The alliance we build as client and therapist is a necessary and very important part of the therapeutic process. I carefully assess each individuals or couples strengths, history of relationships, sense of self, developmental status, learning styles, symptoms and readiness to change. I believe that what you find helpful to talk about in each session is most important. You and I will develop a treatment plan based upon these factors, your experience, my professional experience, research findings and what you would like to accomplish in therapy. I have a general practice and also have areas of specialty.

Healing, growth, and change. Are you wondering if these common outcomes of therapy are actually possible for you, or if therapy works at all? Maybe you have a different set of questions. Can someone really help me overcome this dark depression or intense anxiety? Am I the only one feeling like this? Can our relationship rebound after this betrayal? What's wrong with me/him/her/us? Will I ever be free of this addiction? Why can't they just be happy for me? Questions like these are worthy to ask and it takes courage to seek the answers.

There are many reasons why people come into psychotherapy. These reasons can include depression, anxiety, loneliness, past traumas, loss, emptiness, psychological reactions to medical illness and pain as well as the desire to learn and grow personally and interpersonally. In my experience one's pains and worries decrease during the therapeutic process, and life feels richer, livelier and more manageable. Exploring together in a safe place where there is time to experience one's self in greater depth moves the process forward toward healing.

I believe in people's ability to change. I believe in the innate tendency to heal. I believe that truth is hard-won, life changing, and the great equalizer between our past and our future. Before change can happen, we must accept and forgive ourselves. Choose your present and future by rewriting your past. It's hard work. But it can be the most essential and rewarding work you will ever do in your life. If you are truly ready to live in real-time, I am able to help you accept yourself and to guide the process of change.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Mercer Island, 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 Mercer Island are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Mercer Island. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Mercer Island

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