Julie Matthews, MA, LMHC, Counselor in Seattle
One of the most important factors in finding success in therapy is finding a trusting and warm relationship with your therapist. It's in this relationship that it becomes easier to take risks, ask deep questions and explore. In my sessions, we explore the past and present, your feelings, sensations and intuitions to help bring clarity and healing to your life -- often discovering surprising things along the way. I work to develop goals, but also allow space for whatever happens to show up in the moment, which often is some of the richest stuff to work with.
I also specialize in working with couples to help them be able to really start talking about the pain of feeling stuck, resentful and lonely in order to cultivate a softer and more connected relationship built on skillful, emotionally-based communication. This process is non-blaming, gentle, slow and balanced.
