lyn

Lynette
MA, LMHC

I am a client-centered therapist and view therapy as an opportunity to slow down, take a deep breath, and to step into a safe, confidential space away from the busyness of the outside world. My therapeutic approach is compassionate, collaborative, and non-judgmental. I often work from an integrative approach that draws from fluid, abstract frameworks such as psychodynamic, attachment, and existential theory, as well as more concrete, evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy. I am also trained to help clients recognize patterns of unhealthy behavior, irrational thinking, and the invisible blocks that keep them stuck and unable to move forward. I am enthusiastic about empowering adult clients of all ages and backgrounds to live more authentic lives and have more satisfying relationships. I consider the following to be my areas of specialty: multicultural issues, life transitions, aging-related issues, and relationship issues. I welcome the opportunity to listen to your story and support you on your path to a more fulfilling life.

jenna

Jenna
MA, LMFT

My name is Jenna, and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Washington. I’ve been with Alliant Therapy Group since 2015, where I enjoy working with individuals and couples growing in the art of being human. We come to therapy when we want something to change; when something on the inside feels out of tune with life on the outside. I believe that change starts with getting to know yourself—in some ways, maybe for the first time: learning and working with the language your body and emotions use to signal what matters (and what doesn’t) to you, discovering what it is that makes you come uniquely alive, and allowing this self-understanding to help answer the questions your life is asking of you. From here, clarity and courage often emerge for working through the barriers to creating a life of purpose, authenticity, and meaningful relationships.

From the systemic perspective that trustworthy relationships with others help us build healthy relationships with ourselves, and vice versa, I strive to offer a therapeutic relationship that is genuine, respectful, curious, and compassionate. My hope is for you to feel seen, heard, and valued as we make sense of your struggles and celebrate your successes.

As an Existentially oriented counselor, I have faith in every person’s innate capacity to learn to thrive in a difficult and beautiful world. My approach to wellbeing is holistic and includes the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual (however you define that). For practical tools and an empowering, strengths-based approach, I integrate Cognitive-Behavioral and Solution-Focused therapies. With couples, I draw from Emotion-Focused Therapy to help partners understand their relationship dynamics and create more connection, and Gottman methods in building more effective communication skills.

Judyline Corpuz, BA

Judyline
MA, LMHCA

My name is Judyline (Judy-Lynn) and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate. I believe everyone has rich and complex stories that are waiting to be heard and shared. My work is guided by those stories.

Through counseling there is much healing, growth, and empowerment that can occur. I support individuals experiencing a wide range of concerns, which include grief and loss, depression, and anxiety. In addition, I am particularly interested in working alongside clients as they explore their racial, sexual, and multicultural identities. I gravitate toward humanistic theories, namely Person-Centered, Gestalt, Narrative, and Existential therapy. 

I am intentional about establishing trust and safety with my clients, and use a client-focused, empathic approach. I believe this provides a solid therapeutic foundation that is holistic, personalized, and culturally relevant.

Elizabeth
MA, LMHC

As a therapist my mission is to provide a safe environment in which you can rest, discover, heal, and grow. My approach is client-centered, working as your ally and having the privilege of witnessing your life as you change, grow, and live into your goals, becoming ever more yourself. Together with an approach of curiosity and open-mindedness, we will discover what is true for you, how you would like to grow, and become aware of your innate and developing strengths. I find that an integrative approach that is strength-based and incorporates psychotherapy and mindfulness allows for looking deeply into what has been, as well as moving forward by learning new ways of being, bringing the mind, heart, and body into an alliance of holistic health. My desire is to see clients find personal power through gaining new perspectives, practicing choice, and developing tools to help them thrive in their daily life.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I received an MA in School Counseling from Seattle Pacific University and worked for six years with high school students in Seattle. I have continued to expand my education and therapeutic approaches through completing the Certificate Program in Clinical Theory and Practice through Wellspring Family Services and attending therapeutic trainings focused on Attachment Theory, Grief and Loss, Cultural Competence, and Mindfulness techniques. I also enjoy reading and researching therapeutic modalities and practices that I can incorporate in my work with clients for their benefit and greater wellness.

