Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person as they are right here and now.

Serving kids, teens, and their families
Family life has never been easy, but in recent times, our world is changing so rapidly that young people and their parents are having a harder time than ever before as they grow, learn, and connect with each other. Family therapy can help by increasing respectful communication, developing cohesion, identifying shared values and goals, clarifying expectations and roles, promoting problem solving, and supporting each family member in their individual growth.
We also provide Individual Therapy for youth aged 4-17 using tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Play and other expressive therapies. We develop a treatment plan tailored to the unique strengths and challenges of the young person to support healthy development, help with adjustment to life changes, teach active coping skills, and improve relationships with adults and peers.
We encourage parental involvement in all treatment of minors. However, the extent of that involvement is determined on a case by case basis in collaboration with the youth aged 13 and older, or in collaboration with the child and the caregiver for youth 12 and younger, in compliance with Washington state law (See RCW 71.34.530)
