Life's challenges can sometimes push our coping skills to the brink, and what used to work for us no longer does. Relief from psychological pain comes when we face feelings that we are avoiding and develop new ways of looking at our lives. I have worked successfully with adults experiencing difficult situations at work, in relationships, and in life transitions. Through our work together, I will help you challenge unhelpful beliefs and alleviate distressing emotions so that you can free yourself from suffering, regain hope, make better choices, and live a more authentic, satisfying life.

Unexpected challenges, loss, or the simple momentum of life can sometimes make it hard to feel solid or know how to respond. Inner distress or outward behaviors can make it difficult to feel good about oneself or get along with others. At these times, one can benefit greatly from the support of a trained therapist to explore experiences, feelings, and concerns. I create a confidential supportive space where clients have the opportunity to draw upon their inner strengths and capacity to grow, discover new perspectives, tools, and options for behavior, and develop as individuals to improve their quality of life.

I am so glad you stopped by my profile! Welcome to your healing phase. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, shame, and hurt, you have found the right one. If you often put on a strong face for others or say you like yourself but don’t really feel that way there is help. I know you want to stop feeling anxious, avoiding people, and events. You want the bad thoughts to stop. You may want to get over the grief of losing a loved one, or a divorce. You want to be happy, and to know if you work at it you can be happy again. Your goal is to be whole, loved, and purposeful and that comes with loving yourself, flaws and all.

There are many misconceptions about what it means to be in therapy. Anyone can benefit from therapy, regardless of what walk of life they come from. It does not mean that you are broken, weak or crazy. What it does mean is that you are up for the challenge of confronting harmful beliefs, habits, and communication styles so that you can live a life that is authentically yours. Sitting across from this screen right now takes courage and vulnerability. Our mental health shows itself in all areas of our lives: relationships, perception, management of daily life, sense of self, and our ability connect to our emotions and body.

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better—less anxious, more confident, even happy? It seems like you’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You may be able to support others yet you fall short on supporting yourself. You no longer feel like yourself and worry that it could get worse. Imagine what it would feel like not to constantly worry and to be confident in your ability to handle challenging situations. Therapy is a step in practicing self-awareness and self-care.

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.

BlueCross BlueShield Therapists
BlueCross BlueShield insurance provides coverage for behavioral health services in Washington. BCBS HMO-style plans cover in-network providers while PPO plans provide a benefit that can be applied to either in-network or out-of-network providers. Blue Cross Blue Shield may not require a referral from your primary care practitioner for covered behavioral health services.

Some BCBS Therapists in Washington only have room for a few insurance slots in their schedule, so it's important to confirm in-network availability when you book your first appointment.

Blue Cross Blue Shield companies are independently owned and community-based healthcare insurers. BCBS is the largest health insurer in the US, covering 110 million members in 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Nationwide, more than 1.7 million health care providers contract with Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies.
