Starting therapy at Two Chairs is simple. You can book a matching appointment online or speak with someone on our Care Coordination Team by calling (415) 202-5159 anytime between 8:00 am to 6:00 pm PT, Monday through Friday.

Whether you're new to therapy or have past experience, finding the right therapist in Seattle can feel like a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be. When you schedule your matching appointment, we'll ask you a series of questions so we can learn more about you and your preferences for therapy. We will also send you a Client Profile to fill out after you book with us that we highly recommend you fill out to make the most of your time with the matching expert. During your virtual matching appointment, one of our licensed matching experts will dive deeper to understand what brings you to therapy, and will make sure we match you with the best therapist and the right type of therapy for you. You can learn more about how Two Chairs helps you find the right therapist on our blog.

In addition to making sure we match people  with the right therapist in Seattle, we check in with our clients regularly to help them reflect on different aspects of their mental health so they can feel confident about the progress they’re making.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) uses a mix of acceptance, mindfulness, and behavior change strategies to improve mental wellbeing and increase psychological flexibility. ACT is a very experiential type of therapy that uses in-session exercises, metaphor, language, and physical movement to focus on living a values-based life instead of getting stuck in the process of needing to "get rid" of suffering.

One of the biggest skills gained through ACT is listening to your own self-talk—the way you verbalize and understand things like past trauma, physical limitations, past relationships, or anything else on your plate. And, with that understanding, choosing how to move through it—either by change or by acceptance.

Whether you've previously done ACT or are new to this therapeutic approach, your therapist in Seattle can provide the guidance and support needed to navigate your journey.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

If you're on the lookout for Seattle therapists who specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we may be able to match you with the right one for you.

CBT is a here-and-now approach to examining how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and impact our overall well-being. CBT focuses on identifying maladaptive thinking and behavioral patterns and implementing specific strategies to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, etc.

CBT is an active, problem-focused approach that helps to directly challenge various cognitive distortions and change unhelpful patterns of thinking and behavior.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), an approach used by some of our Seattle therapists, focuses on learning to manage difficult or intense emotions and to decrease conflict in relationships. The underlying philosophy of DBT hinges on the important dialectic that we are all doing the best we can, and we have the ability to be better. DBT specifically focuses on providing CBT-like therapeutic skills in four key areas—mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

By working with one of our counselors in Seattle, WA, trained in DBT, you can gain invaluable tools and strategies for managing emotions and improving your interpersonal relationships.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

Finding the best therapist in Seattle for you who is trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) could be beneficial for your emotional and relationship health.

EFT is a present-focused form of therapy that focuses on identifying the way you form relationships, maintain, and act in relationships with yourself and others. Originally developed for couples therapy, EFT sessions help individuals and couples identify emotional patterns, learn to regulate emotions and more accurately identify needs, and re-wire painful patterns of relating.

With your therapist, you'll look at past patterns and work through any anger, fear, or loss of trust—coming out the other end, able to connect with others in a way that feels true, unburdened, and genuine.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic Therapy is an in-depth form of talk therapy focused on building insight into your relationship with yourself, others, and the external world. Psychodynamic therapies focus on exploring unconscious motivations, early life experiences, and patterns in relationships through the therapeutic relationship.

Speaking freely about whatever is on your mind to address your most pressing issues, fears, or desires. In psychodynamic therapy in Seattle with Two Chairs, you'll learn to analyze and resolve any current issues through exploration of self and past.

We are building a world where everyone has access to exceptional mental health care.

Embarking on your therapeutic journey with Two Chairs is not just simple — it's empowering. We currently provide therapy in-person and virtually in California, Florida, and Washington.
