Eliza Baughn, MA, LMHC

PortraitI think of psychotherapy as a process of removing the mental barriers to living a life that reflects your values and dreams. I may be able to help you discover how your feelings have shaped you; how feelings are a valuable source of information and an ingredient that makes up a rich life. 

I am passionate about working with young adults actively thinking about their identity, career and relationships.

I also specialize in working with parents of young children. I believe the intensity of caring for babies and young children opens up unparalleled avenues of growth and learning in adult life. It’s my deep privilege to support humans in this season of life called parenting.

When you come into the office you’ll be introduced to a talk therapy style in which you are invited to speak about whatever is on your mind. The particular approach to the therapy I offer called Psychoanalytic/Object Relations is backed up by decades of qualitative research. Psychoanalytic therapy is a front line treatment for seriously limiting mental health concerns. Depression and Anxiety impact people differently, almost always in unhelpful ways. Sessions may be experienced as a process of discovery, an opportunity to slow down and consider your feelings and experiences in a way that counters the symptoms of mental health problems. 

Does my work align with your reasons for being here today?

While my strengths lie in working from a psychoanalytic perspective, I have unique training in complementary and alternative medicine for mental health, feminist theory in counseling, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from Bastyr University and completed an intern/externship at Seattle Therapy Alliance where I provided low cost psychotherapy to womxn. Prior to my work as a therapist, I worked four years full time as a birth doula helping womxn and their families during pregnancy and childbirth in a variety of settings. My role included hands on support in homes and hospitals for postpartum recovery, infant care, feeding, and bonding.
