CHARISSA WALSON

FOUNDER - THERAPIST

MA, LMHC

I have worked in the mental health field since 2008 in Western Washington. I have been privileged to collaborate in a variety of settings ranging from crisis intervention to one-on-one treatment.

The bulk of my career has been working with at-risk youth and families struggling with an array of issues, each with their own unique story to tell. What I have learned from collaborating with clients is that each of us has such a beautiful story that I hold with the utmost respect.

For graduate school I acquired a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology. During my time at The Seattle School I worked with a number of community services agencies. I have worked in a variety of settings from client’s homes, their communities as well as facilitating a snowboarding program through the agency for teens to be able to learn how to snowboard. I have also had the opportunity to work with adults in a one-on-one office setting. Each agency and client has taught and impacted who I am and my approach in therapy. My desire is to serve my clients by exploring what they hope and desire for themselves.

Another interest that I have acquired along my journey is a passion for culture and art. I attended Biola University where I received an undergraduate degree in Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design. During that time I lived in Europe and was immersed in many different cultures, traditions, and art forms which has impacted my personal love of culture.
