Hello. I am Marybeth Markham, a Licensed Mental Health Therapist (License LH60558821) specializing in individual, couples and family therapy. I have a private practice in Spokane, WA. At this time, I am not accepting new clients.
My commitment to working in social services began in 1986, following the death of my brother. Since then, I have served people of all ages, abilities and economic levels. I have a strong commitment to making treatment accessible to adults seeking to improve their functioning and relationships. This includes offering an inviting, safe, and confidential setting to do the healing work and growth my clients desire.
I believe every person is unique and therefore needs an individually-tailored therapy approach that fits their needs.
I pride myself on being more than just someone to listen, but someone to help you look at things a different way.
It all starts with a healthy mind, and a fresh perspective. From there, focusing on your well-being, mental and emotional health, and physical wellness comes into play like never before. You’re taking the first steps on a journey, but you’re not taking them alone.
Whatever obstacles and struggles someone may be going through in life, I consider it a privilege to help them deal with. I understand that the patients I see are entrusting me to give them the right resources to guide them down a new path, with a new perspective, so they can achieve their own goals. With a healthy balance of listening, guiding, and even learning, I take pride in using my own experience and resources to help people really start off on the right foot on that path. Whether you, or someone you know struggles with something like depression, anxiety, grief, or simply wants a different outlook on their life, it’s something to work through together.
I received a BLS from Whitworth University, graduating summa cum laude. I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from LIOS Graduate College.
I completed the Core Therapist training for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. This training is a joint project of The Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs and Washington State Office of Crime Victims. I received training from the Medical University of South Carolina in TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy) and using TF-CBT for Childhood Traumatic Grief. These evidence based practices are recognized as being among the most effective interventions for children who have significant psychological symptoms related to trauma exposures. I also received training in CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) through the Medical University of South Carolina and Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy to enable me to work with veterans and their families.
