Working together, we can find solutions to the problems or situations causing stress. I find that, for most of my clients, therapy is a short-term need.

Therapy isn't education, and it's not advice-giving. Because people are different, elements of therapy require different healing for different people. It's the ability to speak your mind safely to someone who listens, listens intelligently, and cares is important. I believe a successful counseling experience depends on the therapist ability to understand and respect the unique concerns, background, and context of each patient. I am committed to achieving such an understanding in every counseling relationship.

When I see a new patient for the first time, I try to assess what he or she wants from life or from what each person is struggling. I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work. Often in those situations, I work more intensely and more frequency to search for what is meaning to people and how they wants to navigate in the world in a freer way.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Washington using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Washington are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Washington. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Washington