Camille (She/Her)
MA, LMFTA

Hi, my name is Camille. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFTA), and I work with couples and individuals. I look forward to working with you as you venture down the brave path of self-discovery and empowerment. I value client centered therapy, and will gently challenge you, while also being your cheerleader. I come to therapy with a strength-based approach, believing that you have the power within yourself to make change, and that my role is to help you identify and foster your deep knowledge of self. I use a tailored approach to therapy, using techniques from Narrative, Solutions Focused and Existential therapeutic lenses.

I believe that dysfunctional patterns can be broken if they are identified and if effort is made toward disrupting them. I use this approach in my work with couples, taking on an Emotionally Focused lens, and employing techniques from Gottman Couples Therapy.

I believe that therapy takes teamwork and I love helping my clients light the way on their own forged path. I welcome and expect client feedback. If you feel that something is not working for you, we can collaborate to determine a route forward.

I have a wide range of interests when working with clients. I have particular interest in the areas of evolution of identity, grief and loss, dysfunctional interactional patterns in couples, and anxiety, specifically phobias.

julia

Julia
MA, LMHCA

Hello! My name is Julia. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process of healing and change. Whether you have tried it before or this is your first venture into counseling, therapy is a form of self-care, and choosing to see a counselor is an act of courage. 

Implementing a client-centered, trauma-informed approach, I support clients on their mental health journey through empathic understanding, empowerment, and a belief in their ability to evolve and heal. I value cultural humility, a lifelong process that involves acknowledging my limitations as a counselor, suspension of judgment, meeting clients where they are, and respecting diverse experiences and points of view.

My approach to counseling integrates evidence-based techniques, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to support client-centered change.

I recognize that transformation occurs in a holistic space created by a commitment to self-care and the support from positive relationships we build. I believe that nothing is more transformative than the personal and professional relationships that we have with those who mean the most to us, and I bring my passion for your healing journey to Alliant Therapy Group.

Vanessa (She/Her)
MS, LMHCA

Hi, my name is Vanessa. I am a licensed mental health counselor associate (LMHC-A) who works with adult individuals and couples. I graduated from Bastyr University with a master of science in nutrition and a master of arts in counseling psychology. I believe in taking a whole person approach in counseling and through this am inspired by integrative and holistic treatment approaches. My past studies and academic background have allowed me to closely study the interplay between mind, body, and spirit. Through this, I believe in supporting each one of these aspects to allow you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself. As a counselor, I want to meet you where you are in life and work to create an honest, open, and supportive environment in order for us to explore your current concerns, thoughts, feelings, and establish an internal sense of self-acceptance and empowerment.

I have received clinical training in both nutrition and mental health counseling and have worked with adults who struggle with disordered eating, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, grief, loss, and addiction. I am passionate about working with concerns surrounding relationship to food and body which I approach with a Health at Every Size® and Intuitive Living lens.

I have a client-centered approach to counseling and utilize processed based modalities such as humanistic and existential therapy, emotionally focused therapy (EFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness, and trauma-informed care. As every client is unique, I view my work as a counselor to be collaborative in order to discover how your past and present experiences have shaped your behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and emotions. My hope is to support you in finding your own personal values and meaning in life. Once found, we will keep working on ways to allow you to live a life that is harmonious with those values. My goal is for you to not only find self-empowerment, but also enhance compassion and acceptance. I look forward to meeting you and am grateful to be a part of your journey in self-discovery.

bailey

Bailey (She/Her)
MA, LMHCA

Hello, my name is Bailey. I have a Master of Arts in Education (MAEd) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Seattle University. My approach to counseling is relational, which means I believe connection to others is essential for our growth and wellbeing. This also means that I believe we develop strategies of disconnection over our lifetimes to protect ourselves from pain and hurt. Using the therapeutic relationship as a foundation, I help clients explore patterns of disconnection that may be keeping them from experiencing fulfilling and growth-fostering relationships with themselves and others.

I approach the counseling relationship thoughtfully and with genuine care. I strive to create a space where clients feel safe to express their full range of emotions, explore their understanding of who they are, and consider the systems that influence their ability to be their authentic selves. Together, we work toward resilience, empowerment, and growth.

