It's my job is to walk beside the client at their pace in order to see their world. Using a cognitive-behavioral approach in therapy means clients not only uncover insights about themselves but they also learn about changes needed to reach their desired goals. My clients leave with numerous tools to utilize throughout their lives. People are inspiring creations to me, I love working with people, regardless of their issues, and believe each of us has the power to shape our own future into whatever we desire. Personalized solutions are critical for the success of each individual, couple and family.

As a dual diagnosis/co-occurring psychotherapist, (licensed mental health counselor and licensed substance use disorder professional) my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges. By applying specific therapeutic approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life and incorporate healthy coping skills.

I have been a mental health therapist for over 24 years. As a therapist, I have found people want to feel empowered to manage their own life. I work with clients to learn to manage emotions and negative thoughts that are running their lives. I teach clients to learn to respond to people and situations and not to react to them. I am a DialecticaI Behavior Therapist (DBT) . I have also received extensive training in cognitive and behaviors therapies to work with people who experience depression and anxiety. In addition, I completed my dissertation on the attention system and working memory. This makes me qualified to evaluate and help people who experience learning disabilities and problems with their attention and memory.

It seems the things that can bring us lasting joy are the things we have to work to achieve. We are all unique in history. Where we come from, which family, which culture, impacted who we are and who we will or have become.Yet, all of us are the same in that we need human interaction. We come into this world seeking others, touch, interaction. We are neither meant to be or have to be completely alone.

The common misconception is that therapy is for "crazy" or "sick" people. Instead I believe it is a chance to work with clients on how to use their challenges as opportunities for change and growth. It is also a time to better understand our view of the world, examine any relationship issues, and become better versions of ourselves. I focus on each individual's unique characteristics, instead of what a diagnosis may say about them.

Some people ask why I became a couples therapist, and my response is: "I was born a therapist." I enjoy the uniqueness of each client and their situation, how they have attempted to solve their problems, and how they are stuck. There are many situations that are similar among clients, but the interplay with each individual and their situation is infinite. Congruency for me is key. Being the person I ask others to be, holding each person with tenderness and creativity while we move toward their goals is transformative in the therapeutic process.

Offering Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) to treat PTSD in Seattle and Bellevue, Washington. The stellate ganglion is a control center for the sympathetic nervous system and a conduit for PTSD triggers. SGB is low risk and uses a thin needle to block the sympathetic nervous system contribution in PTSD patients, so triggers can be reduced or even eliminated. With a reduction in sympathetic overdrive, patients are better able to engage in the psychological work related to trauma events and PTSD. **SGB is an adjunct treatment to be used in addition to traditional mental health care. It is not intended as the sole treatment for PTSD.**
