Ange Guinn, LMHCA
Seattle, WA

As a therapist, I work to support you as you meet the challenges of living in this wild world. Following your lead, I will listen with openness, curiosity, and kindness as you share your struggles and hopes. I will gently offer clinical insight and thoughtful interventions as we discover what is most important to you and move toward a future that aligns with your values. Sessions will vary but might include exploring relationship dynamics, attachment style, mindfulness skills, or listening to your body’s wisdom. Clients have described me as easy to talk to, trustworthy, and direct. I believe emotional health is marked by the capacity to be kind and connected to yourself, engaging people and situations with flexibility while being true to yourself.

Dana Popa, LMHCA

Edmonds, WA

I am a therapist who creates a non-judgmental space where you can find help with your own self-discovery, deal with anxiety, and find the source of your depression.  In our work together it is essential to have open and honest conversations about what’s on your mind, your stories, your fears, your dreams and your questions. I’ll sit with you, I’ll listen to you, and together we’ll try to find creative solutions for life’s challenges.  Clients tell me that I can approach, discuss and hold the difficult aspects of trauma in gentle and caring ways.  I believe that emotional health looks like someone able to live their lives in their own personal authentic way.

Jeanne Thomas, LMHCA
Seattle, WA

 I view therapy as an opportunity for growth and self-discovery. As humans, we have an innate drive toward wellness, and my task is to help facilitate that drive and clear out the obstacles that are keeping you stuck. I provide a safe accepting space for you to bring your whole self in, with all its parts, and be met with attunement and compassion. I walk alongside my clients helping you reach the outcomes you desire while also inviting you to look deeper into living a life of self-awareness, self-compassion, and authentic connection. Clients appreciate my curiosity, my honesty and my empathy. I work with both talk and body-based therapies to help bring healing and wholeness to body, mind and spirit. I believe that emotional health is self-compassion and the ability to recognize our beauty and our worth.

Kim Case Counselor Bellevue

Kim Case, LMHCA

Bellevue, WA

I am working each session to create an environment where you feel seen, heard, and safe. I am listening for the ways your early attachment story is impacting your present habits, relationships, and self-talk. I believe in the power of collaboration to forge new relational patterns; we are in this together as your resilience and my skills meet. My clients appreciate my insight, encouragement, and sense of humor.  I believe emotional health is a process: the work of a lifetime,  where we are less debilitated by the isolating voice of shame and the noisy inner critic, and believe we are worthy of love, thus able to be more curious about and compassionate toward ourselves and others, growing new habits of health and hope.

Areas of Focus: Addiction, Anxiety, Marriage, Premarital, Parenting, Shame, Spirituality, and Trauma

Therapeutic Approaches:  Attachment-based, Interpersonal, Psychodynamic, Relational, Strengths-based, Narrative

Michelle Garrison, LMHCA
Seattle, WA

I strive to understand my clients holistically and create a therapeutic relationship that is built on safety, trust, compassion, collaboration, space, and hope. I pay close attention to the clients’ relationships of their past, how those relationships shaped them, and how those relating patterns are playing out in the present. I believe that therapy is a journey of discovery, an unfolding of the multiplicities of who we are in relationship with ourselves and others, and I believe that we are the experts in the discovery. I believe that every human is unique and fundamentally good, complex, messy, beautiful, and has the potential to harm and heal; we are all worthy of love, respect, repair, and living a life that is blessed for who they/we are. Clients appreciate the space and consistency I offer and tell me I challenge them to keep themselves in mind. I believe emotional health is a journey unique to each individual that gets us back to our humanity in all its fullness, complexity, beauty, and love.

Michelle Jones, LMHCA

Seattle, WA

I am a therapist who strives to collaborate in clarifying what you desire, where you feel stuck, and how you can increasingly reconnect with your resilient, holistic self. Safety, consistency, and client-directed focus are fundamental to our transformative therapeutic work together. In therapy, clients experience me as empathic, interactive, and empowering. I believe emotional health is an intentional, imperfect posture of offering non-judgmental curiosity, compassion, and advocacy for ourselves and others that does not require hiding or exaggerating who we are, but allows all of us room to live into our own unique contribution to the world.

Rebecca McDaniel Counselor Seattle

Rebecca McDaniel, LMHCA

Seattle, WA

By holding an open stance & listening without judgment, I seek to understand each client’s core sense of self.  I highly value authenticity, transparency, creativity, humor, & engaging what is present - both explicitly & implicitly.  One of the richest aspects of the therapeutic alliance is journeying alongside my clients toward emotional health & healing by exploring strengths, resilience, & walking through some of the grittier, more textured parts of life.  I believe that emotional health involves integrating our past & present internal landscapes by aligning & cultivating the mind, heart, spirit, & body, as well as an invitation to be fully present with ourselves & connected within our communities.
