Barb Witkow

Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

(425) 442-0324

I work with individuals and couples who struggle with depression, anxiety, transitions, childhood trauma, relationship difficulties, grief & loss, divorce, and mid-life crisis. My work is based in depth psychology (Jung) exploring the unconscious and spiritual motivations that direct our life choices without our conscious knowing. Dreams, images, symbols and stories (belief systems) all provide insight into our unconscious and help us learn more about who we really are. Learning basic psychological concepts helps to inform clients about their own psyche and helps you understand and appreciate your unique issues. I have trained in both Somatic Transformation and Lifespan Integration, which works with the body and it's neural pathways to the brain to heal trauma and rebuild/strengthen your sense of self. This stronger Self can ease anxiety, stress, process childhood traumas, and calm the nervous system so that deeper emotional work can be effective.

Life transitions can create new identity struggles. When life turns out "different than expected" it may be the result of a divorce, job loss, relationship meltdown, or family disappointments. It's hard to know how to move through the flood of emotions that may emerge with the chaos. I work with clients to uncover old, outmoded belief systems that no longer work, and identify their authentic self that may lay hidden beneath these beliefs.
