Patti McClure, LMHCA       

What type of clients do you work with?

I work with families, couples, and individuals over the age of 15. People I am particularly interested in serving include couples navigating infidelity or other relationship trauma, individuals experiencing severe anxiety or traumatic loss, and transgender individuals and their partners addressing transition challenges.

What would you like clients to know about how you work?

There’s no cookie cutter approach to therapy. I use different techniques with each person based on who you are and what you’re experiencing. My goal, always, is to support you in living a life consistent with your deepest intentions, needs, and values.

Sometimes that work begins with a deep exploration of how past experiences and relationships hinder you now from acting skillfully toward what you want. Sometimes it requires facing painful realities in your life that can’t be fixed or changed, and summoning the courage and compassion to grieve the losses fully, to forgive, and to move forward. And always it involves learning to trust your own wisdom and creativity.  I don’t bring the solutions; I hold the space for you to find them for yourself.

What days of the week do you see clients?

I see clients on  Wednesdays in my Marysville office, and on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays in my Seattle (Phinney Ridge) office.

Do you accept insurance?

I do not currently accept insurance. However, I am happy to provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. I change $100/hour and accept cash, checks, credit cards, and HSA cards.

What else are you passionate about

My latest passion is rowing the Snohomish River! I am generally happy doing anything outdoors; bonus points if it involves a dog, a mountain, a fresh alpine lake, or a starry sky. When indoors, I like to be on the dance floor or sitting nose buried in a good book. I rely on meditation, yoga, and wise friends to keep me in my body and in the here and now.
