About Emily Wood

As therapists, we are our most valuable tool.  I am trained to sit with clients in a therapeutic way to create change in their lives and promote their mental health.  It is very important for clients to get a sense of their potential therapist, so please feel free to call me if you have questions about who I am and what I provide. 

The most consistent feedback I get from clients and peers is that my ability to connect with people is my most valuable asset.  Clients say that I "get" them and they feel understood.  They can expect me to work hard to understand their situation and attune to their needs.  I am a gentle guide and seek to thoughtfully challenge my clients while helping them feel capable of doing the work of their lives.


Perhaps as a result of my work in social services, I have a keen interest in how we are shaped by our roles, relationships, and experiences and the process of equipping and championing ourselves to make the most of our lives.  A native of the Pacific Northwest, in my free time I enjoy being in nature and engage in ongoing education.

I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Washington (credential number LH60713310).  

Mental Health Counselor

I operate from a person-centered framework and believe in the fundamental healing power of relationship. This fits well with my eclectic approach that borrows from many theories

  • Attachment
  • Psychodynamic
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
  • Trauma Informed Treatment / TF-CBT

I have also completed training and workshops in a number of inter-related areas, specializing in trauma and King Country Recovery Model.

I especially enjoy working with young professionals who may be achievement-oriented, but still feel "stuck" somehow or unsettled in relationships.
