I use elements of cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness to assist clients in making positive change.
I specialize in working with adults, millennials, students, and adolescents contending with grief and loss, school and job stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. I use solution-focused, brief therapy to increase my clients' resiliency and their ability to cope with life's challenges. I help clients find meaning and purpose in their daily lives and assist them in identifying and meeting personal goals. I am a frequent contributor to articles in publications such as Parade, TodayShow.com, Refinery29, Bustle, The Daily Beast, and Teen Vogue.

Scientific research supports including body-based mindfulness and body based practices to treat trauma.
Are you suffering from the effects of PTSD, anxiety, depression, sudden loss, and/or chronic pain? If so body-oriented psychotherapy may help facilitate your recovery. By working to address the root causes of nervous system imbalance, a body-psychotherapy approach can empower you with tools and skills to re-negotiate and resolve difficult and traumatic experiences. My approach in therapy is client-centered and my work is just to facilitate and provide the optimal conditions for healing to take place. I also hope to impart knowledge and skills for people to work with themselves effectively outside of therapy.

Welcome, I truly believe that therapy is a brave and courageous choice. I strive to create a warm, empathetic, and safe environment for each client that chooses to work with me. I have a special expertise working with both adolescents and adults with mood disorders. Our relationship will be used as an element of change. Often, I will utilize aspects of our relationship to highlight barriers to change and provide a warm and directive approach to push you towards growth. My approach within our therapeutic relationship tends to be more collaborative and I commonly use interventions including mindfulness , CBT, DBT and attachment theory.

Using a blend of psychodynamic, CBT and mindfulness techniques, we dig in and unpack issues that hold you back.
I have two decades of experience working with people affected by assault, childhood abuse, PTSD, loss and grief, LGBTQ+ issues, substance abuse, depression, anxiety and other mood disorders. I also enjoy working with people of all ages who are in life transitions or who may feel stuck as they try to move forward professionally or in their personal relationships. My clients are a rich mix of all races, cultures, ages, genders/sexual identities and religions. I am personally aware of the multicultural social and relational issues that many face. In the end, what we all want is to find happiness in our lives.

I integrate evidence-based cognitive and behavioral techniques and mind-body approaches (CBT, EMDR, Brainspotting, and mindfulness ) to address not only symptoms but also the core of why this event stayed with you.
Finding a therapist can be tough. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed. Maybe life has thrown more at you than you think you can handle, or your usual coping strategies are failing. Using humor and a collaborative approach, we can tackle these challenges together. Drawing on your own innate resilience and capacity to change, I hope to give confidence to the belief that change is possible and that you can feel better.

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.

I honor each person’s unique story and strategically tailor therapy to each individual, drawing from a blend of trauma-informed, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness , expressive, and internal family systems approaches.
I believe each of us has the innate ability to heal from past trauma and pain and nurture our authentic selves. My clients bring varied challenges to therapy including trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, grief, shame, and difficulty with transitions or relationships. Clients have told me I have been a safe person, empathetic and non-judgmental listener, trusted guide, and empowering source of support. I help clients engage in self-exploration, identify patterns and strengths, develop self-compassion and confidence, access calm presence, distinguish past from present, face fears, shift reactions, and thrive.

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.

I include mindfulness and incorporate my unique experience and expertise as a Health At Every Size (HAES) dietitian and personal trainer into counseling to support you on your journey.
Does how you look and thinking about food take up all your free time and you feel you can’t get away from thinking about it and feeling shame? You are not alone. I understand how difficult this makes life for you on every level- from avoiding interactions with others at work, to issues with intimacy in dating/relationships and feeling like you don't fit in. With me, you will learn to identify unhealthy thoughts, habits, and patterns to safely challenge and replace those negative thoughts. You will experience relief from being your own worst critic, improved comfort in socializing with others and feel better about yourself overall.

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.

Welcome! When seeking help, people genuinely want to feel heard and understood. In our sessions, my job is to make you feel comfortable to share whatever it is that you are bravely confronting with the help of therapy. My approach is rooted in mindfulness , empathic, and supportive, with you in the driver's seat. I am interested in abolition and intersectional feminism and believe these ideas to be relevant to the wellness of all beings. Investigating how environments influence how one shows up in relationships, at work, and with family, combined with exploring how one's past has shaped their present guide my therapeutic focus.

My approach to counseling is to create a safe space for growth and healing. I believe that growth and healing happen when people recognize that they have a circle of care (including clinicians) that show them empathy and support, that they can rely on and recognize that they have their best interests in mind. My therapeutic techniques include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness , and Solution-Focused Therapy to create an atmosphere where the client recognizes that they are in control of their therapeutic experience.

Finally, I have a specialty teaching mindfulness , with a focus on mindfulness for athletes.
As a licensed psychologist, I provide individual therapy to adolescent and adult clients looking to better understand themselves and their relationships. People often seek therapy to address symptoms or problems that they want to change, but ironically, this felt need for things to be different can often create more stress. I believe people are more than their problems, and so my aim is to create a safe, nonjudgmental space to explore the connections between your past experience, relational patterns, and current behaviors to help you a achieve a meaningful sense of self-awareness, thereby giving you more freedom and choice.

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.
