Therapeutic modalities that inform my practice include attachment, CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic.
I counsel children, teens and their parents, as well as adults and couples who are experiencing a wide range of psychological and relationship difficulties due to parent child conflict, major life transitions, grief and loss and recent or historic trauma. My approach is systemic, meaning that I try to understand human problems in terms of the complex set of psychological and social systems in which they are embedded - family, social, cultural, educational and emotional experiences. I have specialized training and experience in treating anxiety and depression and trauma/PTSD using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

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.

When we struggle with depression, anxiety, pain from the past, or traumatic stress, our relationships struggle too. Often the pain experienced in relationships with our loved ones is what drives us to find relief and solutions from the disconnect and disruption we are in the midst of. We don't just want to feel better, we want to be better: Better to ourselves, better to those we love. Engaging in therapy and neurofeedback is about looking for the solutions that will enable us to move beyond the obstacles and into the connections we really desire.

Life's stressors can be overwhelming. Therapy shows us new ways of being and engaging through practicing adaptive skills and mindfulness. I help my clients uncover connections between past experiences that shape their current ways of coping. This leads to the ability to recognize inner strengths, identify and embrace discomfort, and cultivate self-compassion to find peace and true connection. With empathetic listening in a safe environment, I strive to be my client’s ally. I use cognitive and somatic modalities to connect mind and body and tailor my approach to your needs, even using humor when appropriate!

Sometimes clients who reach out to me are struggling with identifiable issues - depression, anxiety, addictions, stress, grief, life transitions, or illness.

I work with clients who want more satisfaction and meaning in life and relationships. Difficult experiences like anxiety, low mood, ADHD, addictive or compulsive behaviors, transitions, loss, trauma, or relational distress may fuel the desire for a better life. They are open to knowing themselves more deeply--through the heart and felt-sense experience, as well as the intellect. To grow beyond the safety of the familiar self in meaningful ways, they are willing to face some discomfort and vulnerability, and commit to useful behaviors and habits. They value this one precious life they have here, and want to make the best of it.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Poulsbo, 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.
