I have worked for over a decade with clients across the lifespan. Currently I work mainly with adults and couples. My main goal is to first and foremost get an understanding of what someone is struggling with so I can determine how I can best assist them in their therapy process. I pride myself on my ability to meet people where they are at, build a supportive relationship, and help them work towards achieving their goals.

Often personal and professional relationships get complicated and difficult. This results from our patterns of behavior and how we experience the world. Also true, is that we do not easily see what blocks us from having a more fulfilling and meaningful life. The psychotherapy I offer, allows for better understanding of reflexive and often no-longer-helpful reactions and responses which can cause anxious or depressed moods, conflicted relationships and decreased satisfaction in personal and professional relationships. By making a commitment to your well being and by using your therapy, your life can become richer and more meaningful.

Tailoring therapy to each client while creating an environment that enables my clients to feel empowered and confident throughout our work is critical to my approach. Experienced in working with children, adolescents, and adults, Two-Person Psychology and Relational Theory are models where the therapist is part of the therapeutic process, so my clients won't feel alone during our time working together. As a couples therapist, I am trained in Gottman Method Couples Theory: the goals of which are to increase verbal communication, intimacy, and respect to ultimately create empathy and mutual understanding within the relationship.

The type of therapy I practice is about who you are as a person, not just a particular diagnosis you may have. We all struggle at times, whether with unfulfilling relationships, challenges in our professional lives, how we feel about ourselves, or other issues. When we first meet, my goal is to try to understand and appreciate the full context of your situation and not solely the troubling symptoms. I work hard to create a safe, warm, trusting environment. Over time, I'll help you uncover patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may contribute to your current problem.

Maybe you’re going through a stressful transition, burdened by emotional pain, or just have an inkling that life isn’t going “right.” Psychotherapy can help you navigate life’s difficulties and cope more effectively. My focus is to understand your concerns, help you consider underlying causes, work on making better choices and increase your sense of control over unwanted behaviors and thoughts. Regardless of the intensity, severity, and frequency of your concerns, nothing is too small or too big to benefit from psychotherapy.

It is normal to be an imperfect being. Everyone has struggles, low moments, or even sometimes have to divert off course due to unexpected life events. But when its your own thoughts and feelings that are impeding your ability to achieve what you define as "satisfaction" in life- you must take the time to stop, reflect, and possibly change either your approach or alter your perspective. Feel free to book a consultation. However, you do not have to engage a consultation to schedule an in person session. https://www.timetrade.com/book/3FLKG

Are you struggling to have a healthy relationship with yourself or with others? Does it often feel like happiness comes more easily to other people than it does to you? Or that somewhere along the way, you stumbled or lost your way, and are fighting to find it again? Let me assure you that you deserve and are capable of joy and growth. My work has shown me that happiness does not mean feeling "good" all the time, but rather being strong enough to tolerate all that life throws at us. Maybe you have been thrown an awful lot.

Typically individuals come to psychotherapy for relief of emotional and psychological pain, which may take the form of depression, anxiety, self-defeating behavior, and/or unfulfilled relationships or goals, to name a few. Many can identify some past trauma, or perhaps some mistreatment that seems somehow connected. For others the reasons are more elusive, like a general feeling of unhappiness, perhaps with oneself or with others.I strive to help you verbalize your thoughts and feelings about what happens between us in our emerging relationship as a way of understanding your relationships in general.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Washington, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Washington are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Washington. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Washington

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Washington you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Washington and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Washington or family therapy in Washington.
