Therapists Specializing in Domestic Violence in Seattle

Domestic violence involves any type of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse within a relationship or family. Domestic violence can happen to anyone, and it often has a huge impact on the mental and physical health of those who experience it. People who are subjected to, under the threat of, or have witnessed domestic violence may struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma symptoms, and/or substance abuse.

If you or someone you know is at risk of harm, safety is the first priority. Having the support of a trusted therapist during the process of planning how to leave can be of great benefit. Once you are safe, therapy can help you heal from the psychological effects of domestic violence. Though people react in different ways when faced with stressful and potentially dangerous situations, many providers take a trauma-informed approach to therapy.

The therapists in Seattle below can help you work through your experiences, develop coping strategies, and heal. Therapists have been vetted by the Zencare team for their expertise in domestic violence and the provision of clinically rigorous, quality care.

Quite possibly you landed here because you’re in search of therapist who employs a not-so-traditional approach to therapy — one that is steeped in mindfulness, nature, and a whole lot of soul.
I am here to listen to your story with an open heart, to serve you with compassion. I have studied with many teachers and learned many tools and techniques along the way — from traditional psychotherapy to alternative methods like alchemical healing, guided imagery, voice dialogue, mindfulness-based therapy, nature-based soul work, and vision quest.
I blend all of these traditions and techniques together, along with my intuitive and Spirit-led work, to create an individualized and powerful experience for each of my clients. I look forward to working with you!

My training spans many areas of mental health and I have experience with many problems that bring people to therapy. My particular areas of expertise are those most often encountered by 18-35 year olds, including anxiety and stress, depression, sexuality, and confusion about relationships and careers.

As a therapist I know that life can often present you with problems that challenge your ability to successfully cope with certain situations on your own. You may either feel flooded by emotional responses or you may find yourself shutting down, turning off the system which appears to be disrupting your life. The problem with shutting down in an attempt to escape the feelings, is that the result can be isolation which then leads to increased sadness, stressed relationships, and depression. I would like to be able to offer you a safe, protected place to talk about yourself and your struggles so that change can happen through a gentle, accepting process that will allow you to gain knowledge about yourself and allow you to regain your footing through self-acceptance.
