Joel Harrison | Therapist in Redmond, WA

Joel is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate providing help to adults, and young adults in and around Redmond, WA. 


A word from Joel…

Often, our past informs our present, and it is easy to get stuck in loops of our own suffering. This often presents itself by means of depression, addiction, anxiety, or many other ways we attempt to cope with our inner and external worlds. I strongly believe in the transformative power of human connection and the therapeutic relationship. Through the connection we cultivate, a safe space where we can explore the present moment, your story, and how they relate becomes possible. 


I work from an existential and psychodynamic framework, meaning that I am deeply committed to finding purpose and meaning in one’s life through a mixture of therapeutic modalities. I believe that as human beings we are always striving to do the best of our abilities. When we are free to experience inspiration, creativity, and play, we find our purpose, and our meaning. Often to find these spaces, we must engage our hurts, our shame, our anger, and our pain. For myself and my clients, I lean into the question of what it means to exist as a human being, fully flourishing in life.
