Gila Fein View Specialties

Credentials and Approach to Therapy:
I am a  Licensed Mental Health Counselor and received a Masters Degree in Applied Behavioral Science from Bastyr University.
I work with adult individuals, couples, children and families. 

My therapeutic orientation is based on a psychodynamic and family systems approach. I am a relationship oriented counselor with a focus on fostering healthy relationships with both the self and others. I help clients identify and understand relationship and behavioral patterns, and move toward an alignment with their goals, personal integrity and internal knowing.
A foundational  principal of my work is the belief that with increased self awareness we are better able to navigate the challenges of our lives. As our self appreciation increases, we are freed up to interact in the world with greater peace, confidence, integrity and joy.
Benefits of Therapy:
  • A greater sense of connection in relationships
  • Increased confidence and self esteem
  • Increased ability to make decisions based on the present situation rather than feeling dominated by past (often negative) experiences. 
  • Increased understanding of current and past experiences and how they affect choices, relationships and patterns of behavior. 

Child Therapy:
In my work with children, I support children's creative expression in play therapy, familial work in emotional and relationship issues, and creative arts therapy. Therapy with children includes exploration and integration of feelings through use of images in the sand tray, which is reinforced by other methods of expression and discussion. Parental Consultation is available monthly, and more often if requested. 
Issues Addressed In Child Therapy:
  • Grief and Loss
  • Behavioral Problems
  • Learning Differences
  • Trauma and Attachment
  • Divorce
  • Absent Parent
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Blended Families 

Couples Therapy 
My goal in couples therapy is to provide a safe and comfortable environment where you can explore the complexities of  your relationship issues and/or a particular troubling issue and find some relief. I provide tools to help couples gain communications skills and a better understanding of themselves and their partners.
