restoring hope . . . reconciling relationships . . . transforming lives
We provide high quality, faith-integrative, affordable counseling for individuals, couples and families in 20 locations in Seattle, Bellevue and the Eastside,
South King County, Pierce and Kitsap Counties.
Each of our therapists has a master's or doctoral degree. They represent a variety of mental health disciplines and are licensed by the State of Washington. All Samaritan therapists identify themselves as Christian.
While our roots and tradition are in the Christian community, Samaritan welcomes people of all faiths, backgrounds and lifestyles. We believe that healing occurs on multiple levels--mind, body, spirit and soul--and are always willing to consider with our clients the spiritual as well as psychological aspects of healing and growth.
We seek to make our services as affordable as possible. We accept a number of insurance plans and, when the income of our clients is limited, we offer fee assistance to the extent our resources allow.
In addition to counseling, we offer mediation services, consultation and education. This includes professional education for therapists, consultation with clergy and congregations, and workshops, seminars and classes for church congregations and community organizations.
We first opened our doors in 1960 as Presbyterian Counseling Service. Our accreditation is through the Samaritan Institute which was established in 1972 and oversees more than 80 professional counseling centers in the U.S. and Tokyo, Japan.
