It’s easy to feel like everything you say is wrong. Easy to wonder if your family isn’t working the way it’s supposed to. Maybe there are days when understanding your children feels like an impossible goal.

Family systems can be a source of support and love, but often they also involve dysfunctional patterns that can cause a lot of pain and resentment. 

Our Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs) take a holistic approach to help you realize effective, lasting improvements within your family unit.

We’re proud to offer family counseling services to clients in Auburn, Federal Way, Puyallup, Kent, and Tacoma. If you’re interested in a faith-based approach to family therapy, we also have select therapists who are able to provide this service.

Change is possible. Our team is invested in the continual and lasting growth of our clients, providing meaningful support that empowers you to write your own story.

Twin Lakes Counseling Therapists who provide family therapy and parenting support:

Family Therapy

Who do you turn to when you need to know what’s best for your child? How do you deal with the stresses of raising a child or teen growing up in a world that’s very different from the one you experienced? Which boundaries will be helpful and which restrictions will hurt? Our family therapy sessions put someone in your corner, helping you make decisions about what will keep your child healthy, safe, and happy.

Parenting Training

How would it change things if you could have reliable support for your children as you put your life back together?

If you are going through a divorce and looking for a way to keep the pain and stress that you’re feeling from hurting your children, we provide you with a safe place and assistance in making the decisions you now have to make by yourself. Maybe you want help knowing what boundaries you should set, or want someone to meet with your kids and give them extra care and attention during this difficult time.

Our family therapists are proud to provide parental support and training, helping you to forge meaningful connections with your children and decide upon effective strategies for sorting out parenting disagreements.

Counseling for Adolescents (and their Parents)

Are you beginning to wonder if there’s more going on in your teen's life than you realize? If you could have an honest discussion, what would they tell you?

Perhaps you sense a growing distance in your relationship and wonder if they might need help. The teenage years are scary ones for parents. Teens can suffer from depression, self-harm, bullying, thoughts of suicide, loneliness and isolation, poor grades, substance abuse, and violence. In these challenging years, healthy communication is vital.

Our therapists’ goal is to help adolescents communicate better with their parents and to help parents communicate better with their kids. We can help you examine your own blind spots and consider whether they might be preventing you from understanding what your teenager is be going through. With love and effort, you can create a loving relationship and provide the support and care your teen needs to face their challenges.

Children’s Counseling

Children deal with a unique set of stresses.

Anxiety in children can make the world seem scary or impossible. Our approach to child therapy is to provide the kids who visit us with a safe space where they can come in and process their emotions through talking, play, and art.

Our child therapists believe in helping our youngest clients to develop emotional literacy, which means that we use activities to teach them how to understand and name their emotions. Then we provide them with tools, allowing them to translate the discoveries and strategies they learn in our office to their own lives in the outside world.

Change is possible. Our team is invested in our clients' continual and lasting growth, providing meaningful support that empowers you to write your own story.
