Therapy offers a dedicated time for you to pause, see yourself, and remove some of the old layers of protection that no longer serve. Anxiety, depression, and relationship issues make it hard to see clearly and take the next step. It takes a lot of courage to say “I don’t want to live this way,” and get help to make a change. As your therapist, my goal is to help you create the life that you want to live by identifying areas of growth and building skills to solve the challenges that get in the way. I believe that change is possible and therapy can help.

I believe that the therapist/client relationship is central to making progress. You have to find "the right fit" in order to feel safe. My goal is to help people increase self-awareness; understanding the positive and harmful ways that they relate to others. The potential benefits of therapy include improved mood, decreased anxiety, increased capacity to experience joy in life, improved self-esteem and better relationships. Many people struggle for a long time before deciding it's time to get help. It takes courage to try to change. If you are willing to work in therapy, change is attainable.

I help adults navigate the challenging experience of coping with grief following a loss. I also help clients with anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and family-of-origin issues. I specialize in treating complicated grief, traumatic bereavement, and grief stemming from attachment trauma, relationship loss, and family estrangement. Loss is often a highly distressing experience and there is not a duration of time that grieving should take; however, some mourners feel stuck in their grief or desire support. My aim is not to help you extinguish or "cure" grief, but to help you find ways to integrate it into your life narrative.

The key to successful therapy is a relationship with a caring, nonjudgmental therapist there to respond sensitively and patiently to whatever comes up. In my work, I offer that to my clients, as we collaborate in developing an understanding of your emotional states and how they drive your thoughts and actions. We’ll learn together what you need to strengthen and grow. My work with children and adolescents informs my understanding of development over the life span, and how those relationships and experiences that shape us are alive in the present moment.

Typically individuals come to psychotherapy for relief of emotional and psychological pain, which may take the form of depression, anxiety, self-defeating behavior, and/or unfulfilled relationships or goals, to name a few. Many can identify some past trauma, or perhaps some mistreatment that seems somehow connected. For others the reasons are more elusive, like a general feeling of unhappiness, perhaps with oneself or with others.I strive to help you verbalize your thoughts and feelings about what happens between us in our emerging relationship as a way of understanding your relationships in general.

My practice focuses on adolescents and adults of all ages. I conceptualize issues from a cognitive-behavioral approach, meaning that I will explore together with you the thoughts and feelings related to your behavior patterns and examine the impact of any biological, psychological, and social factors. We will work together to make manageable changes so that you can feel better and move forward to reach your goals. Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to problems, and a reduction in anxiety and stress. For more details check out my website at reignitepsych.com.

I have been in practice for over thirty years and have had the privilege of working with a wide range of individuals, e.g.,people feeling stuck despite having a great deal of talent, people disappointed or frustrated by their relationships or lack of relationships, people dealing with earlier childhood traumas such as loss of a parent or sexual abuse, and with people feeling anxious and unable to enjoy life. I believe that everyone has a unique story and that therapy can be extremely helpful in understanding that story and creating a more fulfilling narrative for the future.

I work with individuals who feel their lives are hindered by unwanted or distressing feelings, or self-defeating patterns of behavior, and who experience depression, anxiety, anger, low self esteem, compulsive or impulsive behaviors, or relationship difficulties. By establishing more effective coping skills and responses, positive changes can develop and lead to a greater sense of fulfillment. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively, exploring the foundation of the problem, identifying problematic patterns, and then developing treatment goals tailored to the unique needs of each individual client.

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.
