Is your Child or Teen having problems with anxiety, depression, or self-esteem issues? Is your family having significant parent-child conflict? I want to help you & your family achieve a healthier life. Adolescents and young adults have unique challenges that can be difficult to navigate. During these critical periods in life, many may face peer issues, family conflict, self-esteem difficulty, parent-child conflict, and difficulty with transitions (e.g., high school to college; college to career). I have approximately 10 years of experience working with these age groups. Currently, I am also available to see young adult clients.

Throughout life we go through tremendous life transitions that can affect us in a variety of ways. These transitions may find us feeling vulnerable, alone, depressed, anxious, and oftentimes hopeless. I am passionate about creating a safe space for my clients to embrace their true thoughts and feelings, void of judgements, as they heal, grow, and welcome self-love. My approach to providing evidence-based counseling stems from a strong foundation of person-centered care, cultural humility, and building authentic relationships with my clients that allows room for positive change.

I believe therapy is a collaborative relationship that can lead to finding new and positive ways of relating to people and situations in your life. In therapy, we look at the distinctive ways in which you relate to me and others, whether or not you are aware of them, and then we analyze them so you can consciously begin to do something different. I want to make psychotherapy affordable, so I accept clients on a sliding scale basis, from $100 to $150. I would be happy to hear from you.

Eating disorders are like chasing a rabbit down a hole in pursuit of something you lost. One day, you realize what you lost was yourself. Food, exercise, & body image are treacherous to navigate in a society that overvalues appearance and that values some body types over others. It can be especially challenging if you identify as autistic, an ADHDer, a highly sensitive person, and/or a human who wrestles with gender dysphoria. Who you are is a gift. You do not have to hide or become less of who you are. Through therapy we will uncover and use your unique strengths to move towards growth and healing.

I am a gay psychotherapist, and enjoy and have had success working with both LGBTq and heterosexual adult clients. A warm and supportive environment allows for the gradual development of a professional relationship between client and therapist that can provide an important basis for their work together. Individuals often come into my practice dealing with feelings of depression and anxiety, as well as the impact of trauma, that affect both their ability to have a positive self-image and sense of identity, and to move ahead in their life. I support a client around reducing these blocks in their life.

I believe that most people struggle at some points in their life. Many people find a way through that struggle, but it can take a while, and some people get stuck in the struggle. I can help you get to the root of what’s holding you back. One of my strengths is helping people dig through the clutter to find the real reasons they are stuck. Therapy is a place to process emotions and examine ways of thinking that hold us back from living a fuller and more fulfilling life. My priorities are to meet you where you are, figure out what’s going on together, and develop effective plans for change, to conquer challenges and nurture growth.

We all feel stuck at times. I believe this experience can result from an unhelpful pattern developed over time, and in addition to feeling lost or unfulfilled, we may find ourselves having emotional or behavioral concerns. From a non-judgmental space, I offer a supportive environment to connect while we work together to uncover the patterns that may contribute to pain and problems in your daily life. It is my aim to help illuminate different ways of being so that you may experience less pain, more satisfaction, and a greater quality of life.

What type of Washington mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Washington?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
