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?

I am a licensed psychotherapist in the state of Washington. I work with adults, couples and teens who are at a place in their life where they are wanting or needing to make a change, but sometimes not sure how to go about it. My approach encourages clients to take responsibility for their lives but also helps to uncover what obstacles have gotten in the way of them feeling powerful, happy, and in charge of their direction in life.

I believe that individuals and couples seek counseling and therapy for one primary reason: a desire for something to be different in their lives. Thus, I focus on helping people (1) identify differences they are seeking in their lives and relationships and then (2) developing the skills and internal capacities to make these differences a reality. For some, this involves changing ineffective behavior patterns; for others, it means treatment for depression, anxiety or other emotional/psychological blocks that hamper living a full and engaged life. What do you want to be different for yourself in your life?

Experiencing anxiety is a normal part of life, but sometimes it can start taking over your life, and this is when therapy can help. Sometimes it is hard to know what to do, or hard to do what we want when we are overwhelmed by certain fears, feelings or ideas. This too is when therapy can help. Whether you or your child is experiencing anxiety that is causing distress and limiting life, I would love to work with you. I believe therapy is a collaborative process, which will be driven by your needs, desires, and motivations.

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.

As a board-certified psychoanalyst social worker, I help individuals work through depression and anxiety, traumas, personality disorders, and general problems in living. The conflicts or stuck feelings that bring a person to therapy tell us about internal experiences that need to be acknowledged and understood. Our problems are often the result of patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that can be addressed in therapy.

My therapeutic style is integrative: I draw from a variety of fields of psychology, including psychodynamic, relational, and cognitive-behavioral. Through therapy, we will work together to understand both the origins of presenting issues; clarifying why we act and feel the way we do, and why certain thought and behavioral patterns persist.

People often come to therapy struggling with a particular feeling, relationship, or question that they can't seem to escape no matter what they do. Why? Research shows us that our struggles are typically about far more than they appear on the surface. Often the problems of our present are deeply rooted in our pasts and the lessons we learned from our families, cultures, and formative experiences. Yet, many are unaware of the learned assumptions that govern their lives, even when they get in their way.

It can be difficult to start therapy, especially during this unprecedented pandemic. Often coupled with a desire for change can be confusion, frustration, or feeling stuck, with little idea what to do next. Whatever your reasons, this is an honest place to be, and making the decision to start therapy is a courageous one. It can help to speak with someone that can gently guide you. I provide a space that is warm and compassionate, where you are accepted as you are. I view therapy as a space to become more aware of yourself, your relationships, and your life experience.

I work with individuals ages 18 and up, as well as couples and parents. I believe symptoms are a request from the psyche to grow -- whether this manifests as depression, anxiety, or just a feeling that you want more from your life or your relationships. Or you may be experiencing a transition, grief, or loss and need support to navigate this change. Therapy creates a space in which healing and growth can happen. I believe humans have a natural, inherent tendency toward health and self-actualization. We are hard-wired to live good and meaningful lives, but sometimes need support to do so.

Sometimes our old ways of coping no longer work for us. We are ready for less stress and more happiness, but aren't sure how to get there. I will support you to identify, explore, and remove obstacles to your wellbeing, unleashing your innate capacity for healing, resilience, and joy. Without awareness of our current experience (mental, physical, emotional and behavioral), we easily fall into old ways of coping that no longer support our mental/physical/emotional health. Mindfulness helps us develop clarity to recognize unskillful patterns, offers us freedom to choose our responses and empowers positive changes in our lives.

Peer Relationships in Madison Valley, Seattle

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Madison Valley, Seattle

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Madison Valley, Seattle

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject.

Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.
