While most change begins with and focuses on you, my experience has been that the maintenance of positive changes both produce and are helped by changes in interpersonal, family, and other systems.
I specialize in holistic, integrated behavioral health promotion. The tools I most often use include cognitive-behavioral treatment, biofeedback training, and hypnosis. I seek to be a change agent working with individuals, couples, families, and organizations. I'm big on developing, revising, and using collaborative (me and you) treatment plans with specific goals and objectives.

You see, this is when couples usually come to see me- in the midst of the birth of their new relationship. And this is when many couples break up or break vows or think about these kinds of things. Love isn't supposed to be this hard or painful. Well, it is my honor and mission to guide couples through this harrowing passage.

I believe many of our hang-ups are related to our family histories and our past experiences but that doesn't mean that the present is ignored.
Are you feeling anxious? Stuck? Having trouble with your spouse, children, parents, friends, colleagues? Things are just not right? Why do it on your own? You need somebody objective and non-judgmental to bounce things off of. Making the decision to call a therapist is tough but it can really make a difference in how you feel and operate in this world. I have been a therapist for over 40 years and I know it really works. My style is warm, interactive and caring and I'm ready to help you tackle your problems.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Washington or for a Washington family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Washington using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

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.
