Hoping someone can recommend a marriage counselor in Seattle... need someone really wise as my husband is very skeptical(his experiences with therapy have not been good). Please help!

We saw Barbara Brown in Renton a few years ago. I LOVED her. I think a skeptic would like her as well. She is no BS and tells you like it is. Even though she is in Renton I say it is worth the drive from Seattle.

Jennifer Elf, used to be in Bellevue but looks like she moved to Bothell.

She's affiliated with the Gottman Institute. I'd recommend any therapist who is affiliated with the Gottman Institute, actually.

I'd second checking into the Gottman Inst. May be more expensive, but his work is all research based which I think often resonates better with the male brain

We LOVED Jeremy Moss http://www.insiderpages.com/doctors/...oss-MA-Seattle

Plus, he's a dude. From my experience Dudes do way better with Dude therapists. Jeremy also doesn't believe in pathological therapy (e.g. therapy forever). He helps till you don't need him anymore. Done and done!

Good luck!

My husband and I had a really good experience with Eileen Stein.

http://www.eileenstein.com/

She's very supportive of AP stuff and was able to help us sort out our problems without us needing to feel defensive about our choices to breastfeed and co-sleep.

I know this is a bit late but I wanted to rec the Gottman Institute too. I've had several friends that rave and my own therapist has great things to say about it.
