Therapist in Renton, Washington Valerie Castillo, MS, LMHCA

Valerie Castillo, MS, LMHCA

I believe that the client is the expert of their own lives. I find great importance in taking into consideration the historical and current social, political, economic, and cultural impacts on each client. I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental, and collaborative space for each of my clients where they feel received whilst working toward their definition of healing in the process.

My goal is to support clients in stepping into their most authentic and empowered version of themselves using a strengths-based approach. Treatment includes a collaborative, individualized plan for therapy using a humanistic, person-centered approach. We work together as a team to inch toward your goals, trialing and refining current skills while adding skills to your coping toolkit.

I enjoy working with the following: young adults, couples, Trauma (intergenerational, CPTSD, PTSD), BIPOC Issues, Depression/Anxiety, Communication Skills, Boundary Setting, Life Changes/Adjustments, Grief and Loss, Self-Esteem, Coping skills, Body Positivity, Spirituality.

Please note that I do not provide services related to L&I, FLMA, disability, divorce/custody cases, court-ordered cases, and any other legal disputes.

In my free time, I enjoy sporadically learning about anything, improving my techniques in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, perusing historical locations, and spending time with my two rescue dogs from Texas.
Hope to work with you soon!
