Cassie Matsuzaki, MS, LMHC, NCC
My goal in therapy is to create an environment in which people people feel safe to share about themselves and their lives. I view therapeutic relationships as a partnership, collaborating with clients to address identified concerns. I believe that this relationship is the most essential factor in the healing, change and growth process.
I employ a Person Centered, Strength Based approach in therapy, letting the needs of the individual drive the therapeutic process. I often use directive and non-directive techniques as needed to promote positive change and growth. I value using different mediums to promote healing and growth, including art, play, and other expressive techniques. I utilize evidence-based practices including CBT, DBT skills, MI, and BSFT as appropriate during treatment. I am training in using TF-CBT and have successfully used this modality to address trauma and trauma related concerns in children and adolescents.
I am a licensed mental health counselor who graduated with a Masters of Science degree in Applied Psychology: Mental Health Counseling from Easter Washington University. Upon completion of my degree, I worked in community mental health for over seven years. I have experience working with a diverse clientele and specialize in treating depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, life transitions, and trauma.
I work with children (10+), adolescents, and adults. I have over six years of experience working specifically with children, adolescents, and their families. I especially enjoy working with adolescents and young adults, addressing the unique needs of this age group.
I look forward to working with you and your healing and growth journey!
