My name is Makinie Fortino and I am a Licensed Relationship Therapist (LMFT). I identify as a Systemic and Psychospiritual Therapist, meaning that when we work together, I’m going to analyze people, places and societal influences, and can also work guide you through spiritual healing (if you would like).

My approach to counseling in is one of collaboration. My goal through working together is to help you understand how your circumstances are shaped by past and present relationships, cultural and inter-generational values. I will hold space for you with empathetic curiosity.

I specialize in tailoring each session to individual needs and trauma-informed care, acknowledging that some behaviors and thoughts are guided by events which one might not have been prepared to experience. There are many moments in live and people who influence our thoughts and feelings, and each should be explored carefully.

Sessions with me are compassionate, straightforward, thought-provoking,
and relaxed with just a touch of humor.

I provide support through Video Psychotherapy using evidence-based practices to help you feel more self-aware and hopeful for the next step in life.

About Spiritual Coaching: While Therapy is limited to Washington State, I also offer the option of Spiritual Coaching to those who are beginning their journey and are wanting some guidance and feedback along the way.
