About My Clients

Seaward is an intern therapist at MEND Seattle. The organization provides quality, reasonable-cost mental health counseling to individuals, couples and groups. We are a collective of healers with diverse educational backgrounds and identities committed to an anti-oppressive and liberatory approach to therapy. We emphasize serving the QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Community. Seaward specializes in depression, anxiety and mood.

My Background and Approach

Seaward is a third-year graduate student in the dual track Master of Nutrition and Counseling program at Bastyr University with four years of experience providing nutrition, mental health, and substance use counseling. As a counselor, Seaward considers the whole person within their context including the biological, social, psychological and spiritual aspects of being because she believes that healing is a unique and comprehensive journey. To facilitate growth and understanding, Seaward uses modalities such as mindfulness, person-centered therapy, motivational interviewing, and trauma informed care. Seaward strives to partner with you in creating a collaborative, therapeutic space to explore what you need to heal and move forward in your life with greater confidence and purpose.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

MEND Seattle values intersectional feminism and liberatory practices as a guide in our work of building a dynamic social justice mental health organization. We are committed to consistent critical thinking, reflection, and understanding of how systemic power structures work on us to shape our intrapsychic lives, our interpersonal relationships, and MEND’s institutional realities. We believe that critical social theory and an anti-oppressive lens are essential tools to personal and collective transformation. As a team, we aim to center our QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color) voices and needs in the community.
