Two locationsBelltown and Downtown/Pioneer Square 

I am currently offering ONLINE counseling via (HIPAA compliant) TELEHEALTH


I’m Kristene Kaim, a licensed counselor and psychotherapist in Seattle. Know that therapy is for anyone. It is a place to talk about how thoughts and feelings affect sense of self, environment and relationships. We all need a place to do that and reflect on who we are and what we’re doing here, in the present moment, in order to actualize our goals. IMG_4531

I am a psychotherapist working in Belltown/South Lake Union and Downtown/Pioneer Square. I specialize in anxiety and mood disorders. I work in partnership with a wide array of clients who range from needing a place to explore their thoughts, to focused therapy on a specific area of distress.  I also have a special interest and have much experience working with folks with intellectual and developmental disabilities. LGBTQ+ and relationship issues  are another strong suit.

My approach is eclectic with training in existentialism, cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive, and solution focused therapy. I also use metaphor and art in therapy. I believe that the interaction between client and therapist will naturally lead to a therapeutic style that will yield healing and meaningful emotional experiences.

I started doing therapy in 2010 when I worked in Chennai, India at a mental health facility. Since, I have worked in community mental health clinics and private practice settings.

I offer 50 minute sessions in my practice space in Belltown/South Lake Union and Pioneer Square. I approach my work with individuals from the strengths perspective, looking first for what is going well in life and building from there.
