I draw from various theoretical models such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness .
I understand that reaching out for therapy is often a challenge and that it may be difficult to choose a therapist with whom you feel comfortable. I have been providing therapy for 23 years and have built a practice predicated upon expertise, trust, collaboration, and confidentiality. I specialize in providing support and successful techniques to help you manage stressors and symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, relationship stress, and addiction. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples, and I am comfortable providing therapy in your home, if you are unable to come to the office.

My training in object relations therapy informs all of my work, but I draw on techniques such as EFT and mindfulness practice, among others, as needed.
Since 1991 I have been helping clients resolve the conflicts that have been preventing them from achieving their potential. I help women navigate the ups and downs of infertility treatments and identify the best ways to achieve their dreams of motherhood. Using my background in Employee Assistance work, I help clients gain perspective on workplace conflicts, resolve performance issues, and clarify professional goals. I help clients looking for love to identify their barriers to intimacy, examine expectations, and give relationships a chance at success. I have a special interest in holistic treatments.

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. Sessions will be held virtually until further notice.

In therapy, I am interested in helping clients develop skills to 1)accept difficult thoughts/feelings, while reducing their negative impact 2)effectively approach these thoughts/feelings using mindfulness , self-compassion and psychological flexibility 3)explore personal values and engage in committed action toward creating a meaningful, vibrant life.
I am committed to providing effective, empirically tested, affordable treatment. My approach is honest, collaborative, interactive, and nonjudgmental. Often in life we buy into stories about ourselves that seem to protect us but ultimately prevent us from moving toward the things we value. We get caught up in judging whether a behavior is good or bad, rather than asking if it is effective in creating the life that we envision.

Do you feel stuck in life, unable to move forward, to grow? Life can feel out of control leading to feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, frustration, loneliness, isolation and boredom. These feelings can lead to unhealthy coping skills and acting out with drugs, alcohol, sex, food, spending, gambling, etc. I focus on helping my clients regain control and develop healthy coping skills. My practice combines cognitive behavioral therapy with motivational interviewing and mindfulness to help find solutions in the here and now.

 Techniques that are used include slowing things down ( mindfulness ) and exploring our relational patterns that express themselves in our thoughts and feelings (cognitive behavioral therapy).
So many of us have trouble making decisions or deepening relationships, because we learned to connect with others needs above our own. While this was highly adaptive, and even necessary in the past, it can lead to a sense of disconnection and restlessness. Relationally this may manifest as disappointment or unexpressed conflict, due to an engrained pattern of avoidance. In this state, it is difficult to know what actions to take towards change. Reaching out for help, though imperative, can be just as challenging as continuing in the pain. This is what causes most of my clients to reach out.

In addition to psychodynamically oriented talk therapy, I integrate mindfulness , trauma informed approaches, somatic imagery, and EMDR, all depending on your individual needs.
There are times that you might feel stuck in patterns that make life feel unsatisfying and empty. Maybe you feel depressed, anxious or in chronic pain. You may be negotiating a relationship or trying to adjust to a new job. Psychotherapy allows you the space to understand how your past and present intersect and what gets in the way of living life to your fullest while also helping you to tap into your inner resources. My approach is collaborative, thus giving you the space to reflect carefully. I work with you to develop better coping skills and help you to understand & manage complex feelings of anxiety or sadness.

The skill sets I typically use are CBT, executive skills training, mindfulness -based skills, inner child healing work, and an approach to anxiety based on poly-vagal theory (understanding how to navigate the nervous system).
My ideal client is someone who is really ready to do some at times difficult, yet transformative work. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, ADHD and the common co-occurance of these disorders - although I tend to treat symptoms more than I focus on diagnosis. I use the most up-to-date and most-effective scientific methods for treatment. However, I am by no means a dry and robotic person as this last sentence might suggest! In addition to skill-building, I further help my clients dig deep and learn more about themselves through investigative conversations with the hope of minimizing or even eliminating symptoms.

Do you feel “stuck” in repeating patterns? Do you long for a change but can’t seem to make it happen? Or have you recently made a big transition and need help adjusting? Has trauma – either a one-time life event, or an ongoing stressful situation – stopped you from living fully? I help individuals and couples identify goals and the barriers to reaching them. With a collaborative and supportive approach you will find purpose, confidence, and belonging. My approach emphasizes self- determination and collaboration, drawing on evidence-based talk therapies and mind-body approaches like EMDR, mindfulness meditation, and yoga.

Using IFS, Sensorimotor, mindfulness , psychodynamic and other modalities, I am available to work with people of any age around most concerns.
Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.

I enjoy using mindfulness and self-compassion, as well as insight oriented exploration to help you better navigate your life and relationships.
You are seeking therapy because it is time to make a change. Maybe you know exactly what you want to change, and maybe you're still figuring that out, but something about your current experience needs to shift before you can move toward the life you want. As an integrative psychologist, I love helping individuals and couples uncover what is most important to them, as well as what is getting in the way, so that they can begin to live with a greater sense of purpose, connection, and well-being. I would love to help you do the same.

I provide short-term psychodynamic therapy that combines mindfulness , relaxation and deep breathing, body sensory awareness and insight within a safe nonjudgmental space.
I work with a wide range of clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds in person and remotely. Clients learn to reduce stress and work with their feelings in ways that lead to personal growth and development of effective interpersonal skills. Feelings that cause stress, anxiety, depression, excessive self-criticism, perfectionism and emotional flooding are processed so that these problem feelings can lead to growth, greater empathy for self and others as well as greater kindness towards others in their life. Additionally, clients who employ detachment as a means of self-protection develop emotional awareness and intelligence.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Washington with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Washington can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Washington MBCT therapists.
