Counselors by Location

Lisa WhitsittMA, LMHC, CP  
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
(206) 226-0999
2207 NE 65th, Suite #200, Seattle, WA 98115-7097
Location: Ravenna neighborhood above Tree of Life Bookstore.
General Practice Area: Help and support for problems with partners and family members. Learn to make use of conflicting emotions to create more satisfying relationships. Working with people who suffer from self-defeating patterns developed in response to wounding relationships and learned self-cruelty. Whether we use talk, movement or art, my role is to create a safe space for you to explore and express your feelings. Anything of concern to you is appropriate for exploration. Although I may offer suggestions and give feedback, I believe ultimately that you are the expert about your life. Together we can heal and awaken the process for transformation, self-acceptance and create more possibilities for joy. Whether you choose to work individually, as a couple, or as part of an ongoing therapy group, I believe that you can get to be as powerful as you want to be. I have a special interest in working with twins, parents of gay sons or lesbian daughters, women or men in mid-life transitions and artists who feel they have lost touch with their own creativity. Your happiness matters.

General Practice Area: I work with adults, couples, groups and teens. I focus on issues of sexual abuse, sex addiction, relationships issues, eating disorders, and codependency, among others.

Certified Counselor
(206) 953-2200
2113 NE 65th Street, Seattle, WA 98115-6935
Location: Ravenna neighborhood
General Practice Area: I work with individuals, couples, families and offer counseling and guidance in adjusting to life situations, developing new skills, making desired changes, increasing sensitivity and awareness of self and others, and for the development of our human potential. I believe that good counseling respects the fundamental human values of self-expression, self-possession, dignity, and integrity. Each person is unique and there is no "one-size-fits-all" in counseling. My approach is largely person-centered and strengths-based, and may also be insight-oriented and include skills for managing/ transforming inner and outer conflict. I enjoy helping people become more aware of their individual potential and personal power. Some goals of counseling may include specific behavioral changes, symptom relief, personal growth, and/or the enhancement of well-being. My personal experience and professional study have had a strong focus in depth psychology, and the work I do draws from the theories of C.G. Jung along with others in the field of depth psychology. My work is also informed by developmental psychology, humanistic psychology, family systems theory, and Buddhism/mindfulness, with a strong emphasis on compassion and understanding.

(206) 284-2411
Maple Leaf Professional Center, 7812 Lake City Way NE, Seattle, WA 98115
Niche Specialty©: Body-Oriented Psychotherapy. By combining psychotherapy and integrating the body-mind connection, clients gain deeper insight from the subconscious of the body that brings about change on all levels. Clients gain deeper awareness and insight for successful behavior change in more ease, grace, and in half the time then talk therapy alone.
General Practice Area: Reiki Master. I work well with clients who are seeking a holistic approach to address emotional, mental, and spiritual/energetic needs. The body-mind connection is integrated into individual sessions facilitated to your specific issue or life situation. Through counseling and/or Reiki, I work to assist you in finding or re-learning to trust your inner voice to help you more effectively deal with past trauma, or challenging family or social/work situations. I am highly intuitive, assisting you to clear what is blocking you energetically on emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual levels. I will help you to become aware of irrational thoughts or mistaken beliefs in order to stay centered within difficult situations, increase your awareness of the dynamics of family/social/work relationships, and guide you toward making your own empowered decisions. As you tap into your inner wisdom and innate abilities, you will begin to create the kind of life you really want.
