In therapy, we will find what works best for you and highlight the strengths you already possess. I take the stance that I am the co-pilot working side-by-side with you to promote growth and change. You, as the driver, determine the next course of action, as well as the destination.

I was struggling with my anxiety and depression and I wasn’t sure what to do. After searching all over Seattle I finally came across Seattle Wellness Center. Their staff was warm, welcoming and accommodating to my needs. I could not thank them enough for everything they have done.
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 live happier lives.
The following treatment methods are used by our therapists to assist clients with the adversity they face.
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 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 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, 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, 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.
To start therapy, simply give us a call or fill out our online form and one of our friendly support staff will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
Typically, a therapy session will take about 50min to an hour.
On a basic level, a psychologist typically spend more time on research whereas therapists spend more time on conducting therapy.
This depends on the individual and the issues they need therapy for.
Ultimately, our goal is to get people the help they need and assist them in accomplishing their goals. While some programs stretch out therapy to keep a client, we are goal-oriented and brief, with targeted strategies for getting important life goals accomplished for our clients.
The relationship between patient and therapist is important. Within the first couple of sessions you will get an idea if that therapist is right for you. If you find that your current therapist is not a good fit to suit your needs, our support staff is will help you transition to a new therapist.
At Seattle Wellness Center, we believe that the cost of therapy should not prevent you from getting the help you need. As such, we only charge $100 for individuals and $150 for couples and family therapy per session.
