EMDR to help clients who have experienced traumatic events in their lives. Most of Virginia’s clients are highly motivated and ready to see changes in their lives.
Virginia encourages her clients to be curious about why they feel stuck and to actively work toward change. She is passionate about her work and wants her clients to find happiness and feel ready to handle challenges in life. She looks forward to meeting you.
