Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive one, although you may have questions or anxieties around it. Therapy provides an opportunity to reflect on where you are, where you want to be, the way you are living and the choices you are making. At certain points in life we all can feel stuck, face challenges, experience frustrations and a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives. Therapy offers you a private, confidential space to explore, reflect and be heard, to gain clarity, and challenge yourself.

Seeking therapy can be both a daunting process, and one step toward greater wholeness/healing. Relationship is where we are both wounded and healed. I work with individuals seeking relief from distressing symptoms such as; demanding too much of yourself, finding it hard to trust self, your experience, your mind, self-soothing through addictive behaviors, pleasing others at your own expense, anxiety, depression, PTSD. Our patterns of relating develop early within our first attachments, so our journey might include visiting some of those relationships to wonder how they impact you in the here and now.

Are you wondering if psychotherapy may help? Many, many clients have discovered that speaking to another about their stresses and symptoms, in a safe and non-judgemental place, alleviates their anxiety or depression. This is because it is easy to feel overwhelmed alone by the many difficult feelings and confusing thoughts and because another mind and heart can clear the way for deeper understanding, support and healing. I encourage you to take the step to call.

Depression, anxiety, and the impact of trauma in our life and story often prevents us from living the life we yearn for. Martin Buber once said, “All real living is meeting.” We humans seem built for connection, for meeting, for encounter. We thrive when we are able to deeply see and be seen by another. Yet, all humans also experience barriers to connection. How can psychotherapy help? Psychotherapy can become a place to experience belonging and attunement, to discover ways there have been maladaptive patterns of disconnection in your life, and to imagine new ways of living that will bring you relational healing.

I work with men and the people in their lives. The main problem for fathers, sons and husbands/partners is isolation and the ethic that says, "I can do it on my own." For some men, talking with a therapist goes against their instincts. It doesn't take courage; it just requires knowing that you need help and taking the first step. Therapy is a collaborative relationship that puts the focus on you, your experience in the world, and how you'd like things to be different.

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.
