Not accepting new clients
Closed to new clients. I work with adults who are trying to figure out how to adjust to life today. Many of my clients come from other nations, where the norms are different and people live more communally. Most of my clients also have a history of trauma, narcissistic abuse, or issues stemming deeply from their childhoods. These issues and traumas add a layer of complication to an already challenging day to day life. What all of my clients have in common is that they feel anxious, powerless, or hopeless about their situations. I can help.

Congratulations—-you love yourself enough to get the help you deserve! The stressors and stresses of everyday like can wear us down. From constantly being bombarded with the rings and dings from technological devices to the pressure to work harder and perform better, it can bring us to our breaking point or close to it. How can we operate at our most optimal level if we are overworked and burnt out? Anxiety and Depression comes from not feeling good enough for just being ourselves and trying to live up to society’s expectations.

People seek out therapy for many reasons, but in my experience most patients enter treatment in the middle of something. Perhaps you're wondering why you feel the way you do or have the same distressing thoughts over and over. Some are curious why they can't seem to stop repeating evidently self-defeating patterns of behavior. Maybe you're anxious about a chosen or unchosen life transition. Or you just feel stuck. Therapy can clarify your current situation, help you gain an understanding of how you arrived at this point, and begin to formulate a healthy path forward. I have three orienting goals to my therapeutic approach. First, we will work on generating and expanding moments of your personal freedom. Second, we will cultivate an enhanced understanding of yourself and those around you. And overall, together we will establish meaningful and durable psychological change.

I enjoy helping patients not just survive, but thrive. I believe you can recover from abuse and other traumas, and learn to change negative emotions and thoughts to be your best self. As a health psychologist, I’m fluent in medical terminology and procedures. I can help you manage a new or chronic illness. I also have broad experience working with veterans, law enforcement and the Intelligence Community, so I understand the unique stressors, complexities and requirements of those environments. If you’re a mental health provider or graduate student seeking licensure hours, I provide individual and group supervision at a reduced rate.

Emotional suffering, whether from depression, anxiety, grief or harm and betrayal by others, is often invisible. While you may urgently desire help, shame and fear of exposure may make it difficult to get the help you want. In over thirty years of psychotherapy practice, I have learned to help patients find ways to face their worst fears and feel safer. Even desired change can bring fear of losing yourself. I think honestly confronting loss and limitaion can lead to freer decisons about living your life.

I am a psychodynamic psychologist. As such, I believe that our early experiences shape our later expectations of ourselves and our relationships. I assist patients in examining patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may have begun early in life and continue to generate unhappiness with the goal of helping to relieve the depression and anxiety. As patients gain self-awareness and come to recognize and handle their feelings more adeptly, they often develop a more cohesive identity. While working to mitigate them, I am mindful of understanding what underlies the patient's vulnerability to developing these particular symptoms.

I work collaboratively with my clients to honor who they are, help make sense of their emotional responses to daily experiences, and guide them to become more authentic in their relationships. My approach is nonjudgmental, reflective and oftentimes playful. During our sessions, I help clients make connections between current problems and past struggles. Understanding these patterns builds self-awareness and helps create more adaptive ways of coping with stress and relating to others.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in Washington. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder , whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego. Personality traits related to narcissism include: Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.

Washington narcissism therapists can help work through the issues of being, or knowing, a narcissist. As narcissism counselors in Washington they are experienced in guiding clients in dealing with this disorder.
