Committed to helping our clients achieve hope and wholeness
Beginning your journey to wholeness is very important. We all need help at certain times. Some need brief help to get on the right track. Some need a longer psychotherapeutic approach by starting the healing journey earlier in life.
Some don't know what they need, only that they have no goals, direction, or motivation. Some have major problems that seem like a tangled ball of yarn to untangle and make out of it something beautiful.
As an Individual, Couples and Family therapist, there are a number of directions one can go. The right pathway will be ultimately chosen by you, with me standing in support with you.
My desire is to walk with you in overcoming fear, anxiety and loneliness. I want to assist you in finding peace, joy and fulfillment.
Embrace with hope and courage the emotional freedom that hundreds of thousands of people all over the world have found to be a reality. Faith-based counselor, Dr. Rita Bennett, will gently lead you through a series of real-life examples, checklists, and personal evaluations as you find the source of your pain and relinquish it.
Rita has written twelve bestselling books which includes her classic book, "You Can Be Emotionally Free." She has traveled to bring her healing message across the US, and to England, Scotland, Singapore, Jamaica, Norway, Germany, Ethiopia, and New Zealand.
Rita shares, “There are two kinds of traumas that begin in childhood. Type one trauma comes from neglect of things we should have received as a child. Type two trauma comes from bad or evil happenings that occur early in life. Without the healing needed, the person gets stuck in the past, not being able to mature properly. If two wounded inner children of either type become a couple, they will most likely need counseling for survival of their marriage.
You may contact Dr. Bennett for counseling at her office in the Seattle area. Distance counseling is also available via telephone.
