Elaine Cheung

Therapist, Masters

Elaine Cheung has been practicing consistently since receiving her Master of Social Welfare from the University of Kansas in 2003. She has varied experiences in different settings including community mental health, hospital-based outpatient care, in home family therapy, and private practice. She has developed expertise in a wide variety of evidence-based therapies, including exposure and response prevention for OCD, prolonged exposure, EMDR, trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy (TF-CBT) for PTSD, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), as well as CBT.  She received specialized training for OCD through the International OCD Foundation and currently serves as the Secretary on the Washington State OCD Board. Elaine has also received extensive training in Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy.  Elaine creates an individual treatment plan with each client based on science and evidence-based treatment.

Elaine works with people from across the lifespan ranging from age 10 to adults. She enjoys empowering clients to feel mastery over their struggles with OCD, anxiety, mood, emotion regulation and interpersonal difficulties. Elaine believes strongly in establishing a strong, open, collaborative relationship with all clients, and she comes from a strengths-perspective background.

“I have taken my daughter to 4 or 5 therapists and this is the first time I have seen her change and grow and finally have a sense of peace.  Dan and Elaine have created a place of peace and nonjudgment so that the parents and kids can feel safe.”
