I believe strongly that the therapeutic relationship is paramount in attaining benefit from psychotherapy. Feeling safe, validated, and heard are incredibly important. A sense of trust, as well as having a supportive, and open environment are foundational in beginning the process of unpacking, sorting, and addressing what has brought you to this moment. Essentially, your connection with your therapist matters. My approach is person-centered, with hopes of being able to meet you where you are, with a therapeutic orientation that is intuitive in nature.

To decide and take the step toward seeking a counselor is an extremely difficult and courageous one, and here you are. Counseling to me is a collaborative and holistic process. I walk with you and help you to identify your challenges, and pain, as well as finding peace, relief, joy, pieces of you that may be lost and self acceptance. Life is difficult, as we all experience, and having a counselor on your side can assist you in finding your authentic self and reach your goals. Through life's many transitions, barriers, and successes, as as well as past trauma, I hope to help you in this.

"The journey we are on takes us in all different directions, testing us at every turn. There is help and hope. I have been honored to hear people's stories at various points of their journey; witnessing, observing, supporting, empathizing, listening and reflecting. Through hearing their stories, I have learned how fragile the human condition is, and at the same time, the empowering strengths and resiliency each one intrinsically has in adapting and surviving the difficulties put before them."

Connection is critical to our well-being, as are the experiences of feeling seen, understood and valued for who we truly are. My role is to help create an environment in which you experience these things, from which I can offer individualized therapy based on your specific problems and goals.

***PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NO LONGER ACCEPTING CLIENTS AT MY SEATTLE LOCATION*** Perhaps you're seeking relief after struggling with the same problem for years. You kept hoping that it would go away on its own, but it just keeps dogging you. Or, a current situation is bringing back old, unpleasant feelings or frustrating behaviors that you thought you had "dealt with"--and it's negatively affecting both you and other people in your life. Maybe you're experiencing something now that you've never faced before, and your normal ways of coping just aren't working as well. Regardless of the reason, I would be honored to aid you in healing.

I work with individuals, couples, and families from all types of backgrounds. I am a very come-as-you-are therapist. Humans are messy and inconsistent, we crave change and also dig our heels in to avoid it. I love to work with people who are willing to examine these inconsistencies, who are open to new perspectives and taking steps to feeling more at peace--even in this truly chaotic time in history!

As a military Chaplain and relationship coach for over 20 years, I have worked with individuals & couples from every demographic. Working together, we have tackled a diverse and comprehensive list of challenges. I have learned from my own life, and decades of clinical experience, that we all have struggles and most often they are a consequence of avoiding emotional/psychological or spiritual pain. My passion is assisting people in their pursuit of purpose, meaning, and healing. I have found that wholeness, restoration, and joy come as we willingly walk the path to healing through the corridor of emotional pain.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Silverdale. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
