Erik worked with me to help me understand the the many layers of relationships, family, and faith.

I have worked with Erik as a colleague for a few years. I refer to him often because I know that his approach is grounded in Biblical principles of grace and truth. He values people and is highly skilled in working with a variety of struggles. I have received positive feedback from clients that Erik has helped. I highly recommend him.

I have known Erik Mildes for many years. As a Christian counselor he is not only a man of diverse experience and knowledge, but also understanding, integrity and empathy. His goal is to see his clients improve so that they ultimately don’t need him. I would definitely recommend him.

I have known Erik Mildes for about 15 years. He is an exceptional therapist. He is able to deeply hear what people are really saying and nothing is too much for him. I have noticed that clients bring their hardest struggles to him and he helps them sort through what is going on and find lasting help. He is a solid Christian, both respectful of other people’s beliefs but very grounded in his beliefs.

worked with Erik Mildes of Bothell Christian Counseling for several years. He’s a man of integrity, good humor and grit, clear on personal boundaries and confidentiality, consistent in his faith. He takes the counseling work prayerfully, yet is not stuffy about the process.

I especially appreciate how Erik was fine with having my husband sit in on a counseling session every few months. Given the intimate nature of psychological and spiritual counseling, such accountability (more than simply putting a face to a name) is wise. Erik repeatedly honored the “sanctity of marriage” (as he called it) by listening to my husband’s side of the story, encouraging him for his faithfulness and calling me to be responsible for my part in our marital conflicts.

Every friend and family member I have referred to Erik’s group has thanked me. In one case, the friend-of-a-friend finally found a Christian counselor familiar with (not unnerved by) dissociative disorders, in the past, more of a niche market, apparently. (Erik did not “confirm or deny” whether he was working with my friend’s friend, let alone tell me how she was doing.)

With God’s help, through Erik, my life changed for the better. I’ve “tried” quite a few counselors in my day, and Erik was the keeper.
