King Health Associates
Comprehensive Behavioral Health Center
King Health Associates is a comprehensive behavioral health center based in Bellingham, Washington. Our team of licensed mental health professionals provide a wide range of licensed mental health counseling and therapy services, regular clinician-taught therapeutic workshops, and multiple clinician-led support groups. Our services also include complimentary holistic treatments, such as Acupuncture, Hypnotherapy and Massage Therapy, with a mental health focus. Our main offices are located in Bellingham, in the Bellwether Gate building, overlooking the beautiful Bellingham marina, bay and scenic San Juan Islands.
The center was founded in 2008 as a single clinician private practice and has evolved over the years, through serving the needs of our clients, into a thriving muti-clinician, muti-discipline center. We evolve to serve our clients and adapt to the ever changing needs of those clients, and whether providing the ease of online scheduling, or the convenience of video-session options for those who are housebound, we strive to provide a truly healing experience.
Attention To Detail
We consider our client's needs also in the design of our suites, each with a focused intention of creating a safe and comfortable space in which to undertake therapeutic healing work. From the artwork on the walls, to the warm inviting fireplace, to the soft comforting material of the sofas, every detail is evaluated with our client's care in mind.
Our founder and clinical director, Karen King, is a practicing therapist within the center and also supervises and regularly reviews all of our clinicians to ensure a high standard of treatment for our clients. Karen makes sure that each clinician we bring on staff has expertise on their field and is up-to-date on the latest modalities and research. Unlike many of the local therapy groups (which are often simply a marketing tool for solitary practitioners), our clinicians are all employees that consult with each other on client cases to ensure the best and broadest treatment options.
Our long-term plan is to continue to provide the very best service to our clients, but we are not resting on the laurels of our successes. We are always listening to feedback from our clients, reading the latest in research, and we will continue to humbly adapt and improve, refining what works in the best interests of our clients and removing what doesn't.
We Welcome You
We look forward to working with our wonderful clients and providing health services to our community, but we also welcome you and invite you to become one of our clients if you have not already. Mental health is exactly that, your health, your vitality, your birthright, and no one should have to suffer in silence. Mental health used to come with a stigma that prevented many people from being helped, but times have changed and now it is recognized as an important area of your health. Just as you pay attention to what you eat, or make sure you get regular exercise, so too mental health has become preventative in many ways. Every living being has some form of issues. We are not static and unchanging. Our modern daily lives with its high levels of stress and complexity can often take an emotional toll and that stress can lead to not just lack of relationship problems and physical health issues. Regular therapy can help relieve and resolve emotional stress and improve your life situation and enhance your relationships, We welcome you to a healthier and happier life.
