Rachel Caulk, LMHCA

ABOUT RACHEL


I believe relationships are the foundational piece upon which healthy and functional lives are built; that we all flourish when we live in connection with others, engaging mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. These same relationships may also be the cause of one’s greatness pain or struggle. The therapeutic relationship we will develop will serve as our foundation in addressing past and present wounds. Together, my hope is that we can find healing and growth.

My approach to counseling is informed by all things attachment: EFT, the Gottman Method, Lifespan Integration, SYMBIS, and family systems theories. Throughout the counseling process, we will partner to address the unique challenges and experiences that have come with being in relationships with self and others. It is my goal for this to include implementing new and more effective strategies for future problem-solving and creating healthier decisions. 

I have lived in the Seattle area most of my life. My husband and I have been married fourteen years and were licensed foster parents in Washington State for six years. Together, we have three children. In my free time, I enjoy being active, cheering on my children at their various sporting events, and enjoying a meal with family and friends.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Religious Studies/International Development with a Concentration in Psychology from Trinity Western University, and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Northwest University.

Melissa Monahan, MA, LMHCA, NCC

ABOUT MELISSA


We all know struggling is part of life but sometimes it feels like that’s all you do.  Times are hard right now but you don’t need to struggle alone.  You deserve to thrive and have a sense of purpose and dignity.

My approach to counseling starts with the relationship.  Forming a healthy, safe, and confidential space is the key to start the healing process. I use an attachment and neurological based approach to therapy.  So much of what happens inside us happens “behind the scenes.”  Using EMDR, EFT, Lifespan Integration, The Gottman Method, and SYMBIS I am able to help individuals and couples uncover the how/why and move forward from their stuck places.

When I’m not in the office you’ll typically find me with my husband and children on one of our Pokémon outings or geocaching adventures around Washington state.  I enjoy the outdoors and love running, biking, and swimming having completed several Ironman triathlons.
