Our Therapists

Jennifer Keyte

About Jennifer
Despite our best planning, life is unknowable and difficulties are inevitable. The therapeutic process offers not only support while navigating challenging situations, but also, the opportunity to explore our innermost terrain to the outer, more cultural and transgenerational factors that affect us. This introspective process can be overwhelming at times, and it is helpful to have a trusted therapist to guide you and offer alternative perspectives. I have experienced and witnessed this transformative journey and deeply believe in the power of this work.
More About Jennifer

My therapeutic approach is warm and collaborative and cares for the whole person. Each of us has a unique life story that shapes us. I work to understand the impact of past and current experience and tailor my care to the individual. My work utilizes psychodynamic and systemic approaches with a focus on early attachments and current behavior patterns. It is important to explore how systems of oppression and privilege affect our daily lives. I also use DBT and CBT when appropriate. I am currently exploring Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems.

I enjoy working with adults and adolescents who are coping with anxiety and depression, health conditions and chronic illness, experiencing grief and loss, navigating life transitions, family relationships, panic disorder, parenting, and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. I particularly enjoy engaging in identity work with clients exploring ideas surrounding sexuality, gender and culture.

I grew up near the Olympic Peninsula and had my first taste of supporting others when I was elected to be a Peer Counselor in my highschool by my classmates. I then moved to Seattle and earned my Bachelors in Psychology at the University of Washington. I obtained my Masters in Psychology from Antioch University, which included an extensive internship working with a variety of clients at Sound Mental Health. I opened my private practice in 2008. I am dedicated to learning and have taken many training courses, including completing a 100 hour course in Clinical Theory and Practice. I am an approved supervisor in Washington state.

My fee is $165 per 50 minute session and I am in network with many types of insurance, including Premera, Regence, First Choice, and United. Most insurance plans offer out of network benefits as well, and I am able to provide you with a superbill to provide to your insurance for reimbursement.

About Maria
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate I work with teens, adults, couples and families from a systemic and relational approach. In session, I collaborate with clients to identify areas of distress and explore the impacts of culture, family development, and interpersonal relationships. My work is to bear witness to my client’s process and honor both where they are and their goals for therapy, while providing warmth, humor, and connection. I have a special interest in working with parents, teens, and women who have ADHD. I aim to provide care that honors my client’s diverse backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender expressions.

Maria Tarasova
“To be human is to have blind spots. No matter how much we delve into the interior realms, there will always be places we cannot see ourselves. This is why the most honest and courageous question we can ask a trusted loved one is “what am I not seeing?” And when the blind spots are illuminated, we sing a song of gratitude that another veil of illusion and mis-seeing has been lifted.”
