Live Well Love Well Be Well

"Live Well, Love Well, Be Well"
​- Allyson K. Stivers MA, LMHC

Woodinville Psychotherapy Marriage Couple individual Therapy

Allyson is gifted at understanding how to help couples and individuals figure out where they are stuck and move forward. Specializing in the change process she gives clients a new way to experience a relationship with self, other, and world. Her style is compassionate and straightforward getting to the issues in a productive effective way which allows clients to benefit from the work from day one. Allyson brings a positive and hopeful perspective to the hard work that brings about lasting change. Her clients leave feeling and seeing that change is possible for anyone at any stage of life. 


As well as being the Mother of four teenagers, I have a Masters in Existential Phenomenological Psychology from Seattle University and a degree in interdisciplinary studies with an emphasis in community psychology from the University of Washington. I have earned a Mindnsight Immersion Certification from Dr. Daniel J. Siegel and completed The Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy Immersion Course from Dr. Diana Fosha.  I enjoy writing poetry, painting, interior design, and the creative arts. My best days are those that I spend with the love of my life, my husband Greg, and my children.

Before starting a private practice, I worked with combat veterans from Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan at the Seattle Vet Center, and I also worked with homeless women and children in transitional housing in association with Vision House. One of my favorite endeavors was a humanitarian trip with the organization Until Then, working with impoverished women and children suffering from AIDS in the village of Dagga in Kenya, Africa. Over the years I have been afforded the opportunity to sit with thousands of people listening to and witnessing their transitions in living. My experience in working with a large and diverse number of people has given me the ability to work with clients on a deeply authentic healing level, helping to create a space where together we find powerful, meaningful solutions to life.

"Allyson is one of the most enthusiastic, caring, and insightful psychotherapists I've had the pleasure to supervise and work with.  She has an enormous capacity for empathy."
