Tom Freeman, LMFT, is a licensed Marriage and Family therapist, having worked as the director of programs in community mental health, as a research associate in behavioral health at a major Seattle research institute, and in private practice. He has worked in creative modalities with children for the past 25 years and has provided individual and couple’s counseling, family counseling and facilitated group counseling sessions. Most recently, he has gone through advanced training in dispute resolution and functioned as a mediator in small claims court for the Dispute Resolution Center of King County. Tom maintains professional affiliations with both the American and Washington Associations of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT and WAMFT).
Tom’s therapeutic approach starts from a cognitive-behavioral framework and is deeply informed by mindful awareness of what one is thinking and feeling from moment to moment. He seeks to build upon the principles of holistic health, recognizing that good mental health is supported by good physical health. Likewise, he recognizes that good relationship health is supported by the mental health of the individuals within that relationship.
He has extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship issues, sexual questioning, gender questioning (operating from an ICATH model), and the development of mindful awareness. He is currently available for individual and couple’s counseling at our Silverdale office.
