Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive one, although you may have questions or anxieties around it. Therapy provides an opportunity to reflect on where you are, where you want to be, the way you are living and the choices you are making. At certain points in life we all can feel stuck, face challenges, experience frustrations and a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives. Therapy offers you a private, confidential space to explore, reflect and be heard, to gain clarity, and challenge yourself.

Recognizing the need to work on a problem demonstrates courage. Perhaps you are out of ideas for how to cope with a troubled marriage or a strained relationship with your child or teen. Maybe you are depressed or anxious and nothing you've tried has helped. You might have a vision of how you want life to change, but need a calm and supportive place to work out how to get there. In times like these, you want someone to understand you, help you remember your strengths, and offer some new options.

Therapy works best when it is tailored to your needs. My job is to provide a safe and welcoming place for you to show up just as you are, to feel heard and supported, and to work through the issues that are causing distress. Sometimes we know why we are feeling what we are feeling and sometimes we don’t—both are great places to start therapy. Together we can explore what is happening in your life and find solutions that best suit you. I enjoy working with teens and adults on a wide range of issues and most recently spent time working with adolescents as a school-based therapist in middle school and high school.

I became a therapist late in life after many silent Buddhist meditation retreats. The therapy changes as I learn and grow along with you. Most of the work is done in the present moment and is little dependent on our past. The work usually goes quickly and very directly... but sometimes we need to go slow. A typical successful series might be 6 or 8 meetings. We can meet online or by simple telephone. Phone sessions are often as effective as face-to-face. Stress is increasing for many of us and mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) is another important area of work for which I'm certified and experienced.

It is a really hard time in our world to be a kid or teen right now. It's also a really challenging time to be a parent or caregiver trying to figure out how to best help and support your child/teen (and yourself also!). We have all taken a deep dive into the unknown as we are trying to piece together some semblance of a "normal" life and routine for our families. I continue to see kids, teens, and their grownups frequently struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, and isolation. Families are also struggling to manage day to day healthy relationships living under the same roof more now than ever before.

Negative beliefs about ourselves, our relationships and our place in the world present obstacles that sometimes feel immovable. They can keep us from finding self-acceptance, mutual love and understanding--a general sense of well-being. We feel halted in our life goals or stifled in relationships.

To quote Søren Kierkegaard, "The most common form of despair is not being who you are." Traumatic and painful experiences can leave one feeling broken, small, disoriented, without words, stagnant and isolated. It can be hard to ask for help, but you might be relieved to know that psychotherapy is not about pinpointing or exploiting what's wrong with you. It is about becoming who you really are. We all need safe spaces to breathe, think, feel, express, move and be seen; to begin forming language around our experiences and to find reconnection and integration to and between our emotional, cognitive and physical bodies.

Dialectical (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Seattle or for a Seattle DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Seattle and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Seattle are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Seattle

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Seattle you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Seattle and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Seattle or family therapy in Seattle.
