Anna Hedly Goeke, MA, LMFT
As a therapist, I draw not only on my education, but also on my life experience. My work is highly informed by my degree in systems counseling and my training in the following:
Gottman Method Couples Therapy (GMCT)
Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
Les Greenberg's Emotion Focused Therapy
I believe that people are complex. My varied background and life experience helps me work with a variety of personalities and issues. I earned my Bachelor Degree in Computer Science, and my Masters Degree in Applied Behavioral Science with a focus on Systems Counseling. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Washington and a Certified Gottman Therapist. The aspects of my background that I draw on the most are my multi-cultural background, my professional work experience, and my personal experience as a daughter, wife, divorcee, and mother. My growing up years spanned four different countries. My work experience, prior to becoming a therapist, includes thirteen years in high-tech, five of which were in management in corporate America. In addition I have facilitated multiple workshops, adult education classes, volunteered as a coach with personal growth organizations, and have been a certified image consultant. I continue to educate myself both formally and informally.
Anna's Fee is $160 / 50 minute session
