These are the symbolic meanings of the protea (pronounced: pro-TAY-uh) flower, and why we chose this as a symbol of our practice. Because we understand the courage and daring it takes to take the step to create a real transformation in your life.
Even if you don't think you are these things- just reaching out to start the work proves you are, and we can help you believe it too!
And diversity, an especially important meaning for us, because our most important values are inclusiveness and working with clients from an anti-oppression lens.

Protea Wellness acknowledges that our offices are located on important traditional, ancestral, and contemporary lands of Indigenous people. Our offices occupy land that was, or is, cared for and called home by the Coast Salish People, particularly the Duwamish (dxʷdəwʔabš), Muckleshoot (bəqəlšuł), and Suquamish (Suqwabš) peoples.
We invite you to join Protea Wellness in paying rent for land use to the Duwamish tribe at Real Rent Duwamish.
Our offices are in a little craftsman house near the Morgan Junction in West Seattle. Plenty of free street parking is available throughout the neighborhood and the office is very close to stops for bus routes 22, 116, 118, 119, 128, 773 and the C-Line.
The office is, unfortunately, not accessible to those who cannot climb some stairs. We do, however, provide counseling via online sessions. There is also an option for clinicians to visit clients in their home or other preferred location, if they are unable come to the office either because of distance or disability.
Our offices are kept scent-free.
