My specialty is in working with individuals who have histories of trauma and abuse .
If you are with coping with traumatic stress or you are using alcohol or other drugs to cope, you may be considering therapy because some of the ways you are thinking, feeling and behaving don't make sense to you. Maybe you have said these things to yourself. I keep doing the same thing in relationships or at work thinking it will be different this time. I am either on edge and anxious or numb and shut down. I am using alcohol, drugs or other harmful behaviors to feel less bad. I feel like there is a war going on inside me.

I have a specialty in relationship difficulties, intimate partner abuse , trauma and cultural adjustment.
My therapy work is focused on emotional health and wellbeing. I work individually with clients and tailor treatment to best fit each person's concerns, character and goals. I do this by integrating insight-oriented treatment and establishing new ways of being in the present. This combines the exploration of long-standing maladaptive patterns and a focus on present-day functioning. I help also people examine and improve relationship dynamics.

I have extensive experience with adult survivors of childhood abuse diagnosed with PTSD and Dissociative Disorders.
My belief that the therapeutic relationship is the key element of successful treatment informs my practice. This working relationship, based on mutual trust and shared goals, allows for self-exploration and ultimately personal growth. In working with individuals, couples, families and/or groups I think that connecting the dots between past and present allows the client to have a better grasp on what is influencing her/his feelings and life choices leading to greater empowerment and life satisfaction.

I have expertise in working with clients impacted by relationship issues, strained relationships with family, trauma, abuse , sexual violence , emotional neglect, and other forms of interpersonal violence .
Every client I work with is multifaceted and has many identities. I adapt my approach to meet people where they are, and honor the differences between us. People often come to therapy looking for change. I aim to provide a supportive space where change can safely occur. I have training in Somatic Experiencing, and believe that supporting the mind-body connection can be a fundamental part of a full healing and growth process. I believe every person has an innate capacity to heal, adapt, and thrive, once genuine support and safety are in place. Whether you reach out to me or another therapist, I hope you find what you need.

Sometimes, life imposes barriers or rifts on our path, leaving us lost or stuck, uncertain of how to move forward. I support those who arrive at this place by holding a container for deeper self exploration and encouraging one's remembrance of their innate ability to heal and grow. Individuals connect with me for a trusted space to tend to wounds of developmental and ancestral trauma, sexual and domestic violence , and grief and loss. Others seek me out for support in cultivating an integrated awareness of themselves, their relationships, and their part in our world or to prepare for and process psychedelic journeys.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for a Washington domestic abuse or domestic violence therapist, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counseling in Washington.
