“I believe that I was called to transition to become a professional mental health counselor. I continue increasing my insights and understanding of human suffering and pain as well as resilience, including my own. I feel honored to listen to the stories of my clients in trustful and respectful relationships, to assist them to recognize their own strength and resilience. I feel privileged to work with my clients in their journeys to facilitate healing, to grow to their full potential, and to find joy and hope again.” – Hiromi Gerety

Hiromi will be accepting NEW clients in January.


Hiromi works with adults and couples in our Bothell and Redmond offices.  She is bilingual in English & Japanese and experienced with diverse populations in clinical and college setting.