I look forward to working with folks from all walks of life. My particular interests are adjustment and life transition, identity development, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, and exploration of life purpose and meaning.

Megan

Megan
MA, LMHCA

Megan currently only provides services via Telehealth, our secure online video platform.

Hello, my name is Megan! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate. I was drawn to counseling by a passion for being a witness to people’s truth and a support in their journey toward their best self. I approach counseling through a holistic, humanistic, and trauma informed lens, building a strong, safe therapeutic relationship through deep empathy and a nonjudgmental curiosity that will guide us through meaningful healing and growth work.

Counseling is a collaborative experience in which we work together to uncover and understand subconscious barriers to your personal growth and healing and making meaning and change in a supportive and safe environment. You are the expert in your self and your lived experience, and in counseling I meet you where you are and respect and value that expertise. In session we will explore with curiosity together, building hope and insight along your therapeutic journey.

I work with individuals with a variety of presenting concerns. These concerns include trauma and trauma histories, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, emotional regulation, life transitions, and adjustment difficulties.
Because of each person’s uniquity in their self and their concerns, I draw from a variety of theoretical approaches to find what best resonates with you and supports your goals for counseling. These approaches include person-centered, existential, narrative, and cognitive behavioral therapies and polyvagal and attachment theories.

Thank you for the opportunity to share a bit about myself. I look forward learning more about you as well!

Nikki

Nikki
BA

Hello, my name is Nikki and I am currently working on a Master’s in Couple and Family Therapy at Antioch University. It is through my personal therapeutic journey that I have found a passion for helping others along their path. I hold a strong belief in the healing power of relationships; providing a secure space for you to feel safe to explore all aspects of yourself, free from judgement, and with genuine care are my highest priorities. I want to support you exactly where you are at and in the direction that you find gives you meaning, purpose, and joy.

I take a systemic perspective, therefore, I tend toward exploring families-of-origin, social locations, cultural backgrounds, and other systems that have affected your life experience. I believe that gaining insight into the impacts of those systems can be incredibly empowering. Specifically when it comes to family influences, exploration of our early relationships can help us better understand ourselves and how we relate to others in present day. I use attachment theory to help put language to some of the coping mechanisms and adaptive behaviors we form as children that may no longer be serving us. 

I also draw from experiential tenets in that I believe that allowing ourselves to fully express our emotions leads us to what we truly need from both ourselves and others. I find that in couples work, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and The Gottman Method provide a nice framework for exploring our attachment needs and communicating them more effectively with our partners. While I have a more natural inclination toward certain modalities over others, my theoretical approach is determined solely by the needs of each individual (or couple/family) client.

Hi, my name is Lisa. I am currently working towards my Master of Arts in Counseling at City University of Seattle. I have received training in individual and group therapy using a social justice lens. I believe engaging in therapy is an act of bravery and self-love and will collaborate with you to build your desired present and future. I believe each client is unique with a unique story to tell, therefore my techniques will vary depending on the needs of each client. You are the expert on your life, and I am here to support you on your journey.

I use a strength-based and holistic approach, integrating a variety of techniques from mindfulness, narrative-focused, and cognitive-behavioral therapy, among others. I aim to create space in which clients feel seen, heard, and supported in order to help them heal, restore, and gain empowerment within themselves.

Katie

Katie
BA

Hi, my name is Katie and I am a graduate student at Bastyr University working toward my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. My work focuses on addressing concerns around anxiety, depression, self-acceptance, emotional regulation, implementing change, and navigating life transitions. 

I believe that all of our emotions, feelings, and actions serve a purpose, and we are sometimes unable to see their function. My goal is to help clients make sense of their suffering and uncover any barriers that may be stopping them from achieving growth while coming from a place of nonjudgmental acceptance. I take a collaborative, client-centered approach to help individuals reach their goals by cultivating self-efficacy, building confidence, and instilling hope.

I find that therapy is most effective when I am able to adapt to each individual client’s unique concerns based on the context of their lives, and thus my therapeutic style varies from person to person. My approach is rooted in the theories behind Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative Therapy, among others. It is my hope that we can work together to help you gain insights and develop tools to effectively implement change and enhance your self-awareness allowing you to live life to its fullest.

