I use a mix of psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive behavior therapy ( CBT ) to help people notice and be curious about their feelings, thoughts, behaviors.
Therapy works best when you’re feeling understood. By processing and understanding the events of your life and your reaction to them, we will identify healthy coping strategies to manage stress and strong emotions. Have you experienced a loss that feels overwhelming? Feeling “stuck” or alone in your grief? Together, we can work to help you feel better.

I am integrative in my approach and tailor the use of evidence-based techniques from cognitive -behavioral, emotion-focused, and psychodynamic treatment modalities to each client's needs, goals, and interests.
Welcome! I am a results-oriented therapist who specializes in helping individuals break free of old patterns, find motivation, form deeper relationships, and manage difficult transitions. Using foundations of attachment and neuroscience, I work collaboratively with clients to help them gain insight into how they are "wired". This blueprint allows us to develop effective strategies that both reduce immediate stress and make lasting impacts on your overall well-being and life satisfaction. I believe that the therapist-client connection is paramount to this work and strive to provide a space that is safe, thought-provoking, (sometimes) fun, and always real.

I utilize a variety of tool sets, including positive psychology, cognitive behavioral techniques, relaxation/meditation, strengths coaching, personality analysis, and as I consult on women's issues, utilize gender specific research.
Those who come to me are typically looking to become more confident and self assured, feel happier, communicate clearly and confidently, ease anxiety stemming from public speaking or interpersonal interaction, and/or find a fulfilling relationship or recover from a bad one. I am an action oriented coach, and use exercises and tangible tools to increase "stickiness," and forming of new neural pathways. I want to be clear that I am a coach, not a psychologist, therefore if you are experiencing any significant psychological difficulties, I suggest www.drhelenekarlin.com.

My approach to therapy is integrative although I frequently use mindfulness, cognitive -behavioral, and humanistic approaches.
I earned my Ph.D from Penn State and M.A. from Boston College. In addition to my clinical training I have an extensive research background in "over-thinking", relationships, anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. My approach to therapy is strength-based and results oriented. I adapt the work I do in psychotherapy to each individual client as I've found that each person benefits from an individualized treatment plan and a psychologist who is knowledgeable and experienced in a range of effective treatments.

As a clinician, I use integrative techniques, drawing primarily from the Humanistic, Positive Psychology and Cognitive Behavioral ( CBT ) orientations, in order to effectively meet the needs of individuals I work with.
As a therapist I believe that all individuals have the potential to flourish in their lives. A person who flourishes increases their happiness, well-being and purpose in life. In order to flourish a person must understand and cultivate their strengths. Through the cultivation of ones strengths a person will be able to build and or deepen their interpersonal relationships, increase the amount of pleasure they experience, and contribute to society in a meaningful way.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Washington or for a Washington CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
