Psychotherapy with Dr. Samantha Slaughter

The overarching focus of my work is with individuals facing the challenges of trauma, life transitions, grief, and loss. I work both with survivors of childhood complex trauma as well as adults with medical and health-related trauma. I also work with persons whose goal is recovery from substance abuse. My interest in trauma includes looking at the ways in which a person's identities and positions in the larger culture affect their well-being. I have particular interests in working with people from LGBTQI communities, communities of color, and disability communities. I have conducted research on the experiences of people raised by parents who were trauma survivors. Trauma has many forms and many effects. Thus, my clients include persons living with PTSD, dissociation, anxiety, depression, health problems, complex bereavement, and substance abuse.

My work is integrative; this means that you and I work together to understand what approaches to therapy will be most effective and empowering to you. I utilize a variety of tools, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and other evidenced-based practices for the treatment of trauma. My therapeutic style and approach focus on helping you cope in the here and now by understanding the effects of earlier life experiences on your current functioning. My approach is informed by Existential, Feminist, and Client-Centered theories, which means that I am interested in how you experience the world, how you make meaning in your life, and what can empower you. I work collaboratively with my clients to generate the goals for our work.

Dr. Slaughter is not accepting new clients for psychotherapy at this time. However, please contact her if you need a letter for gender-affirming treatment or surgery.

Psychotherapy with Dr. Kathleen King

Many of the women and couples I work with feel a lot of pain in their relationships. They keep finding themselves in the same kind of relationship even when they choose different people. They despair over ever finding the right one to settle down with and start a family. Or they are dealing with their own or their partner's psychological concerns, such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), and/or autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Individuals and couples that I have worked with also worry about the kinds of issues I have listed below.

Concerns like these can be incredibly painful, even if you are only experiencing a couple of them. I understand deeply and personally how relationships can become a source of distress. I have learned in my own life that it is possible to come from a place of relationship pain to a relationship that is a source of fulfillment, satisfaction, and joy. My goal for our work together is to not only help alleviate your distress, but also provide you with the opportunity to explore your difficulties on a deeper level and learn new coping and relationship skills so you may live a healthier, happier, and more effective life.

Psychotherapy with Dr. Carmen Lasby

Therapy is a place where you can come and have a safe place to explore your life as it is now. Many people want to better their lives, better their relationships, discover their true selves, and recover from past hurts. My work is focused on working with adults who have experienced trauma and who are wanting to find new ways to think and live in the world. I am a trauma-informed therapist and specialize in complex trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

In addition to therapy, I provide psychological assessments in order to evaluate intellectual and/or emotional functioning in relation to learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and diagnostic clarifications.

I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the Fremont Community Therapy Project where I received trauma-informed training on therapy and assessment. I also led and facilitated dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) groups. My former experience included working two years with women and children at a recovery shelter in Seattle, Washington. This included working with homeless individuals and families, those in recovery from substance use, women coming out of domestic violence, and children who had experienced or witnessed great trauma. I have specific training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), DBT, and Lifespan Integration (LI).
