Karin Matthews, JD, MA, LMFTA, LMHCA, Marriage & Family Therapist in Seattle
You are a high performer who is stuck & looking for outside help. You want to have a secure & loving relationship. You want to heal from past hurts, connect with your inner compass & shift towards healthier ways of living. In couples counseling, my husband & I work as a team to help couples grow together. As former high tech & legal professionals, we understand how work demands can impact your quality of life. As parents, we get how children are both a joy & a stressor in relationships. As an intercultural couple, we recognize the challenges in bridging different world views.
Strong loving relationships are increasingly correlated with physical & psychological health. We support clients in discovering how they contribute to their relationship dynamic & help them explore new ways connecting with each other. Emotionally Focused Therapy, a proven couples counseling system, is our main approach. We may also offer PACT & sex therapy.
With individuals, I help women manage the demands of high intensity lives, build self-esteem, cultivate self-compassion & move towards living more authentically. I hold space for my clients to get curious about their innermost desires including their sexuality. For more information on therapy & support for women: www.SeattleWomensCounseling.com
