Colette Swenson, M.Ed, LMHCA

My name is Colette Swenson and I am a Mental Health Counselor Associate licensed in the state of Washington.  I earned my BS in Psychology from the University of Washington and a Master’s degree as a School Counselor also from UW.  My background includes over 20 years experience as a School Counselor, and a wealth of experience in working with children, teens, and adults. 

 

I bring a client-centered approach to my counseling practice, which means I listen and ask questions with the goal of understanding your situation, challenges, and goals.  With that understanding we will work together to develop a path that will move you forward to your goals.  I work with children 5 and older, as well as teens and adults on a wide range of issues, including relationship challenges, depression, anxiety, communication and adjustment issues,  I assess clients for  depression, anxiety, adjustment challenges, and other issues, and use an array of therapeutic techniques to support healing and progress. 

 

I consider the therapeutic relationship to be a sacred one, built on trust, and it is my honor and privilege to be a part of my client’s journey.
