LISA COHEN, MSW, LSWAIC
I consider counseling a collaborative effort, where you are the expert on you, and I am your ally. I create a safe environment for you to investigate the sources of your discomfort, gain awareness of how they affect your life, and help you develop healthy coping skills.
I work with teens, adults, and older adults who are experiencing a wide range of challenges, such as depression, anxiety, bullying, relationship issues, major life transitions, life-limiting illnesses, care-giving challenges, and grief and loss.
My approach to counseling is informed by Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapy, and Psychodynamic Theory.
In addition to supporting clients at Seattle Family Support, I lead bullying prevention presentations and workshops using my short documentary, Confessions of a Social Bully.
I am an Associate Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LSWAIC), and a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the Washington State Society for Clinical Social Work (WSSCSW). I hold a BA in Fine Arts History from Tufts University and an MSW from the University of Washington. To ensure my best service to you, I consult regularly with my colleagues at Seattle Family Support, LLC.
