At Alliant Therapy Group we believe in providing affordable care to the community. If you do not have insurance or mental health coverage, if you have a high deductible, or if we are out-of-network, we offer several options so that cost does not have to be a barrier to your wellbeing.
Our interns provide an affordable option for counseling as part of their academic clinical internship experience. Our interns are Master's-level graduate students, and while they are not yet fully licensed in the state of Washington, they offer many strengths and bring their unique life experiences and personal qualities to the therapeutic relationship. Experience in the field is only one of many tools in a therapist's toolkit. Because interns are newer to counseling, they bring fresh energy and perspective to their work, study the most recent developments in psychology research, and practice under the close supervision of a fully licensed mental health counselor to ensure that you are getting what you need from the therapy experience. We are confident that our interns are able to provide quality mental health care with compassion, competence, and a strong sense of ethics, so that you feel understood, respected, and valued on the journey toward reaching your goals.
Session fees are $40/individual and $50/couple or family, per visit. Each visit is 50 minutes long. These discounted sessions are offered by the counselors below. Please read through their biographies and mention your interest in these sessions when contacting us.
(Your rate depends on the counseling service you request. You might also visit our Therapist page for additional staff biographies to help you determine which counselor may be a good fit for you. If you are unsure, we are happy to help you find a good fit based on your needs, so please call us today to set up an appointment.)
I am currently in the last year of my Master's program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling through Regent University. I believe counseling is a collaborative process that should be tailored to your unique needs and strengths in a holistic way. During this season of life, I will work hard to provide you with a safe environment that is filled with acceptance, empathy, genuineness, and compassion. Through an integrative approach, I tend to use various Humanistic theories, but primarily Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is an empirically based approach that utilizes mindfulness and each person's unique values to support decisions based on a greater degree of meaning, authenticity, and overall well being in life. Currently I am interested in working with adults in individual therapy for anxiety, depression, self-worth, life transitions, relationship challenges, and trauma.

Hello. My name is Valerie Woolley and I am presently in my final year of graduate studies in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Antioch University Seattle. I consider counseling to be an opportunity for clients to build a grounding, empathetic, dynamic relationship with a professional who values being authentic and compassionate.
Together, we can integrate counseling into a holistic health plan, in which you define your preferred quality of life while considering social, spiritual, cultural, and individual realms of a lifespan. I am interested in helping clients through ongoing transitions and complications, such as work-life balance, relationships, gender identity, chronic illness, loss and grief, anxiety, and depression.
I think you'll find me to be honest, open-hearted, creative, and humorous. In regards to specific modalities I lean toward existential exploration, attachment theory, and mindfulness integration. When appropriate, I enjoy incorporating body-awareness into sessions through breath, meditation, and movement.

Zack Ehrmann, BA, CDPT
I am working on my Master of Arts in Education for Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Seattle University, and have also worked as a mental health and chemical dependency clinician at a local agency from 2014 through 2017. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor, and utilize a holistic and strengths-based approach to client work, drawing on a number of humanistic and eclectic philosophies. I am experienced in working with individuals whom struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, wellness, phase of life, and substance use issues. I am currently an active member of the Washington State Mental Health Counselors’ Association (WMHCA).
I am a graduate student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Antioch University. I believe everyone has rich and complex stories that are waiting to be heard and shared. As a clinician, my work is guided by the stories my clients bring to our work together in counseling.
Through counseling, there is much healing, growth, and empowerment that can occur. To that end, I am intentional about establishing trust, safety, and genuine care in the therapeutic relationship with my clients. This solid foundation also allows me to provide counseling that is holistic, personalized, and culturally competent to each client. As a developing mental health professional, I am interested in working with individuals experiencing a wide range of concerns-such as grief and loss, depression, anxiety, and with clients who are discerning their racial, sexual, and multicultural identities. I gravitate toward humanistic theories namely Person-Centered therapy, Gestalt, Narrative therapy, and Existential therapy. My counseling style is developmental, integrative, client-focused, and most of all empathic.

Shea Robinson, BA
I am currently in my last year of my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling through Antioch University and have over 10 years of experience working in social services, both as a crisis intervention specialist and clinical case manager. I believe counseling is most effective when approached collaboratively and tailored to each individual's own unique needs and hopes for the future. As such, our work together may draw from a variety of techniques and methods and the exploration of the many facets of your personal experience. As a clinician, I am committed to creating a space in which clients are invited to be their full authentic selves, and approach the counseling process with profound respect for the felt experience of each personal story. I am interested in working with adolescents and adults of all ages who are grappling with a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, loss, relationship issues, and life stressors and transitions.
