About Laurel Marshall

Education and Training

I began my career in the Mental Health field in the mid 1990s by completing a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of Washington. After working in the Human Services field for many years, I earned a Masters of Arts Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Antioch University in Seattle. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples from the International Centre for Emotionally Focused Therapy, and for Individuals from the Emotional Focused Therapy Clinic in Toronto Canada.  I also continue training an AEDP which is an Attachment and Somatic based intervention for anxiety, depression and developmental trauma. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in the state of Washington and Oregon.

Experience

I have been in private practice since 2010 working with individuals, couples and families. I have been in the Human Services/Mental Health field for 20 years in a number of settings that include the Farestart Work Training Program working with the homeless population as a life skills counselor, Renton Youth and Family Services as a case manager/mental health counselor serving children, youth and families in crisis, the Antioch Community Counseling Clinic as a psychotherapist for adults with mild and severe mental health issues, and the Returning Veterans Project as a psychotherapist for the Veteran population returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. I bring a diverse perspective to my work and am committed to deepening my understanding of the human experience. I believe that solid training, a breadth of experience, and one’s commitment to one’s personal growth are essential ingredients to being a skillful, mature therapist.
