Viola Schrantz MS, LMHC, is a mental health counselor licensed in the state of Washington, LH61130702. I provide evidence-based mental health services for individuals ages 12 and up.

Degrees and Training

I hold a BA in Psychology and a BA in Sociology with honors from Ashford University (now University of Arizona). I hold an MA in Mental Health Counseling with honors from Capella University. I have certificates in peer counseling, WISe (wraparound with intensive services), trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), gender affirming and queer care, and Telehealth services. Certificates and continued education are ongoing and this will be updated regularly.

Clinical Approaches

My therapeutic philosophy is to hear, see, and validate clients’ experiences and emotions. In support, I identify the whole person; I use evidence-based approaches supporting each unique individual. Building off the person-centered approach, therapy is designed to fit mental health and personal needs. I specialize in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), psychodynamic, and solution-focused therapies that support individualized care and treatment.
