Gretchen Stockman

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) providing counseling and therapeutic intervention from a Biblical perspective.  I have two offices, one in Lakewood and one in Puyallup, Washington. I work with adults, adolescents, couples, families, and groups. My focus areas are motivated from life experiences that I have dealt with personally or in relationship

I don't subscribe to a one-size-fits-all approach to counseling.  Each person’s path is unique, and solutions to stressed relationships and life’s difficulties must be tailor-made. Concepts, interventions, and “gold nuggets” from Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Values-Based, Narrative, Family Systems, and other therapies are employed when helpful and harmonious with God’s thoughts and ways as revealed in Scripture.

My goal is to help clients to learn about themselves, grow, and put together their own emotional and mental health toolboxes so they can overcome present challenges and any future curve balls in life.  I provide a safe and supportive place for people to let down their hair and be vulnerable.  For some people, it takes a lot of courage to allow themselves to let someone else really "see" them , and permit access into the most painful and frustrating places in their lives. I am patient and gentle, and take as long as needed to build rapport and trust with each person.  Facing difficulties in life can be become opportunities for tremendous change and growth.

Although I work with depression, anxiety, and a wide variety of life challenges, my specialties are marriage counseling, divorce prevention and divorce recovery, eating disorders, substance abuse and other addictions, problems faced in blended families, surviving domestic abuse, life-coaching and spiritual development.  These specialties are motivated by life experiences that I have dealt with personally or in relationship with a loved one, therefore I experience satisfaction and an enormous sense of purpose in assisting those struggling with similar issues.  

My B.S. is in Health and Lifestyle Promotion from Central Washington University and my MA in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy is from Chapman University. I completed an 8 month practicum at the Army Substance Abuse Program at Ft. Lewis, Washington which involved working with active duty military personnel struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. 

I have over eighteen years’ experience working as a Registered Counselor in the State of Washington, focusing primarily on young girls and women struggling with eating disorders and other addictions.  Currently, I work with this and other areas of expertise, providing counseling and therapeutic intervention from a Biblical perspective.

Office hours: Monday through Thursday, including some evening appointments
