I am a LGBTQA+ competent therapist who uses a strength-based, person centered, and trauma-informed approach to counseling. I work to create a supportive environment and adapt my practice to each individual to help them achieve their goals.

I believe the best insight comes from within, you are the expert of your life. Let me help guide you through the confusion and pain that may arise along the way. Together we will find the tools and techniques that you can carry with you after our time together.


About My Practice

I came into this work experiencing my own mental health struggles throughout life. I want to help others realize their potential and experience growth in whatever form that comes to be for them. My goal is to meet you where you're at and to help you find the path that leads to where you want to go.

I use an eclectic style pulling form many different theories of counseling such as: Humanistic, Cognitive, Behavioral, Psychoanalytic, and Systemic. I use techniques that help you build the skills you need be successful and process through your emotions.

I have been in this field since 2017. I have experiences working with children, teens and adults, in individual and family settings. I have worked with individuals transitioning, individuals with suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, and trauma.

About Me

Hi! My name is Melissa Good. I completed my Master of Arts in Counseling at Saint Martin's University and my BA with a minor in gender studies at University or Washington. I am a mom of 2 young adult boys. I know first hand the struggles of single parenting. I have experience supporting one of my sons as he went through gender transition and watched as he grew into the amazing man he was always meant to be. My youngest is in high school and we have experienced all the challenges of attending school virtually during the pandemic. What a time!

I enjoy getting out into nature whenever possible. I find the trees bring me peace and heal my soul. I love animals and have 2 dogs, 2 cats, an axolotl, and other fish. At the end of the day you can usually find me decompressing with a good movie or book.
