Albert Billings Counseling
Albert Billings, MA, LMHCA
Welcome! I am Albert Billings (he/him), a therapist in the Seattle area. I serve clients in Seattle and Washington State through telehealth sessions and limited in-person sessions in West Seattle.
I focus on positive growth and change to help you live your best life. I believe we have a natural urge towards wholeness, even at our lowest points or when we're the most troubled. I want to work with you to help find and foster that wholeness. This involves talking and processing where you can feel deeply heard and understood in a warm and caring space.
I am trained in:
Mindfulness - a way of developing awareness of one’s internal states and surroundings in the present moment that can help to avoid habitual thoughts and responses without judging or reacting to them.
Internal Family Systems (IFS) - a therapeutic model that works to bring our many parts into balance through an internal dialogue.
Attachment Repair - a body of techniques to work on healing attachment wounds and moving people towards secure attachments in relationships.
Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy (PAP) - the use of psychedelic substances, such as ketamine, to promote change and healing, as well as the preparatory work for this use and the integration of the experiences following it.
One focus of my practice is working with members of the technology industry as an extension of my own 29 year tech career. I also have a strong connection with folks labeled "neurodivergent," such as those with ADHD and Autism. I also work closely with other communities who are often marginalized, whether they are LGBTQIA+, involved in polyamory and ethical non-monogamy, or are spiritually outside of the mainstream. I have worked with active duty soldiers, veterans, and their families through time spent at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM).
