Treatments Offered

Our therapists utilize an array of modalities that have a proven track record of success. We offer therapy sessions that can be conducted in-person for a more face-to-face experience; or online for the client's convenience.

Seattle Wellness Center Therapists are equipped with every resource they need to conduct successful therapy sessions to ensure that the client is meeting their goals.

Our mental health experts incorporate therapeutic methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy to teach our clients proper skills to eventually leave therapy and lead happier lives.

The following treatment methods are used by our therapists to assist clients with the adversity they face. 

Solution-Focused Therapy

Solution-Focused Therapy is future-focused and goal-directed. This treatment puts a focus on solutions rather than the problem. Practitioners will propose solutions based on how that solution will make their client’s life better.

Emotion-Focused Therapy

Emotion-Focused Therapy or EFT is a therapeutic approach based on the idea that emotions are the key to one's identity. This suggests that emotions are the guide for people to make decisions. Ultimately, this treatment method allows people to become better at using information from adaptive emotions.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a treatment method used to change thinking patterns to create healthier habits and unhelpful behavior. Therapists will collaborate with their clients to develop an understanding of the problems they face then create a treatment strategy.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy, which tries to identify negative thinking patterns and pushes for positive behavioral changes. DBT is utilized to treat suicidal and other self-destructive behaviors teaching patients coping skills and how to change unhealthy habits.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT, is a type of psychotherapy that encompasses cognitive therapy, meditation, and staying in the present with a non-judgmental attitude—using mindfulness meditation practice to consciously pay attention to their thoughts and feelings without judgment.

Therapists at Seattle Wellness Center use their knowledge, training, and experience to create personalized treatment plans for each client. While clients follow their treatment plan, our therapists will act as a guide to help them along the way. Ultimately, when a client starts therapy with their therapist, they will collaborate to discover the treatment method that works best for them.
