The South Seattle Emerald is pleased to announce a monthly column, “Ask A Therapist,” which will answer questions you may have by professional counselors. Have a question about a relationship? Wondering about the struggles of being a parent? Others likely have the same questions, and counselors Liz Covey and Roy Fisher bring years of professional experience to provide their insights.
If you have a question, please click here and let us know. We will select two questions each month to answer. The form requires no email address or identification and is completely anonymous. If you are in crisis or in immediate need of care, please contact Crisis Connections at 1-866-427-4747.
The questions collected are completely anonymous. The answers come from professionals and are provided for informational purposes only and do not constitute medical advice and are not a substitute for professional mental health care. By submitting your question, you are agreeing to let South Seattle Emerald use it, in part or in full, and it may be edited for length and/or clarity.