Hello there, my name is Kathryn, and I am currently a graduate student at Touro University Worldwide working towards my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. I believe in continual growth and learning at every life stage both in my work with clients and in myself as a person and developing therapist.

My approach to therapy is systemic, client-centered, trauma-informed, and holistic. This means that I work with you in a way that honors and examines how factors in your life such as your community, unique relationships, intersectional identities, values, overall health factors, and needs all contribute to your lived experience and presenting issues. I approach our work together in a collaborative, respectful, and curious way that values your position as the expert in your own life on your path to healing, growth, and improving your relationships, including the relationship you have with yourself.

In order to work with you in a way that addresses your unique needs and goals in therapy, I may draw from multiple theoretical and therapeutic approaches, including Narrative Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the Gottman Method, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, attachment theory, and others.

I work with individuals, couples, those in polyamorous relationships, and families. I am especially interested in working with sexual and gender minorities, non-traditional family structures, chronic health issues and/or disabilities, and caretakers.

Beginning work in therapy takes courage and by making it even this far you have already demonstrated your strength and ability to overcome. I look forward to meeting you and setting out on our work together in this new phase of your life.

Janet
BA
 

I approach counseling as a unique relationship centered on the client. For whatever reasons and concerns that bring someone to counseling, I fully believe that people experience healing, growth, and change in a trusting relationship. I aim to provide a safe space with unconditional respect and nonjudgmental truthfulness—hallmarks of trusting relationships in which to grow. Holding to the truth that there is always hope, I meet the client where they are to support them in making the changes they desire. My counseling interests and experiences are relationship challenges, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, spiritual maltreatment, and childhood emotional neglect.

I am a counseling intern progressing toward a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the Townsend Institute at Concordia University in Irvine, CA. My training focuses on the whole person, discovering strengths, and nurturing the personality structures that contribute to a flourishing life. I draw from attachment research, neuroscience, and psychodynamic traditions. The Pacific Northwest has been home for most of my life, yet a piece of my childhood heart lingers under Montana’s big, open sky.

Hi, my name is Elli and I am here to help you on your counseling journey. I am a graduate student at City University of Seattle working towards my Master of Arts in Counseling. Sometimes our brains can feel overcrowded by thoughts and emotions and we need an outside eye to help in making sense of the chaos. Throughout our counseling journey I strive to provide a relaxed and open atmosphere for you, as the client, to use as a blank canvas as we begin to map out your thoughts, feelings, and anxieties.

Currently I am focused on learning the skills of CBT, TF-CBT but believe that each client is unique, thus the way in which I approach counseling with each of my clients will be unique. In addition to pursuing my masters in counseling I also hold a BFA in Dance from Western Washington University. My knowledge of and passion for movement will allow us to navigate the everchanging relationship between the mind-body-soul connection working towards a holistic, happy life.

Miles

Miles
BA

I am currently working toward my MA in clinical mental health counseling at Antioch University in Seattle. As a therapist, my primary aim is to be fully present for clients, offering curiosity, careful listening, non-judgment, and authenticity. My approach is also collaborative, meaning I honor my clients’ beliefs, emotions, and experiences as valid and true and see clients as the most authoritative sources for the solutions to the unique challenges they wish to address. In this way, I hope to form a strong therapeutic alliance with clients, which is the foundation for growth and change. 

The theoretical approaches I draw from are present-oriented, experiential, relational, and emotionally focused. The particular theories or interventions depend on the individual client and include Attachment Theory, Existential Theory, Psychodynamic theories, Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Gottman Couples Therapy. In addition, I have practiced mindfulness and meditation and studied Buddhism for many years, which informs my approach to therapy—particularly my emphasis on nonjudgmental awareness of our present-moment experience, detaching from the cognitive distortions that can keep us stuck, and practicing self-compassion.    

I work with individual adults to help them find meaning, connection, clarity, and purpose. I am particularly well suited to working with life transitions (career, marriage, children, aging), grief and loss, and distressed relationships. I look forward to working with you as a witness, co-author, catalyst, and source of support.
