Michelle Owaka Kabuye, PsyD

Description of Counselor/Practice

Limited openings at this time. Please keep in mind that I am online only. Coming to therapy is a courageous step! And I want to honor your courage. I believe that how we work together is an important part of your journey. So I work to create a warm, emotionally safe environment for you to share. Our relationship is used as the catalyst for your growth. I can appreciate the need to talk to a person of color about difficulties that you are facing, and I will work with you to address racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity; living as a person of color in Seattle; acculturation; immigration concerns; being a "third culture kid;" or dealing with microaggressions. Furthermore if you want to incorporate your faith, I am trained to discuss spirituality and religion. Conversely, I also make space to discuss trauma and pain experienced within a religious setting. I work from an Interpersonal Psychotherapy theoretical orientation. And, I am trained in both short-term and long-term treatment approaches. Some of the common concerns that I have treated include depression, anxiety, work stress, relationship concerns, attachment issues, grief, vicarious trauma, trauma, sexual health, disordered eating and body image. Some populations that I work with include helping professionals, such as medical and mental health providers. I am considered an out-of-network provider, since I do not accept insurance. Please ask about superbills early on, if you're interested in trying to get a partial reimbursement from your insurer.
