About Me - Anne Auerbach MA, LMFT, LMHC, MHP

I am a Licensed Masters level Marriage and Family therapist in the State of Washington. A clinician specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, and I maintain a private Practice in Kirkland/Redmond area

I have many years experience working holistically with families and children formerly in the field of education. I consider my work a calling and an extension of my years of voluntary service in Cabrini ministry and hospice work. This is a continuation of my own path to offer gentle wisdom and compassion in the world. I am a graduate of Antioch University's clinical psychology program, specializing in child, couple and family therapy. I have experience working in a large Mental Health agency in the Puget Sound region serving families in all socio-economic and cultural realms. I am currently serving as a private practitioner able to work with a broad spectrum of clients at all developmental ages and stages.

Among my areas of expertise are Emotion Focused Therapy for couples, pre-marital counseling, parent support and working with those families and individuals suffering loss and grief, trauma and pet bereavement. I have received advanced training in working with Trauma using EMDR and enjoy helping clients experiencing anxiety, depression and life transitions including OCD. I was born in England, lived in several countries and have traveled extensively around the world. I believe that this offers me a unique perspective and cultural competence which enhances my work. In addition to being a systems trained relationship therapist, I believe in the power of community, giving back and volunteer work. I am a trained volunteer and Disaster Mental Health Provider with the American Red Cross.

I work with my clients in an interactive, solution-focused way. My therapeutic approach is to provide a respectful, non judgemental, listening place with support and practical feedback to help my clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion, mindfulness and understanding, I work with each individual or family to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
