Hi y'all, I am honored you are taking steps toward empowering yourself! Suffering is an inherent part of life. Hardships in isolation, in aloneness or toxic relations, forms habitual patterns of trauma that can degrade our potential for living and loving. Yet when supported in holistic and compassionate relationships, our past pains have the potential to become present healings. Our trauma responses become wisdom to learn from, and our relationships become integrative dances of healing self and others. Together we can create a therapeutic relationship to unlearn traumatic patterns, empowering a thriving and flourishing life for you.

I have helped clients engage and integrate helpful ways of looking at themselves and their world with resiliency and confidence. Those who have in some way witnessed abuse, major losses, or other overwhelming events often experience anger, depression, sleep disorders, new fears, and troubled relationships. The effects of trauma can impact victims long after the incident. Trauma victims have difficulty expressing their experiences directly and effectively through words. I am passionate about healing mind, body and spirit and truly care about my clients well being.

For 25 years I worked with over 16,000 suicidal patients on the mental health unit of St. Francis Hospital with my office partner, Dr. Sunida Bintasan, Adolescent/Child Psychiatrist (who also works with adults). From observing their common patterns, I created an educational program (for persons with issues of deep despair, hopelessness, depression, recurrent suicidal thinking) called Contextual-Conceptual Therapy (CCT). Combining expressive arts techniques, education, and therapy using "maps, models, & metaphors", it helps clients discover the roots of their suicidal thinking/ deep despair to develop healthier relationships.

Traveling the world has offered a perspective that I use as a tool to support clients. A trusted psychologist tries to remind others of their strengths, how to center, and maintain self-regulation. My work in the field began at the age of 17 when I started volunteering in a children's mental health department of a hospital.

My counseling approach is to first help you clarify your presenting problems from an integrated mind-body-environment perspective. I utilize mindfulness to help you to develop clarity in the present moment, and art therapy and focusing-oriented psychotherapy to help you explore and embrace your inner wisdom and natural capacity for healing. Through CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and DBT (dialectical behavior therapy), we can compose an action plan together to develop new coping skills and better support your recovery. When working with children, I utilize art therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness approaches, children focusing techniques, and sensory integration concepts from my occupational therapy experience.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Bainbridge Island or for a Bainbridge Island play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
