"Integration of traumatic memories will elicit profound change, and enable us to feel and act from the love that is inherent in all people. I believe we are best able to become more aware of ourselves through studying our relationships. I will work with you to discover how you relate to others; we will study how your brain functions to bring past experiences into the present moment, distorting your sense of self and creating conflict. Clearing trauma can enable you to differentiate between then and now, so you are more free to make conscious choices about how you relate today."

As my background is in client centered and relational therapy, I believe bringing your personal narrative into therapy provides a vehicle for self-discovery. Our narratives help us understand present dysfunctional processes which can leave us stuck in unhealthy patterns and hinder our growth. In working though our stories, we can "unstick" unhealthy processes and journey towards our more functional and authentic selves."

"Where does one begin their search for relief from a vague feeling of discomfort, the source of which is difficult to locate, or from emotional/physical pain that announces itself clearly and loudly, the source being well-known? Perhaps you've tried to think your way through the problem or to read self-help books, and neither have helped. You have the thought that if you reach out to someone, relief may follow as you move from isolation to connection and relationship. So you arrive here and I welcome your call.

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.

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.
