Mary P. Loudon, PhD
Dr. Mary Loudon, co-founder of The Seattle Clinic, is an internationally recognized expert in Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP), an interpersonal and emotionally-focused treatment approach that applies decades of basic behavioral science to the therapeutic encounter.
Dr. Loudon earned her doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of Washington where she specialized in cognitive behavioral therapies including Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness-based therapies. She received advanced clinical training in FAP, co-instructed the UW FAP Training Practicum for 5 years, and completed her post-doctoral fellowship with Dr. Mavis Tsai, the creator of FAP. Mary is a certified FAP Trainer and workshop leader who has taught, supervised, and provided consultation for hundreds of FAP practitioners domestically and abroad.
In 2009, Dr. Loudon became a member of the Clinical Psychology Faculty at the University of Washington and since this time she has provided clinical supervision to doctoral students in FAP, ACT, and EFT. In her private practice, she works with individual adults and couples across a wide span of concerns including anxiety, emotional disconnection from self or others, low mood, grief, trauma, and interpersonal connection and intimacy. She also provides therapy for therapists - an endeavor especially suited for professionals who want to improve their therapeutic skills while cultivating deeper courage, awareness, and love in their personal lives.
