Elizabeth Sikes, PhD, LMHCA, Counselor in Seattle

I’m Elizabeth Sikes, PhD, LMHC, and my practice is called Interconnected Counseling.

I specialize in working with adults through grief and loss, major life transitions, mood disorders (depression, anxiety, and bipolar illness), and ADHD.

My background as a PhD is in existential philosophy. This overlaps with my counseling orientation rooted in existential/phenomenological psychology, which is wholistic, relational, and psychodynamic. As a long time practitioner of Zen meditation, I also offer psychotherapy from a mindfulness, self-compassion-oriented, Buddhist perspective. Other approaches informing my work are feminist and environmental. I am a faculty member of the New School for Analytical Psychology in Seattle

Currently I work Sunday-Thursday. On Sundays and Mondays I am at my Smith tower office in downtown Seattle. Tuesday through Thursday I see patients at my office in Madison Valley, near the Arboretum.
