About the Therapist

Josh Stabbert, MA, LMHC

My curiosity of people and the human experience on this planet started early during my own journey in therapy. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Washington. During my time as a college student I worked as a research assistant studying the impact of mindfulness on addictive behaviors. This is where my love for psychology as well as research flourished.

After graduating I worked in areas of research both in a clinical setting as well as user research (UX) working to help make technology more accessible for those experiencing mobility and sight challenges.

I had a desire for many years to work with individuals in counseling and went on to earn my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at Bastyr University. Bastyr provided an environment to train as a therapist from a holistic, whole-person lens. I completed my internship working with children, teens and young adults. I supported children and adolescents experiencing depression, anxiety, family issues, and early childhood trauma. After graduating from Bastyr I worked with adults in a community health setting supporting folks navigating a variety of challenges in their lives.

I have since transitioned to private practice where my focus is working with teens, adults, chronic pain and those with disabilities dealing with a variety of challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma, relational challenges and the stressors that can come along with having a disability. My approach in private practice is primarily from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy lens. I named my practice Propel Counseling as I believe that given a safe and supportive environment to explore what is most important to us, we will naturally go in the direction we are drawn to.

During my free time, I enjoy listening to podcasts, skiing, biking, playing with my dog Finn and connecting with others as well as exploring new food spots around town. 
 
I look forward to working with you. Please contact me and I would be happy to answer any questions and help you get started.
