Meet the Counselors at Thrive Counseling Center

Welcome to Thrive Counseling Center and Our Therapist Team.

Research shows time and time again that the strongest predictor of the effectiveness of counseling is a good relationship between you and your therapist. We consistently find this to be true and will support you in finding the therapist that is the right fit for you

We invite you to take a look through our providers and feel into who might be a good fit for you. Sometimes it's a connection with a provider's picture, sometimes it's their background and experience, sometimes you might really prefer to work with a male therapist, or sometimes with a female therapist.

Call For More Information on Our Federal Way Counselors

You can also just trust your intuition and go with who you feel drawn to. Or, if you would like some help in making a decision about which therapist is right for you, give us a call or send us an email. We are available and ready to help you make the decision.

We are extremely proud to have such an amazing team of providers serving Federal Way, Des Moines, Kent, Auburn, and the surrounding communities. Whomever you chose to work with, you will be in good hands.
