Amanda Abou-Zaki, MA, LMHC 

I grew up in the Greater Seattle Area and I love the outdoors. I received my Masters of Arts in Psychology from Seattle University.

I work with individuals and couples using an integration of my existential, holistic and EMDR background. I often use Gottman methods when working with couples. I specialize in trauma, grief, loss and anxiety. Additionally, I am a certified Trauma Professional. Trauma is not always one major event that occurs, it is often an accumulation of minor events that occur overtime.

I focus the therapeutic experience on the premise there is no prescription for therapy. I do not believe people are defined by a single experience. Rather, I believe that every individual and their experiences are unique.

My hope for clients is to help them create healthy, fulfilling and rewarding lives. My work integrates different therapeutic styles and techniques depending on what fits best with the client(s) and/or situation. I try to emphasize strengths and encourage clients to draw from their past experiences in order to help them better understand their current choices, feelings, and relationships. However, the nature and course of the therapeutic work is determined by each client’s unique needs, goals and request .


Nikki Rymer, MS, LMHCA

I have lived in the Pacific Northwest my whole life.  My passion is spending time with family and friends, spending time in the outdoors hiking and backpacking.  During summers, I enjoy kayaking and boating.  I received my Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University.  

I work with individuals and couples by using integration of existential, holistic approach. I often use Gottman methods when working with couples.  I specialize in trauma, life transitions, grief and loss, anxiety and depression.  

I focus on the therapeutic experience. I do not believe that people are defined by one experience. Rather, I believe that every individual and their experiences are unique. 

My hope for my clients is to have a healthy fulfilling life by providing a strength based approach empowering them to make the best choices for their own lives.  The goal is to hold a space for clients enabling them to name and set goals, develop skills, build on strengths, and focus on living the life you have wanted to live. 

Christine Gomes, PSY.D

I was born and raised in Southern California, and moved to Washington State to be near family about 10 years ago, a couple weeks after I earned my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. I love living in the Pacific Northwest, spending time outdoors and playing with my kiddo.

In therapy, I work with individuals and couples, always from a trauma-informed perspective. I use a variety of different therapy techniques, drawing largely from Internal Family Systems Therapy, Polyvagal Theory and Somatic Psychotherapy. I believe that we are healthiest when we know and allow ourselves to be exactly who we are. I have special interests in relational and religious trauma, as well as working with people with addiction issues, severe depression, anxiety disorders, and suicidal thoughts and behaviors. No matter where you are in your healing journey, I hope to join you and help you see that you are not alone in the struggle. You are your greatest healer, and I will be your guide to help show you the way.

Bam Bam​: Therapy Dog


I grew up in Spokane, WA and after college in the Midwest and Southern California I landed in the Seattle area.

I love spending time with my wife and our dog (Mila) and cat (Gertrude). I am a huge animal lover and also an avid golfer. In my free time, my wife and I love to travel to any tropical destination or to watch Gonzaga basketball, eat good food, and enjoy a great glass of wine with friends and family.

Since moving to Seattle in 2002, I have learned to cope with the rain, but when the sun comes out and summer is upon us, I take advantage of what the Pacific Northwest provides.
