Alison Davis View Specialties


I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington and I'm certified in the area of Couples Communication, and Lifespan Integration, which is an effective counseling method for healing wounds from the past  ( http://www.lifespanintegration.com ). In addition, I am trained to use EMDR, which is a clinically proven way to help people resolve trauma. I also have extensive experience in the field of addiction and recovery and Codependency.

I received a Bachelors Degree in the field of Social Work from the University of Texas and completed a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. 

My style of counseling is a collaborative one, where the individual needs of each client informs the mode of treatment. The relationship between counselor and client is key to the healing process, and I offer warmth and compassion that promotes a safe atmosphere for exploring life’s difficult and delicate issues.  I help my clients address underlying, or root issues, so they can become free from the pain of the issues they are facing.  This creates an opportunity to move beyond coping and begin living with purpose.

My areas of specialty include:
* Marriage and Relationship Issues
* Addictions (sex addiction, substance abuse, & gambling)
* Co-addictions (healing for partners of addicted individuals)
* Anxiety & Stress
* Self Esteem Issues

•   Communication Barriers
•   Intimacy Issues
