Jamie Coronato, LMFTA
I believe that people and families already hold the strength and skills they need to move forward within themselves. What we might view as brokenness is simply something that is blocking the access to our own strengths and growth, individually or in relationship with others.
Given the opportunity, space and support, individuals and families will naturally move toward insight, growth, and positive change.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is essential, and I will take the time to get to know you and your story, as we build trust together. Through this, I work to build a space where you feel safe to show up as your whole self.
I bring humor, warmth, play, and art into this space, in as much as it feels comfortable to you. I come from a place of trusting your experience and expertise of your own life.
I use a collaborative and integrative approach to support you in moving forward on your journey. I use a variety of tools and approaches, including Experiential Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Attachment Theory, and Play Therapy.
Whether working with you as an individual, or working with a family together, I look for patterns in communication and relationships in order to support you in increased connection within family and community. I take a trauma-informed approach, and understand that experiences of trauma and oppression can have significant impact on one’s self-acceptance, behaviors, and relationships. I work to see people in their full context, considering culture and intersectional identities throughout the therapeutic process, and practice anti-oppression and non-judgmental therapy.
When working with children or teens, I ask for parental involvement. How this looks is unique to each family, and we will work together to find the right balance for you. I believe that all parents are doing the best that they can, and that supporting parents and families is key in supporting a child or teen. In working with teenagers, I will support them in considering the amount of family involvement throughout therapy.

I earned my MA in Couples and Family Therapy from Antioch University Seattle. Prior to receiving my Masters, I earned my BA degree in Psychology from Northwestern State University of Louisiana. My career has included community-based mental health, school-based mental health, crisis services, and residential treatment. I’m lucky to have worked and learned with diverse populations, and to bring these experiences to my work now.
I am licensed in the state of Washington as a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (credential #MG61205464), and am a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (Washington Division) (AAMFT/WAMFT) and the Queer and Trans Advocacy Network (QTAN).
