Counseling in Bellingham, Washington

Now accepting new clients for in-person and online therapy sessions.

You look good. You even sound good, but underneath it all, you don’t feel good. 

Whether it’s stress coming from work, from a struggling relationship or from unresolved trauma, not feeling like yourself can take its toll, not only mentally and emotionally, but also physically. 

At Inside Passage Relationship Counseling, located in the historic Fairhaven neighborhood of Bellingham Washington, we specialize in evidence-based, trauma-informed therapies for adult and teen individuals, couples, and families. Together we can help you to explore your inner world, heal from past wounds and unlock the full potential to live a life of ease. 

Adult and Teen Individual Therapy

We’ll start by building a supportive working relationship so that you can feel safe to open up and explore your inner and outer world. Your therapist will give you suggestions for what to focus on in order to help you reach your goals, but you are ultimately in the driver’s seat in determining where you go in your sessions.

Couples and Marriage Therapy

Relationships are hard and you can’t always see your way through the storm. You need someone outside of your relationship, a professional, an experienced guide—who can help you get clearer on what’s happening and show you a way out of your struggles and into positive, new patterns.

Family Therapy

We all want what’s best for our family. Unfortunately, we don’t always have the tools to know how to navigate our own emotions or the behaviors and emotions of our most precious people. Inside Passage Relationship Counseling can help. Therapists in our collective compassionately work with families to gain the skills and tools they need to regulate emotion, change patterns of thinking, process and heal from past events, develop healthier relationships with one another, and explore potential strategies for navigating  life’s challenges.
