Hi, it’s feeling kinda scary out there right now. COVID19, or Corona Virus or that pandemic thing (hey, isn’t that a cooperative board game?). While it’s not in the air, the worries are spreading faster than the virus. At Accent Counseling, we feel you. We’ve put tele-therapy in place, effective now. Most insurance companies are now allowing telehealth due to current events! I’m working from home for the duration of this event. So, go to our website and schedule an appointment. We’d love to connect with you. —Note, you must be physically in the state of Washington to work with us.

My practice is based on the premise that any issue presented in therapy has deep emotional and psychological roots. At times these roots are recognized; mostly, not. The clients who achieve the highest degree of success in terms of resolution of presenting issues, personal growth, life satisfaction, and relationship enhancement are those who are willing to overcome resistance and emotional discomfort in order to root out the painful, dysfunctional origins of their presented issues, The courage, persistence, and resilience displayed during their therapeutic journey serve them well.

My therapeutic approach is best described as eclectic--a unique and constantly shifting balance among the various humanistic schools. Therapy involves multiple levels of interrelated change: emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual. In order to be effective it must revolve around client needs and desires; decisions about counseling goals and practices are therefore developed jointly. I greatly enjoy helping others as they grow, change and heal-both internally and in relation to the people and institutions which fill their lives. I welcome challenge, value collaborative relationships with clients, peers, and community alike, and I maintain a firm belief in the resiliency of all.

Therapy is a creative, supportive, collaborative process that helps us learn new ways of perceiving a problem, develop healthy coping skills, find healthy ways of being with the people in our lives, and learn about ourselves. We might need an empathetic ear, or we might need specific tools. Either way, therapy empowers us and helps us remember our personal strengths and what we stand for. We are all different; each person's gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, race, religion, and health impact how he or she will perceive an issue. I believe the therapeutic approach, like the people who seek therapy, should be unique.

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Bellingham or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Bellingham, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Bellingham.
