To quote Søren Kierkegaard, "The most common form of despair is not being who you are." Painful experiences can leave us feeling broken, small, disoriented, without words, stagnant and isolated. It can be hard to ask for help, but you might be relieved to know that psychotherapy is not about pinpointing or exploiting what's wrong with you. It is about becoming who you really are. We all need safe spaces to breathe, process emotion, move, find stillness, to feel seen, understood and to form language around what has happened to us; to find connection and to integrate our emotional, cognitive and physical experiences.

The decision to start therapy is not always an easy one to make. It’s very common to have many questions about starting and or understanding how the process works. I greatly value the importance of providing you with a space in which you can feel safe, emotionally validated, and free from judgment. I work to provide you with a relational experience that is both authentic and compassionate in nature. I believe an important element in your success is working together to help facilitate new insights, healthier ways of thinking, and relating to yourself and others.

My therapeutic philosophy is simple: you are not broken but impacted by the experiences of your life which have resulted in a foundation that has left you feeling shaky or uncertain. with each challenge in life, you may feel as though you are falling apart, losing hope, as though you do not belong, or even feel unworthy of the love you deserve; however, with hope, patience, and self-perseverance, you can find a way to hold yourself together, to stand tall, firm, and trust that your foundation will support you—ultimately, you will begin to believe in yourself.

It isn't always easy being young, especially for children, teens, and young adults who are struggling. Nor is it easy for parents to watch their children struggle. I have 9 years of graduate training focused on treating mental health disorders in children, teenagers, and young adults. I've had the honor of supporting many young people on their journey, and the privilege of supporting parents as well. In addition to therapy I specialize in assessment, with a focus on complex diagnostic assessment. These evaluations yield high quality recommendations that help children, teens, and young adults thrive across settings.

I provide psychotherapy to individuals and families to promote growth and empowerment through supportive listening, mindfulness, and examination of past experiences, allowing clients to cultivate insight and bring about lasting change. I use a collaborative and dynamic approach that incorporates multiple theoretical approaches and techniques to meet both individual and family needs and preferences. I believe that insight alone does not bring about change; rather, we must do something different to become something different. I offer compassion, humor, honesty, and straightforward feedback while I empower individuals and families to explore their own goals and work toward growth and healing.

Serving people for 30 years in various settings (hospitaIs, schools, outpatient), I have learned what skills, attitudes, and attributes contribute to our sense of well-being and purpose and what boosts our confidence in handling life challenges. Youth as well as adults will understand the connection between feelings, behaviors and thoughts and modify those that don't work well for them. Whether a crisis, divorce, or relationship problem at home or school, difficulty being the parent or partner you wish, or self-sabotaging behaviors, I will help you harness these situations, and use them as springboards to becoming the person you most want to be.

We are often so critical of ourselves, while with a friend we would be kind, supportive, compassionate. My 20+ years of experience have given me the tools to work using an eclectic approach that I tailor to each client. I offer a comfortable, safe environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings, where you can feel heard, understood and validated.

We are learning that T/trauma is at the root a majority of suffering. With this, the possibility for healing, freedom, growth grows. Seeking support is the most courageous and resilient action you can take. The stigma about "therapy" being for people that are somehow "weak" or "broken" is rapidly falling apart in light of the truth that weakness and brokenness more often stem from the choice to not seek support. The myths and stigmas surrounding healing ("therapy") are rapidly deteriorating as many come to see that a more joyful life is possible.

Traditional psychotherapy works toward congruence in a persons thinking, emotions, actions, and life choices. Body-oriented therapy understands that the body is also profoundly affected by our life experiences. Identifying and releasing attitudes and old images held in our physical structure adds an important component to therapy. This promotes lasting change, allowing for free flow of life energy from within us so we can more fully realize our life, our joy. I am also founder of the Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy, and enterprise of Body-Psychotherapy of Seattle.

I work with professional adults of all ages in individual and group psychotherapy. It’s common to not feel heard or understood well enough in life. And yet, the experience of being heard and understood by another person is how we come to know ourselves and to make changes. Our lives can be so busy and full of distraction that it may be hard to imagine slowing down enough to find this kind of relationship. But psychotherapy is exactly that: a collaborative relationship in which the focus is on your experience in the world, your relationships and inner life, and what you need or want to change.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in Seattle. 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.

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