We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

I have a collaborative approach to counseling where I work with clients to help them identify areas for change and to make changes by setting specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-sensitive goals. To do this, I incorporate evidence-based treatments, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness meditation, and other modalities. Generally, this involves changing or adjusting our relationship to our thoughts and changing behaviors that negatively impact our functioning and get in the way of us living meaningful lives based on our values and what is important to us.

I am currently not accepting new clients! Please check out my colleagues on our website! I believe that counseling is a journey to self-discovery that you are choosing to stop taking alone. Everything you need is already within you; sometimes it just takes a little guidance to really make the changes you want to make in your life. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ clients, non-monogamous and kinky adults, sex workers, and those with alternative spiritualities. I am sex-positive and body-positive. I also work with people who have acute diagnoses, and I have experience working with folks who have been involuntarily hospitalized.

"One of the things that baffles me...is how there can be so much lingering stigma with regards to mental illness..."- Carrie Fisher. I find beauty and strength in these matter-of-fact words. I wholeheartedly agree that mental health conditions that cause distress should be destigmatized. I view people as inherently strong, ultimately resilient and inherently having great value, even when individuals suffer from mental health strains and conditions. A strength-centered approach informs both how I work with clients, and my outlook on life. My quest is to help you also find, or remember, the worth, value & resilience inherent in you.

I believe that people are already whole and that what we perceive as our brokenness usually comes from some kind of disconnection from ourselves and other people. Anxiety, depression, a general feeling of loneliness or feeling unloveable, all these stem from these disconnections. I value and honor each person's individual experiences and needs, acknowledging that many of us lose our sense of our uniqueness along life's path. I hope to help you learn more about your self-worth in the face of previous relationships, families, and systems that have told you you aren't good enough.

Whether you’re processing major life events or looking for help coping with day-to-day issues, I’d be honored to join you on your journey. As a trauma survivor myself, I know first-hand the importance of having compassionate, attuned support for engaging in deep work. I offer a relational approach to therapy, drawing from my training in trauma, safety, attachment, and emotional regulation. The current research shows that we can’t “talk our way out” trauma, pain, or discomfort. So the therapy I offer is experiential and relational, using the body and nervous system as resources for building resiliency and feeling more at ease.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Alki Beach, Seattle can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
