These days, we're all huddling under COVID's shadow of uncertainty. You may be feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and less tolerant than 'before'. You didn't used to feel so disorganized, disoriented, and discouraged in pre-virus days. Perhaps some symptom you'd forgotten about or pushed aside feels newly offensive. I am a psychoanalytic therapist and my ideal client is ready, curious, persistent, possibly angry, sad, and frightened, but willing to wonder with me about the mind's mysteries and its capacities to tilt, stymie, support, inspire, and surprise you. Is the unconscious friend or foe? Might now be a time to investigate?

My clients are usually seeking my end-of-life services where I provide healing touch work &/or forgiveness work, emotional support, help with legacy projects, or simply creating sacred, comfortable space at the end of life. Sometimes they are the family or loved ones of the dying who want my care & to be educated about end-of-life comfort & to have someone present to sit vigil & assist in as peaceful a transition as possible. Often clients are interested in deepening the connection with Life itself & whatever they call the creator. My hypnotherapy sessions help to develop & strengthen that vital connection for peace & meaning.

I believe therapy can hold the key to processing the suffering that life brings. Often when there is trauma, change or transitions in life it can cause feelings of helplessness, confusion and despair. I believe processing these events and how they are connected to your thoughts, feelings and actions can bring about self-insight and healing. My approach is client centered and strength based utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy and cognitive processing therapy. My goal is to walk alongside you and facilitate a safe place for you to engage with the work of untethering yourself to the things that no longer serve you.

For over 30 years I've been helping folks to have better relationships with themselves and others. I'm guided by the belief that most of the time we have our own answers, but sometimes we may need help uncovering or trusting our own judgment. Depending on your needs, we may: 1. work psychodynamically (explore your history and its impact on current life), 2. work cognitive- behaviorally (explore how distorted beliefs affect your feelings & behavior) or, 3. work to resolve abuse by weaving back and forth between the "here & now" and the past.

As a board-certified Couple and Family Psychologist, I focus on relationships and the big picture. If you’re someone who has spent many hours learning about yourself and why you are the way you are, you might be shouldering shame and doubt that seem to drain the color out of your life. You have the insight and skill to move toward commitment and self-respect, but are sometimes too overwhelmed. Instead of just problem-solving, let’s move toward the big picture – the place where you can thrive instead of survive, have nurturing and nourishing relationships, and realize the profound potential in your own/family/romantic/work life.

Sometimes feelings and behaviors become obstacles to accessing your strength. If you don't accept yourself as you are, you can't change--a paradox, but true. Self-acceptance can be difficult, especially with history of abuse, trauma, or opression in which shame/guilt become integral to your sense of self. Destructive behavior, in whatever form, has its own logic, but is understandable given your history. We cope in ways that serve to protect ourselves in childhood--serving a useful purpose back then. But now, they prevent you from having stable, close relationships and feeling an empowered sense of self.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Seattle, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Seattle listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Seattle are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Seattle. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Seattle

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Seattle you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Seattle and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Seattle or family therapy in Seattle.
