I specialize in the treatment of trauma, depression, and anxiety in late adolescents, adults and elderly individuals. I believe in the healing power of being heard, and that the most important aspect of therapy is a good relationship between therapist and client. I have extensive experience providing PTSD therapy for combat veterans and use that experience when helping individuals recovering from traumatic events. I believe in the capacity for people to heal from trauma. Additionally I have extensive experience working with men on issues such as anger management, relationship challenges, emotional numbing, and employment difficulties.

I see the therapeutic process as a partnership that allows us to work together. We examine the "treatment menu" and identify what fits best: Detox, in-patient, out-patient, individual counseling, mindfulness and meditation, dance, exercise, nutrition, a spiritual path and support groups like 12-Step, SMART recovery and Refuge Recovery. Addiction (or compulsion) is challenging, baffling, frustrating and a powerful teacher. To be free from craving allows such emotions as peace of mind and contentment to arise - I consider it a honor to help my clients step onto the path to recovery.

Whether you’re dealing with new stressors or old wounds, therapy can help you feel better. The process of sharing your story in a supportive, non-judgmental setting allows you to untangle it, find the important threads, and weave them together into a stronger, more resilient fabric. This may sound daunting, but you don’t have to do it alone. We’ll roll up our sleeves and work together to clarify what’s most important to you, deepen your understanding of what’s getting in your way, and most importantly, take the steps needed to not just go forward, but to grow forward.

I believe it is in the context of relationship that we begin to build an understanding of ourselves and the world. Whether these relationships have been helpful, harmful, or somewhere in between, they shape the way we think, feel and behave. Therefore, as counseling begins we will take time to be curious about how your relational experiences have impacted you. We will explore your past and current stories. We will spend time identifying what is currently troubling you, possible origins of unhelpful coping strategies, and then together identify steps you can take to begin to find healing or freedom.

It's so frustrating to want change and feel stuck. I want you to know there IS a way to change the things you want to change. There is a way to find yourself, trust yourself and care for yourself. Therapy is an opportunity to heal painful wounds and discover why you face the same challenges over and over.

You're struggling to control the negative storyteller in your mind. You imagine catastrophic scenarios linked to everyday moments, actively planning for how people will respond to what you say or do. That inner narrative is draining your mental energy, protecting against something that isn't going to happen. The easy option is to put up walls, blocking people from being able to hurt you. But that only makes you more fearful and lonely. What if you could find a way to have healthy boundaries that allow people to connect with you? A way to relate that feels wonderful?

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Bellingham or for a Bellingham CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
