Brenda Valenzuela Fortune
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Washington. I received the Master of Arts degree in Psychology (Marriage and Family Therapy) from Chapman University in 2006 and Doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision from Regent University in 2012.
I have had significant experience working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Aside from private practice, I have worked in various settings including community mental health, church, school, community college, and both private and government agencies. I specialize in working with older teens and adults who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, attachment and adjustment issues, domestic violence, grief and loss, and parenting difficulties.
My passion is helping individuals, couples and families achieve emotional wholeness so that they can enjoy healthy and satisfying relationships. I draw from a variety of approaches, particularly from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Bowenian Family Systems Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy. As a member of the AsianAmerican community, I am keenly aware of the issues that immigrant families often experience, and am committed to helping them gain insight and master the skills they need to thrive. In addition to English, I speak Tagalog and Ilocano fluently.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the State of Washington. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from College of the Holy Cross in Worchester, Massachusetts in 1982. In 1987, I obtained the Master of Social Work degree, with a concentration in Clinical Psychology, from Columbia University in New York.
My areas of expertise include adolescent psychotherapy, marriage and family counseling, and chemical dependency issues. I have worked in the field of mental health and particularly with adolescents since 1982 in a wide variety of settings including outpatient private practice, group homes, residential treatment, hospital, and day treatment facilities.
I have over 7 years of psychiatric experience working with adults in outpatient and inpatient settings, and I believe it is a tremendous privilege to provide psychiatric care. I believe in an integrated approach to psychiatry that centers your experience and values. I strive to provide inclusive, culturally competent, trauma-informed care, and I have a particular interest in LGBTQ+ mental health.
I aim to work within Health at Every Size principles and practices. I believe in evidence-based prescribing and frequently work to safely deprescribe when appropriate. I work with adults age 18 and above.
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in both Washington and California. I have have worked in the field of mental health and counseling for over thirty years, and I have been a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy since 1990. In 1990 I earned a Master of Arts degree in Psychology with an Emphasis in Behavioral Medicine (including stress management, hypnosis and biofeedback) from the University of the Pacific, Stockton, California. A Master of Arts degree in Marital and Family Counseling was earned from the University of San Francisco in 1993, and a Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology was earned from the University of San Francisco in 2005.
My counseling and clinical training were conducted in several settings, including the Children’s Health Council, an affiliate agency of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California (1997 – 1998). I completed a year long American Psychological Association (A.P.A.) Accredited Pre-Doctoral Internship in 2000. This program was a consortium between Central Lousiana State Hospital and Pineville Developmental Center, both in Pineville, Louisiana.
I mainly use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems Theory, in which the relationships between people are the primary focus. I also draw from Narrative Therapy / Solution Focused Therapy and Reality Therapy / Choice Theory and other approaches to therapy. In Family Systems work, the relationships between people are the primary focus with the goal of improving the functioning of the family (or couple / group) or “system” as a whole. Emphasis is placed on each individual taking responsibility for his or her own actions, reducing blame and on all joining together to confront and solve the problems that have prevented optimal functioning.
I work with individuals, couples, families and groups, and with people of all ages, including children as young as four years of age (working with their parents, as well) to older adults. I especially enjoy helping those facing “life transitions” (such as deciding on a career), stress management / “burn out”, adoption and relationship issues, as well as treating people who are experiencing symptoms of mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder, etc.), anxiety disorders (including panic attacks). I utilize biofeedback as a learning tool, as well as offering hypnosis as an adjunct to talk therapy. I believe that therapy must be tailored to the individual, so I work to help you find the answers that are the right fit for you.

I have specialized training in Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for adolescents, and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
I have been a marriage and family instructor offering both individual and group learning opportunities for couples and parents to improve their interpersonal relationships. My experience in mediation has provided many years of experience in communication and conflict resolution skills. This experience is often used to help people move from anger to resolution.
I have a pragmatic orientation that focuses upon examining thoughts, beliefs, and how they influence behavior. By understanding, challenging, and being aware of our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings, one can respond differently and use those newly found skills to better manage life challenges.
I enjoy working with children and adults to address problems with adjustment, depression, anxiety, mood and emotional regulation, and behavioral problems. I believe that families are the foundation of our society, and helping families and individuals to find meaning and to work through their challenges is my focus.

Seeking counseling can be one of the hardest choices a person makes, but it is also one of the bravest decisions. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, accepting, and genuine space to talk and help my client learn to live their best life. Every person I see has unique vulnerabilities, experiences, and hidden personal strengths. In a world full of constant change, it is easy to get overwhelmed and feel lost. I hope to help individuals with anxiety, depression, and life stressors rediscover who they are and live in the present without constant fear of the future and reliving their past. When coming to see me there will be no judgment on a client’s past, choices, or beliefs. Counseling should be a place where you can be yourself without feeling judged. I understand views and ideas across the spectrum and understand the diverse network of how culture, religion, age, and race can play into these beliefs.
I work with children, teens, and young adults. I have experience working with clients who have anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, addiction, family issues, and survivors of sexual assault. I enjoy working with a variety of clients from all walks of life, including but not limited to, those in the LGBTQ+ community, all sexual orientations, and all gender orientations.
I use a range of therapeutic models and interventions in order to serve my clients such as CBT, psychoeducation, ACT, and EFT. My counseling approach is very simple. I follow a person-centered therapy and humanistic therapy approach. I work with the client to help heal the body, mind, and spirit.
I have experience working in drug and alcohol treatment facilities, Emergency Room and ICU medical assistant, Court/Legal Advocate, and Sexual Assault therapist in Special Assault Unit (SAU). My work history shines a light on my passion to help individuals through some of their toughest times in life and my compassion to be there to support them through the emotional challenges that they bring.

However, in general, I follow an approach that focuses on your history of personal development and relationships as a way of understanding your current situation, and this helps to develop strategies for supporting you in the achievement of your goals.
