About Me

Hey there! I'm Austin Cresap, a therapist and sex educator residing in the vibrant city of Seattle. I'm an LMFTA (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate) and have had the incredible opportunity to work with a diverse range of clients, including children, individuals, couples, and seniors.

One of my areas of expertise and true passion lies in sex therapy. Our society bombards us with contradictory messages about sexuality, leaving many feeling bewildered and fragmented. I firmly believe in the power of open and honest conversations surrounding sexuality and intimacy. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where my clients can explore their desires, address concerns, and foster healthy relationships.

In my therapeutic approach, I adopt a relaxed and down-to-earth style that puts my clients at ease. By bringing my authentic self to our sessions, I aim to establish a genuine connection with each individual I work with. Building trust and rapport is vital to the therapeutic process, and I am dedicated to creating a warm and supportive environment where you can freely express yourself.

 

When I'm not working, you'll often find me immersing myself in nature, finding solace in the great outdoors. I also love curling up with a captivating murder mystery or diving into a good book to expand my knowledge. Additionally, I have a deep passion for cooking and yoga as some of my favorite forms of self-care.

 

If you're in search of a therapist or educator who is genuinely invested in your well-being, a safe space to delve into your thoughts and emotions, and a collaborative journey toward personal growth and fulfillment, I would be honored to walk alongside you on this path. Together, we can navigate life's complexities and strive towards creating a healthier, happier version of yourself.
