Solomon Chan, MA, LMHC

Therapist | LMHC Approved Supervisor | Cyclist & Runner

Solomon is passionate about accompanying people in their journey toward understanding and living out their unique narratives. Solomon’s experience as a therapist working in nonprofits, psychiatric hospitals, academic settings, and community outreach agencies has deepened his integrative, psychodynamic approach to counseling. Solomon invites and supports an exploration of the conscious (what we are aware of) and unconscious mind (what we are not aware of), how that dynamic shows up in one’s life, and how we may find relief for the journey.

He believes that we become who we are, form our identities, and live out our stories in the context of relationship. The nuances of our relationships reveal information about our core struggles; and the relationship that occurs in therapy is a way to live out, encounter, understand, and make changes. Just as we are formed in relationship, healing occurs in the context of relationship. Solomon views therapy as an invitation to explore and live out the unlived parts of our lives in order to more fully embrace a freer, fuller, and more integrated experience of work, play, and love.

Solomon has a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology. His theories and modalities pull from: relational psychology, object relations, interpersonal dynamics, intercultural and cross-cultural counseling, attachment theories, and narrative therapy.

At the Shelterwood Collective, Solomon offers weekly individual therapy sessions for adolescents and adults.
