Under Clinical Supervision

Darby Robertson, Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, MC61466521 is practicing under the supervision of Dr. Leah Batty-Hibbs, PhD (Washington, LMHC, LH61005472) at Deep Roots Counseling, PLLC.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

Recognizing the impact our relationships have on our wellbeing, I use an integrative approach that is grounded in attachment theory and incorporates a variety of therapeutic modalities, including emotion-focused, feminist, humanistic, existential, motivational interviewing, and polyvagal theory to provide personalized, trauma-informed care. I believe strongly in client-centered work, which means I feel a deep sense of responsibility to support you in ways that center your needs and values, trusting that you know yourself best.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

As an attachment-focused counselor, the therapeutic relationship is at the center of my practice and I believe building trust is key. It is my profound hope that our work together will help you feel understood, accepted, and empowered. We come to know ourselves best in relationships and I aspire to do my part to ensure that ours can be a trusted source of safety and comfort, from which you can bravely explore the parts of yourself and your experiences that feel challenging, scary, shameful, or unknown.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I integrate a social justice and anti-oppressive lens into my clinical practice and strive to ensure clients feel wholly seen and supported in all their identities. I am queer-, poly-, and sex-positive, aligned with Health At Every Size (HAES) Principles, and committed to anti-racism. I believe our identities—numerous, unique, and intersecting—are relevant to the therapeutic space.

Education

Antioch University Seattle, Master of Arts, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Certificate in Addiction Studies, 2023

I attended Antioch's Clinical Mental Health Counseling Master's program which is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). This means that the curriculum and faculty were vetted by CACREP to ensure they meet the highest national standards in counselor training and supervision with advanced competencies in multicultural counseling, evidence-based practices, and clinical competencies. I also completed Antioch's Addiction Studies Certificate program, with an emphasis on the neuroscience of addiction, attachment injury, and trauma. I understand the dynamic relationship that can exist between mental health and substance use and pursued dual credentials as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA) and Substance Use Disorder Professional Trainee (SUDPT) to be able to offer holistic behavioral health support to my clients. Whether you’re seeking support related to mental health, substance use, or both, I can help.

Work History

I have been in the field since 2016, during which time I have had the opportunity to work with clients in a variety of settings and circumstances. I have practiced counseling at Antioch Community Counseling and Psychology Clinic and TouchStone Behavioral Health. In addition to outpatient counseling with individuals and couples and group facilitation, I have extensive experience in crisis intervention. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked at the King County Crisis Line for 8 years. In this role, I worked closely with clients, families, first responders, crisis teams, hospitals, and the public behavioral health system to connect individuals in crisis to the appropriate level of intervention and treatment. My background allows me to have a unique familiarity with health systems and resource navigation as well as the ability to remain compassionate and grounded in the presence of deep human emotions.
