Professional and Life Training
Erik Mildes is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a Master’s degree in counseling from Mars Hill Graduate School and a private practice, Greenlake Counseling, in the Greenlake community of North Seattle.
Erik has successfully worked with students, adults and children of many ages. His experience as a counselor began with youth ministry working with the children and families of the Fairview Christian Church youth ministry and continued through time spent at Seattle Pacific University as a counselor in the Student Counseling Center. Through this time Erik has also taken up working with a family in the community in the care of their children for both short and extended periods of time.
Erik has found faith and family to be an integral part of his decision-making, curiosity, and professional growth. He believes strongly in personal choice and feels that a person can redefine who s/he is at any point in life. Erik relies primarily on mental health concepts within clinical settings. However, his diverse training allows clients to bring religion into the therapeutic relationship if desired. Erik's colleagues note that he displays unconditional acceptance, energy, and insight to his clients. He helps people recognize that life is a continuum of stabilization and transformation with history, connection, hope, and assessment being critical to understanding personal experience.
In his free time Erik is an avid mountain biker, snowboarder and reader. He enjoys spending time with his wife and friends in both leisure and adventures on a grand scale.
I wanted to just take a moment to thank you for the work you've been doing with me. What a tremendous help you've been! I've learned so much about myself, my past, and my Father in heaven. Today in particular was so eye opening. The realizations I had about the outcome of this overwhelming week, my new found confidence, and the faithfulness of the Lord have given me a new perspective. What an incredible shift I've experienced! I'm still soaking it all in, but I feel such immense relief! A weight has been lifted and I finally feel able to stand in confidence knowing that Jesus is by my side.
For the first time in a long time, I have joy. I honestly can't remember the last time I felt so filled with joy!
