Welcome to Family and Teen Counseling

There are times when you may not want to share private matters with your friends and family. Some topics might be too personal, too difficult, too complex, or you may simply want to avoid any of your issues becoming a burden to others. During these times, you may really want to talk with somebody but you’re unsure who. What if you had a trusted, objective, non-judgmental, and supportive trained professional who could come along your side as you work through these tough times?

Family and Teen Counseling, Inc. (FTC) was founded because Liana Gibson wanted to create a healing resource for adolescent girls and their families. Although prior to starting FTC, Liana had a successful career in business working with companies such as Microsoft and Xerox, but she felt empty inside. Though she was successful, it didn’t bring her any fulfillment so she decided to make a major career change to pursue her heart and dream of helping people through therapy. After obtaining a Master’s of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Seattle Pacific University (SPU), she worked with children, teens, and families at Bellevue Youth Eastside Services for a few years. Liana started FTC in 2011 to meet the needs of those in the Eastside area.

A good fit between therapist and client is vital to successful therapy. You’re invited to explore this website to get a glimpse of Liana and her approach to counseling (for more information about Liana, click
