Seanna Mahaney, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, provides counseling services to individuals and families of all ages in the Vancouver, WA- Portland Metro area.
SShe especially enjoys working with new moms (and parents) navigating the adjustment to parenthood and has completed the Maternal Mental Health Certificate course through Postpartum Support International and 2020 Mom. She also has training working with young children, infants and toddlers, and is certified in Child-Parent Psychotherapy, a treatment designed to strengthen the connection between young children and their caregivers after traumatic events.
Seanna received her counseling degree from Pacific University. She has previously worked as a therapist in community mental health settings, provided school and home-based therapy services, and has also been a mental health consultant for early learning programs in the area.
Seanna’s approach is integrative and draws on multiple theories and treatment techniques. Attachment theory and trauma-informed treatments often provide the foundation for therapy. Other techniques used in therapy could be cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, narrative, or mindfulness tools. When working with children, play therapy is often utilized. Parent coaching is also an option used to help supplement family therapy sessions as needed.
Outside of work, Seanna enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing with her kids, being outside, yoga, and reading.
My Approach & Philosophy
Each individual has a unique story to share and a unique path to healing. I believe that you are the expert of your own life, and helping people navigate struggles, share their stories, and develop strong relationships with themselves and their loved ones is a gift that I am grateful to experience.
I believe that therapy is a collaborative relationship and that it is essential that you feel safe and heard. I work hard to listen without judgment; my style is compassionate, calm, and direct. I believe in the power of play and laughter in the healing process. Because mental health is strongly connected to physical and spiritual health, I hope to guide individuals to become healthier in many aspects of their lives.
Issues surrounding children, parenthood, perinatal, and postpartum depression/anxiety hold a special place in my heart. Parenthood is both an amazing gift and also a source of challenges or mixed emotions. I strive to help all individuals connect with one another and become more resilient. My goal is for you to leave therapy feeling hopeful and empowered in your ability to cope with future challenges that may arise.
