Elizabeth A. Bruno

Counselor, LMHC

I view myself as a strength-based Clinical Therapist whose goal is to walk with you through therapy to increase your own self-warmth, hope, insight and healing. I believe that addiction or mental health issues are just a small piece of the multi-faceted jigsaw puzzle of who you are. I graduated with both my BS and MA from Santa Clara University, where my basketball jersey was retired for continuing to hold the Men and Women's Rebounding Record. I believe that athletics were the genesis of my relentless positivity, embracement of strengths, and belief in the perseverance of the human heart.

I have a background working with clients experiencing diverse issues including anxiety, depression, PTSD and trauma, addiction, suicidality, couples and family therapy, life transitions and much more. My office is conveniently located in downtown Kirkland.

I utilize a cognitive restructuring approach turning negative self-talk into empowering positive self-talk to help build confidence and overcome fears. I include tools such as mindfulness and distress tolerance to promote emotional stability and personal growth. My goal is to be a compassionate, humanistic therapist who will hold your heart gently. On a personal note, I have two grown sons and one canine daughter. I look forward to hearing from you!
