"I primarily provide individual therapy to adults (ages 18-45) who wish to address acute or long-term trauma, specifically childhood sexual abuse/sexual assault but other traumas as well. I approach each client through a developmental lens, understanding that concerns manifest differently depending on one's age and developmental stage at the time of the trauma as well as at the time of treatment. I also am available to work with parents, many who are navigating challenges associated with helping a child who has been traumatized, who wish to explore more positive discipline strategies."

"Is your child withdrawn, depressed, or anxious? Is your child misunderstood by a teacher, or regressing to behaviors of a younger child? Does your child have difficulty making or keeping friends? Are you feeling a disconnect between your and your child, or has your child mentioned issues between himself and your spouse? Do you hate to see her suffer? Has your child experienced a major loss, such as divorce? Do you wish you could take away his pain and see him happy for a change?"

I usually work with educated professionals, often multi-cultural or immigrant backgrounds, who struggle with depression, anxiety, eating or autoimmune disorders, trauma (bullying, child abuse, rape, sexual harassment, war trauma, accidents, loss/grief, illness), or dysfunctional family patterns that invade the present. Work with addicts focuses on healing trauma, improving communication/assertiveness, cognitive restructuring, and managing emotions. With my support, clients work towards post divorce adjustment, lessen chronic pain, resume careers, cope with the challenges of being gifted, creative, or talented, and create rich, meaningful lives."

"Things beyond our control in life sometimes shake loose issues that we thought we were past. Coping that has worked before, no longer seems to work or is even now getting in our way in our lives. There are sometimes moments where we can't see beyond the here and now which makes us believe that things will always be the way they currently are. These are pivotal life moments that allow us the opportunity to seek a different path. This may be the time to begin to seek guidance or dig deeper into our issues in order to grow."

Our bodies carry the emotional wounds of the past into our present form, and glimpses of that pain can appear unexpectedly. But we do not have to be prisoners to our histories.

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 Seattle or for a Seattle 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Seattle are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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.
