EFT Therapist Nicole Barrett
 

My goal is to help people overcome and/or work through trauma, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, grief reactions, relationship issues and medical issues so that they come to a place of self-acceptance, move forward in their lives, live their lives to the fullest potential and have healthy, positive relationships as well as healthy and positive communication patterns in their relationships. I provide couples therapy with an emphasis on attachment and EFT techniques, and I use Rogerian, Existential, Jungian, and dialectical ideas in her therapy. I also use a variety of therapeutic approaches including CBT treatment for depression and anxiety, EMDR for trauma, anxiety, mood disorders, and performance enhancement, art and play therapy, and grief therapy.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Washington. I have worked with a variety of different populations including infants, children, teens, adults, couples, families, veterans, cancer patients and survivors, and geriatric populations. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including hospitals, schools, homes, clinics, and therapeutic daycares.

My caseload is frequently full. Please call or email for availability.

I use Emotion Focused Therapy, developed by Sue Johnson Ph.D., because it helps clients surface and express the more tender feelings that couples frequently have difficulty saying to each other. The emphasis in this method is on creating an atmosphere of emotional safety in the sessions in order to create secure emotional bonds. The approach assists couples in identify and changing repetitive negative patterns and in having difficult conversations without them spiraling into conflict and more hurt.

I see ONLY couples and I always start with and continue with both of you together. All sessions are 90 minutes long.

Special Populations: Couples dealing with affairs, couples wishing to integrate their faith perspectives (no matter what they are) into the therapy, and LGBTQ clients are welcome.

I believe in the power of couples therapy, and using the EFT model in particular. I understand how painful it can be to experience ongoing conflict or distance in our most important relationships. Sometimes we need a new way of looking at things—within us and between ourselves and our partner—to understand what's going on. With this new understanding, we can start to make the changes that will lead to a closer, more connected relationship.

Oftentimes, couples wait a long time before seeking help. It can be scary not knowing what to expect, and wondering if it will really help. By this time, they have experienced a lot of pain, and have established negative ways of interacting as a way to cope with the stress.

Don't wait! Help is available—just take the first step. Call or email me today and we can talk about how I can help.

Years ago I read Hold Me Tight, and it changed the way I look at love, attachment, and relationships. It ignited in me a curiosity and passion for learning more about attachment and helping others understand it better as well. I love helping couples work though disconnection and difficulty and be able to find and explore their relationship in different and better ways.

EFT Therapist Bob Matthews

I work together with my wife, Karin Matthews, as a co-therapy team to help couples bring more connection and life to their relationships.

Karin and I are two very different people: female/male, extrovert/introvert, expressive/reserved, with different careers and cultural backgrounds. Working together as a team allows us to offer you the benefit of our combined backgrounds, personalities, and perspectives. We find that our own diversity meshes well with the diversity within the couples that we see and helps us make sense of what both partners of a couple are experiencing.

If you’re having a hard time with conflict, or are feeling more distant and disconnected than you’d like, we can work with you to help you understand how you’ve come to be stuck where you are and to find new ways to navigate your differences with compassion and respect for yourselves and each other.

According to Sue Johnson, strong loving relationships are increasingly correlated with individual physical and psychological health. I support clients in discovering how they contribute to their relationship dynamic. Once they understand how they cocreate their dance, I help them explore new ways of managing their emotions in connection with each other.

My husband and I work as a team to help couples grow together. As former high-tech and legal professionals, we understand how work demands can affect relationships. As parents, we get how children are a source of both joy and stress. As an intercultural couple, we recognize the challenges in bridging different world views.

Counseling can help you get unstuck, set goals, reduce anxiety and depression, take action to feel better, and help you have more control of your life. With a compassionate and supportive approach, I help people find real solutions to important issues in life, work, and relationships. I help people identify negative emotions and limiting beliefs and replace them with healthy coping skills and positive strategies to change their lives.

Through integrating current research in neurobiology and attachment, I help couples acknowledge, respect, and understand each other better. I help couples break negative patterns that undermine their relationships and find real tools for improving their communication and connection. Education and understanding of each partner's emotional regulation is an important part of the process. Conflict is a normal part of couple communication. Every couple has both a positive and negative communication cycle. Conflict intimacy is learned and an important part of growing together. When couples understand how their emotions, needs, and behaviors affect each other in the communication cycle, they learn how to maintain secure attachment and foster positive relationships.

Every person, couple, and family struggles from time to time. Sometimes it is hard to get through these rough patches alone. Having a compassionate and supportive individual attending to your concerns provides a safe environment to create positive change. As a marriage and family therapist who uses emotionally focused therapy, I am curious about interactions that are keeping you stuck in the uncomfortable and enthusiastic about conversations that begin to create understanding and new patterns of connection.

I focus on many aspects of being human including relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, life events, transitions and specialize in sexual health and intimacy.

I also utilize narrative therapy, trauma-focused therapy, tantric and mindfulness practices, and motivational interviewing. I am a Certified Integrated Intimacy Professional (CIIP).

Advanced EFT Therapist Susan Raab-Cohen
 

Since 1984, I have been a licensed psychologist practicing in the Pike Place Market area. I see individuals and couples for depression, anxiety, life transitions, and interpersonal problems.

My career changed about four years ago when I first heard Sue Johnson speak. She described the yearning that all people have to feel safely attached, to feel secure in the arms of the person they love. She described EFT and showed videos of the work. Her lecture changed my career. I have taken both levels of training and hope to become certified as an EFT therapist.

I have been challenged, excited and inspired by the EFT philosophy, practice and approach. It’s neither simplistic nor easy. But it is tender, nonjudgmental, and optimistic. When EFT works, important moments happen…and those moments can lead to lasting change.

I am a bilingual (Spanish-English) psychotherapist who helps couples and individuals improve their communication and develop their potential, to grow as personally and in relationships. Through EFT I have found the framework to enable my clients to see where their relationship is trapped without blaming one person. We focus on how 'my behavior influences how you react, which at the same time influences how I respond to your response.'

I can help you adjust to major life changes (acculturation process, medical illness, separation, empty nest, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and more) and strengthen your ability to cope with adversity and regain peace. I am interested in the psychological, biological, social, and spiritual well-being of the person.

I am originally from Chile, where I studied and provided therapy for 4 years. I earned my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy and a certificate in medical family therapy at Seattle Pacific University.
