We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

I strive to make counseling accessible for everyone, especially folks who are exploring it for the first time. If you’re new to counseling, and maybe a little scared or skeptical, I would love to meet with you. And if you’ve been in therapy for years and years and feel like it “hasn’t helped,” I’d love to explore that with you as well. In my perspective (and experience), healing happens in the context of relationship, therefore trust and authenticity are going to be paramount in our connection. I strive to create a judgement-free and compassionate space so that you can be unabashedly real and messily human in our sessions.

I am a seasoned therapist with a solid background of training in counseling psychology and I keep a very enthusiastic learning edge on perspectives and developments in psychotherapy. I can always find a way to generate an earnest and stimulative approach to working with clients in therapy. I believe that persons seeking therapy hope to find someone who has a mature range of life experience, sophisticated knowledge of the therapeutic process, a tested repertoire of counseling skills and the ability to provide the anticipatory guidance that fosters self-determination and meaningful life changes. I am confident I have these attributes.

Across widely varying clients with diverse concerns, the common thread in my therapeutic work is cultivating an innate ability to be present with oneself. In therapy, we pay particular attention and care to the innate strengths and weaknesses used to engage occurrences of suffering and, at times a surprising and unique Self. Using this perspective, we will, together, address what is bothering you.

I treat a wide variety of clients in my practice. I love working with adults struggling with anxiety, depression, and grief and loss issues particularly with mother loss issues. Trauma is also an area of specialty. For clients presenting with trauma, or traumatic aspects to other experiences such as grief and loss I have found the use of EMDR and Trauma Narrative work to be very helpful to my clients. In regard to working with children and adolescents, I believe firmly in working as a team with parents and school staff for the most effective outcomes for children and adolescents.

My practice is about creating space... a relational space to be, to reflect, to see, to heal, and imagine anew. Life can often feel overwhelming or bring feelings of hopelessness, but our inner resources are often more than we are able to imagine in the moment of our distress. New strength and connection can be found in parts of yourself that have been cut off or neglected for various reasons. Often we need the presence of someone, like a therapist, who has the potential to reflect back who we are being and what we might be neglecting, in order to see ourselves more clearly and engage life and relationships more fully.

I enjoy working with individuals who are struggling to become more authentic and present in their lives. Often, they have been marginalized for being "different" from those around them, causing them to deny parts of themselves to "fit in." Many of my clients have experienced emotional, physical, and sexual traumas that caused deep wounds and profound losses. Most find their way to my office after years spent trying to ignore, numb, or avoid the inevitable pain associated with their psychological and emotional wounds. Some also seek my help after more recent disruptions in their lives, such as divorce or immigration.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Seattle, 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 Seattle are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Seattle

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.
