Therapist Edwin Wea Photo

About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor, in the State of Washington for over 20 years. I am trained in multiple modalities: cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivation interviewing, client-centered therapy, rational-emotive therapy and hypnotherapy. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, couple's counseling, family therapy. I specialize in working with multicultural individuals and blended families. I am a minority mental health specialist for African Americans. I have experience working with military individuals.

My style of interaction emphasizes the importance of unconditional positive regard. I promote a couple's growth, healing and self-actualization. I treat all couples with dignity and respect, recognizing that therapy is a unique experience for each client. I tailor my approach to the couples strengths and their desire for specific behavioral change.

Counseling is a special journey for each person. It takes courage and motivation to seek help, working with someone you have never met before. I encourage the couple to openly discuss their concerns/reflection throughout the counseling process, so that his/her journey is a good experience. I recognize that it is an honor to help clients explore change in their live, at their pace.

I look forward to helping you help yourself.

Edwin has been nothing but amazing and truly genuine through this entire process. My husband and I started therapy because we were one foot out the door and didn’t see an end in sight. We have been in therapy now for 2 months and the progression we have made to date is truly astonishing. He is patient, kind, understanding and extremely knowledgeable and has presented multiple resources we can use to heal our marriage. Without Edwin, I don’t think we would have made it. We are still in the early stages of therapy but the progression to date is again astonishing. We owe the success to him. Jen and Jon

I say it now, as I have before. Edwin is beyond effective, supportive, and capable. Edwin kind tone, and words bring so much positive energy. I can't think of anyone else more suitable to support me during this time. Edwin is more than help, he's a blessing.

I reached out for therapy because I had hit a dead end in my relationship. I felt there was no hope. Mr. Wea has been a lighthouse in the darkness. He offers so much support and great strategies that have bettered me personally and my relationship. He shows me the importance of reflecting within and how to relate with others. If it wasn’t for him my relationship probably would’ve ended. Now my spouse and I are thriving and finding new ways to communicate with one another. Mr. Wea’s guidance clearly comes from the heart and his honesty and transparency is refreshing. He never picks sides and always gives us space to express our feelings. I’m so grateful for Mr. Wea and I would highly recommend his services to anyone who is feeling there is no hope left. I guarantee you Mr. Wea will show you that it’s possible to navigate through it all.

We threw some curveballs out of left field at poor Edwin, but he handled it well. Highly recommend, we plan on continuing to see him for maintenance at least for the forseeable future.

Edwin is very friendly and professional. He immediately made us feel at ease and he's always understanding and a good listener. He works hard to understand both our perspectives. He's great at recalling details from previous sessions and tailoring advice specifically to us. I would 100% recommend him to a friend!
