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?

When you seek to find your most authentic self, amazing opportunities and experiences are possible in your life. I'd like to help you get there. Depression, anxiety, difficult relationships, and stress often interfere with keeping connected with ourselves and our loved ones. I believe people simply want to resolve conflicts, find more and deeper connections with others, find some relief from pain, and feel better about themselves.

I believe we all are born with the capacity to live full and rewarding lives. In life's many challenges we sometimes can get to a place where we feel overwhelmed or "stuck". Counseling can help get you back on track with facing those challenges and creating the life you want. I can provide a unique safe space to explore your difficult feelings and experiences. That space has the power to be tremendously healing--and within it, I can help you discover new ways of relating to your thoughts, your feelings and the world around you.

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.

My approach to Mental Health Counseling is to view the client as expert in their own life. I do not play the role of expert in my client's lives. I do, however act as a guide, advocate, educator, and support person. What I will do is attempt to see your issues from your perspective and your view of the world. I work within the framework of Person-Centered Therapy, which focuses on the client being the expert, Existential Therapy, which focuses on behavior and looks at how the client thinks, feels, and behaves and the impact they have on others.

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.

Peer Relationships in 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 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 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. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. 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.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in Seattle or for a Seattle peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in Seattle and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Therapists, peer relationship psychologists in Seattle and peer relationship counselors.
