I believe that one of the ways in which self-awareness is achieved is through the sharing of one's story. Therefore, I strive diligently to create a safe space for one to share both the beauty and the brokenness of one's story with authenticity, genuineness, and integrity. When appropriate, I infuse spirituality and religion into my therapeutic practice; thus enabling my clients to articulate their feelings of dis-ease within the context of their faith. I have found this approach to be particularly effective in working with populations marginalized because of race, gender, or sexual orientation.

My practice is based on the belief that healing and emotional growth take place in an environment of safety, empathy and reflection. Active listening, validation, and mirroring encourage a client to slip past old barriers and reach new levels of self-awareness and self-acceptance. Together, we explore the experiences and expectations that have driven maladaptive patterns, as well as the ways in which emotional wounds power the repetition of unsatisfying behaviors, relationships, and self-defeating life narratives. The joy I've take in my work for 25 years facilitates the bonds that form between me and my clients.

At times the road to your fullest life is found by moving through trauma, rage, loss, and betrayal. How we cope with those hardships is important. Therapy can help you become more aware of suffering, the sources that are causing it, and tools to help you overcome it. I invite us to imagine a life beyond fear, shame, and regret. One where you feel your innate wisdom, compassion, and capacity, to live life more fully despite all of its complexities.

I am eager to work with adults who have experienced trauma and want therapy to look through how it has impacted them. Trauma can mean a lot to different people though whether that is from sexual assault, military combat, child abuse, cultural/religious abuse or loss of a loved one. What is important is that there was a meaningful shift you struggle to deal with, and I want to help. It also more than post-traumatic stress. You can also experience great sadness, daily stress or trouble in your relationships you do not understand.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Washington?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
