Anthony Kagochi, MA, LMHC

Hello and welcome!

My name is Anthony Kagochi, since 2008 I’ve been helping people navigate life’s challenges, starting at the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehab Center, Forensic Manager at Greater Lakes Mental Health, and Program Manager at Recovery Cafe. I have been a master’s level Licensed Mental Health Counselor since 2014. I’ve had the honor of supporting individuals, couples, and families through various life stages and issues, each with their unique stories and journeys. I help clients find relief and coping skills for their reported issues, with a trauma-informed approach that both respects, and safely addresses clients' traumas. There’s nothing quite like seeing a client reach their therapy goals and take control of their life. Those moments when the “light turns on” and they feel empowered, those moments are what makes this work so fulfilling for me.

About my Therapy

Inspiration and Philosophy: My journey to becoming a therapist was inspired by my own struggles and the incredible support I received when I needed it most. I believe everyone can cope, change, and thrive with the right support. This can come from various sources like family, friends, education, and spirituality. Our world can be overwhelming, but having a space to reflect on your thoughts and feelings without judgment can make all the difference.

 

Therapeutic Approach: My approach involves meeting you exactly where you are in life, without being prescriptive about how therapy should go. I focus on building rapport while gaining an understanding of your presenting issues from your perspective. My style is informal and relational, adapting to the language and style you are most comfortable with. I create a non-judgmental space where all topics and emotions are welcome. I hold you in the highest positive regard, acting as a passenger in your vehicle of life, pointing out patterns, behaviors, and contradictions while encouraging change.

Therapeutic Techniques and Experience: I specialize in a range of therapeutic techniques to best meet your needs, including Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), strength-centered therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I have extensive experience in crisis intervention, substance use interventions, cultural competency, and facilitating support and educational groups. I keep my therapeutic methods fresh and effective by taking annual trainings, attending workshops, and reading up on the latest research. I’ve also worked with diverse groups like the Indian Health Board, Tulalip Tribes, Asian Counseling Services, and LGBTQIA+ communities. This combination of ongoing learning and real-world experience helps me provide the best support and care to my clients.
 

Services and Fees

Therapy Services: I offer a variety of therapy services, including individual, couples, family, and group therapy. I see adults and youth aged 13 and up. My approach is all about meeting you where you are in life, without any preconceived notions. I focus on building a strong, trusting relationship where you feel comfortable and understood. Together, we’ll explore patterns, behaviors, and contradictions to encourage positive change in a non-judgmental space. Our world has gotten smaller in a lot of ways but the demands and distractions continue to put pressure on all of us as individuals. When an individual or couple is able to hear their own thoughts, feelings and behaviors reflected back to them in a neutral non-judgmental fashion they will be able to have a better understanding of themselves and thus be able to address and or cope with their issues. 

Consultation and First Session: I offer a 15-minute free consultation to help you decide if I’m the right fit for you. During our first session, we’ll get to know each other, gather background information, and set some initial goals to ensure you feel comfortable and ready to move forward.


Fees: The fee for the initial session is $150 for individual therapy, with $140 for subsequent sessions, and $170 for couples with $160 for subsequent sessions. I offer sliding scale fees on a case-by-case basis to ensure everyone can access the support they need.

 

Availability: My office hours are:
•    Monday: 12 PM - 5 PM
•    Tuesday: 10 AM - 7 PM
•    Wednesday: 11 AM - 7 PM
•    Thursday: 10 AM - 7 PM
•    Friday: 11 AM - 3 PM 


I’m here to support you on your journey. Let’s work together to find your path to a better, more fulfilling life. Feel free to reach out for that initial consultation – I look forward to meeting you!
