Hello, I'm Myra Flor Arpin. I am a Filipinx-American therapist for individuals in Washington State.
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in Shoreline, WA
Supervised by Rachel Elder, LMHC
I have 10 years of working with children ages 11-18. I have 5 years of experience as a school-based counselor in middle school working with children with recent ADHD diagnoses, gender and sexual identity support, parenting adolescents, transitioning to middle school, peer/social conflict, depression, and anxiety.
With my experience as a school-based counselor, I have a unique vantage point in supporting parents during the transition their kids make into adolescence. I often hear, "I just don't recognize my child anymore." I can work with parents to better understand adolescent behavior and how to reconnect with your child during these years. I may also offer parenting support groups for parents to meet others who may be experiencing similar struggles.
I love working with those who identify as women on various issues including: deciding to have children or being child-free, assertiveness skills in the workplace or in relationships, processing systemic racism, family of origin concerns, and more.
