Erika Falit-Baiamonte

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW)

(206) 395-8268

I have over 20 years of experience providing therapy to and supporting those who struggle with depression, anxiety, interpersonal and family conflicts, job related stress, behavioral issues in children, parenting concerns and the impact of trauma, illness and life transitions. My current practice is open to adolescents, children, adults, couples and families. I am particularly interested in supporting families in their relationships with one another and I believe in encouraging choices that are nurturing to all family members. My approach is based upon psychodynamic and developmental theories which focus on how one's history and past experiences impact the quality of one's relationships and life choices. I also utilize cognitive-behavioral methods and brief, solution-focused strategies depending upon the specific issues that are presented. In my work with children, I see my role as working in collaboration with parents to understand their child's experience and address his or her concerns. As children are usually unable to express their feelings directly, I use play therapy to encourage and facilitate figurative and indirect communication. For new clients, I provide a free phone consultation. I am eligible to be reimbursed by insurance companies and I offer a reduced rate for those with financial need. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
