Announcement icon I am using a telehealth company to conduct video sessions and have closed my office in downtown Seattle.
You might be feeling stuck in your life, or perhaps struggling to be happy, to be connected with others, to be free of anxiety. I am experienced in treating anxiety, depression and life transitions, in addition to identifying ways of being that keep you from moving forward in life. Your commitment to the difficult and sometimes painful work of looking honestly at your issues is made easier in the safe accepting environment I provide. We might even find ourselves celebrating your increased freedom to be yourself with joy and ease!
I work with individuals, couples and families. I am experienced helping those with trauma whether it happened early in life or more recently.I also am experienced with helping famiiles and couples grapple with their relationships, with setting appropriate boundaries while being able to experience authentic intimacy.
I can help you to broaden your awareness of your relational patterns.These patterns and ways of coping became important and creative survival techniques in early life that developed because you were strong enough to adapt in needed ways. As adults however these patterns are often barriers to authentic relating.
