I specialize in the treatment of trauma, depression, and anxiety in late adolescents, adults and elderly individuals.

I have extensive experience providing PTSD therapy for combat veterans and use that experience when helping individuals recovering from traumatic events. I believe in the capacity for people to heal from trauma. Additionally I have extensive experience working with men on issues such as anger management, relationship challenges, emotional numbing, and employment difficulties.

In therapy, I offer a warm, relational, strength-based approach to counseling, believing whole-heartedly that each story is precious and meant to be heard and regarded. I enjoy supporting children, teens, families and adults in developing positive ways to interact with one another and the world around them. My training is diverse and eclectic. ~~ Please note that, although it's not ideal, at this time I'm offering teletherapy sessions until life returns to normal. Families have still found it to be helpful (and also convenient).

Whether you’re dealing with new stressors or old wounds, therapy can help you feel better. The process of sharing your story in a supportive, non-judgmental setting allows you to untangle it, find the important threads, and weave them together into a stronger, more resilient fabric. This may sound daunting, but you don’t have to do it alone. We’ll roll up our sleeves and work together to clarify what’s most important to you, deepen your understanding of what’s getting in your way, and most importantly, take the steps needed to not just go forward, but to grow forward.

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 goal is to create a place for you to learn about yourself, to explore your strengths, challenges and to notice your part in sustaining harmful patterns in your life. Sometimes these unhelpful patterns come from old defenses that once protected you, but over time they stopped working and instead of doing their original job; now they may limit you. Therapy can be a space for exploring your history and how your beliefs and stories change your perceptions of the world and of who you are.

It's so frustrating to want change and feel stuck. I want you to know there IS a way to change the things you want to change. There is a way to find yourself, trust yourself and care for yourself. Therapy is an opportunity to heal painful wounds and discover why you face the same challenges over and over. No matter the presenting concern: anxiety, depression, loss, or any life transition (major or minor), therapy can be an intensely rewarding and life altering process.

You're struggling to control the negative storyteller in your mind. You imagine catastrophic scenarios linked to everyday moments, actively planning for how people will respond to what you say or do. That inner narrative is draining your mental energy, protecting against something that isn't going to happen. The easy option is to put up walls, blocking people from being able to hurt you. But that only makes you more fearful and lonely. What if you could find a way to have healthy boundaries that allow people to connect with you? A way to relate that feels wonderful?
