Place to Play
In 2005, Carey Goldenberg, the former CEO of Seattle Therapy Network, opened a small occupational therapy practice called Giant Steps Children's Therapy with just 8 clients and a dream to leave behind the constraints of both the educational and traditional medical settings.
In 2009, Seattle Therapy Network was born to create a collaborative, fun, and welcoming space for multiple disciplines to share space and resources. This would be a place families could access complementary services in one shared space.
Since then, Seattle Therapy Network has expanded its team, currently serves over 200 clients who feel like family, and has multiple community partners throughout Seattle. And, we’re still growing!
Togetherness: Being heard and understood is important in relationships and our sense of being. Communication through our verbal words, written words, and non-verbal expression is crucial to the therapeutic process, connections between people, and contributes to life satisfaction.
Goodness: Each person’s goodness and value is seen at Seattle Therapy Network. We strive to see the strengths in others. We act as the good humans we are and treat others with dignity, respect, and communicate that all people are valuable to our community.

Equity: We acknowledge that in healthcare a discrepancy exists in access to care as well as the quality of it. Our team is committed to providing the best quality health care and that it is accessible for all people, of all abilities, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, and socio-economic levels.
Credibility: Our team of therapists believes that our services are distinct and beneficial based on current research, ongoing learning, experience, and innovations. We understand that our credibility is embedded into our treatment outcomes and work to evaluate the effectiveness of your services.
Family-Centered: We value that people need each other and depend on each other. We value that this is true not only of children and families but of our office family as well. We know that we are stronger as an organization when we support, learn, and celebrate each other. We are more effective when we align and work together with clients and each other.
Fun: Our team values play, playfulness, and working towards goals in a fun way. As a staff we enjoy a fun outlook on our professional roles.
