Stephen Crippen Therapy

Are you frustrated or upset about your relationship?

I help people with their relationship problems.

Do you lose sleep sometimes, worrying about your relationship? Do you love your spouse or partner, but can't help being angry with them? Are you thinking about ending it? Or are you worried your partner is about to end it? Do you wonder where it all went wrong?

I work with individuals and couples who are trying to make sense of all this. It can be wonderful to be in a relationship, but it can be difficult, too. If you want to make sense of your situation, communicate better, and move forward, I might be able to help you.

Is it already over? I also help people pick up the pieces after a relationship has ended.

You might feel like a failure, like you screwed up. Maybe you call yourself "damaged goods" because, you think, "I wasn't good enough to keep my partner, and now I'm single again. Who would want me?" I help people who are feeling this way. I help them talk it out, work it out, and move forward. It's not easy - I know, I've been there. But I help people through these hard times in their lives.

If you live in or near Seattle, I'm not far away.

My office is located in the West Queen Anne neighborhood in Seattle. I can give you more specific information when we talk. I would love to talk to you by email or telephone to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you have.

Not sure you're ready for counseling?

That's understandable, especially if you've never talked to a counselor before. You might want to explore my Blog if you're still not sure and would like to learn more about relationship problems, find book recommendations, or join a discussion.

How Do I Get Started, and What Does it Cost?

You can contact me by phone at (206) 214-7650 or email me to get started. You can also click here for a full description of fees, how to schedule appointments online, and how to make payments. The length of my appointments is one hour ($120) for individuals and 1.5 hours ($175) for couples. I am able to offer reduced rates to a percentage of my current clients; let's discuss this if you are in financial need. Whether or not you’re sure you want to come in, I’d love to talk with you about your needs and concerns (phone calls are always free), and I offer a half-hour "meet and greet" session free of charge for all potential clients. The first step is often the hardest. Let me know if you just need help sorting out what you’d like to do.
