Jumping in the Leaves

The Center for Relational and Family Therapy (CRAFT) is a collaborative of clinicians who practice integrative therapy within a relational framework. Our therapists understand the problems patients face in the context of the social world and relationships with others. We practice evidence-based approaches to therapy and our child clinical psychologists have received specialized training in child development and psychology.

Our team follows the best practices in our field that are described by the American Psychological Association, National Association of Social Workers, Washington Administrative Code for Psychologists and Social Workers and other specific ethics codes and guidelines. Each of these documents describe our responsibilities to you as your doctor or therapist. We also strive to foster the following values in our practice: Relationality, Craft, Care, and Context. In addition to reading more about these values here, talk to your therapist about what this means for you and your family.  


We believe that people are social beings where

psychological problems are created and healed in relationships.


Therapists for any problem at every age

We welcome you to contact our therapists for an initial meeting or phone conversation to get an idea if they could be a good fit for you or your family. Our therapists have been practicing in the mental health field for over 10 years and are all licensed in Washington State.

For Families, Children, Teens, Parents and Adults

Anxiety, depression, trauma, social difficulties, and problems with school and work are a few of the areas that might bring you or your family to therapy. At The Center for Relational and Family Therapy, our therapists are licensed professionals that are comfortable with a range of issues. We see individuals, children, parents, and entire families.

Individual Therapy

Adults, teens and children can be seen in one-on-one therapy. It is common for most therapists at our Center to recommend a weekly meeting. For adults, therapy often involves talking to the therapist in a confidential and comfortable treatment room. We strive to make the therapy room feel like a home-environment rather than a clinic. For children, we offer play and expressive arts therapy; we have two uniquely designed child therapy rooms. Teens and pre-teens sometimes enjoy a blend of talk therapy and interactive therapy games. In general, we try to make the therapy environment as welcoming and non-intimidating as possible. Speak with your therapist to learn more about what therapy might look like for you. 

Team Therapy

For younger children or teens, our team may recommend wrap-around care where parent-child, parent coaching, and individual child therapy are all possibilities. We also offer family or sibling therapy where each child can have their own therapist, and the therapists work as a cohesive treatment team with the parents.

Neuropsychological, Academic, and Forensic Psychological Assessment

Our team specializes in assessment and diagnosis of neuropsychological disorders such as ADHD and autism spectrum disorders. We also offer academic and psycho-social testing for school accommodations. We can work with your school on the design of an IEP or 504 plan and recommend tailored tutoring. Our licensed psychologists have completed advanced training in forensic family assessment and are available for consultation and records review for court purposes.


Here For You When Life Gets Complicated

Sometimes families come to us with complex referral questions: Should my child receive an assessment from an outside psychologist or the school psychologist? How do I create a parenting plan? Should I begin medications now or just start with therapy? How do I find a psychologist that will serve as an expert witness in Court for my family? For all the questions life throws at you, we can provide consultation. Our therapists can meet you for one or more sessions to direct you to the next steps. We can also create a comprehensive treatment plan and connect you to the appropriate resources and support. We can even provide care management, attend meetings outside of the Center, and follow-up to make sure all professionals involved in the treatment remain on the same page. 

Forensic Consultation

Our psychologists have specialized training in forensic psychology for questions that pertain to domestic violence, sexual abuse, family and dependency court, CPS, divorce, custody and other common forensic issues.

The majority of our clinicians are contracted with several major insurance companies including those listed below and more.  We will also submit claims as out-of-network providers, which means you can be partially reimbursed for the cost of the session.
Two of our clinicians accept Medicare and Medicaid (Apple Care/Molina).
Call us and your insurance company to confirm coverage prior to your first visit.
