Joy Oliver

I hold a Masters of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been licensed to practice in the State of Washington since 1998.


I have experience working with individuals, couples, adolescents and children as well as with families. I have organized anger management groups for adults and adolescents as well as groups for parenting.

Areas of Specialty

My primary focus of practice is with families and couples. I also work with individuals who are struggling with relationship problems, depression and anxiety. I understand that people have to deal with many different kinds of stress leading to difficulties in their personal lives as well as in their relationships. I am skilled at working with clients in helping them to find a healthier, more successful life.


You will experience a safe, non-judgmental environment where feelings can be expressed and bond of trust established. I am a family systems therapist and approach therapy with a view of family of origin issues. The modalities I practice from are an integration of Bowen Family Systems Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Gottman Couples Therapy.

Length of Therapy

Only the client knows when it is time to stop therapy. I trust the individual to tell me when that time happens.


My fees are $100 per hour for individuals and couples. I charge $130 per hour for family sessions. I offer a limited number of sliding fees for those with less income.
