These days, we're all huddling under COVID's shadow of uncertainty. You may be feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and less tolerant than 'before'. You didn't used to feel so disorganized, disoriented, and discouraged in pre-virus days. Perhaps some symptom you'd forgotten about or pushed aside feels newly offensive. I am a psychoanalytic therapist and my ideal client is ready, curious, persistent, possibly angry, sad, and frightened, but willing to wonder with me about the mind's mysteries and its capacities to tilt, stymie, support, inspire, and surprise you. Is the unconscious friend or foe? Might now be a time to investigate?

The pandemic and "stay at home order" have led many clients to reach out to me for help with feelings of isolation, depression, anxiety, and low motivation. These are scary times for us all and we can all use extra support. I specialize in helping people with relationship issues, anxiety, and trauma. However, with over a decade of experience in mental health, I have worked with many mental health issues and frequently work with depression, stress, addiction, motivation, intimacy, family conflict, life changes/adjustments, grief, communication issues, emotional regulation, parenting, self-esteem, and personal growth and discovery.

For over 30 years I've been helping folks to have better relationships with themselves and others. I'm guided by the belief that most of the time we have our own answers, but sometimes we may need help uncovering or trusting our own judgment. Depending on your needs, we may: 1. work psychodynamically (explore your history and its impact on current life), 2. work cognitive- behaviorally (explore how distorted beliefs affect your feelings & behavior) or, 3. work to resolve abuse by weaving back and forth between the "here & now" and the past.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist working with adults in individual therapy through a relational and psychodynamic approach. These modalities hold that the past informs the present, often setting the template for unconscious patterns of thought, behavior, and relating to others that impact our current relationships, as well as our ability to be productive and fulfilled. Developing deeper understanding about the nature of our problems within the context of an empathic, collaborative therapeutic relationship can lead to increased intellectual and emotional flexibility, healthier relationships, and richer, more satisfying lives.

I know you. You can put on a happy face and convince the world that everything is just fine, but behind your smile is a belief that you are not good enough. You know how to stay hidden in plain sight without exposing your authentic self. The downside? It’s exhausting. You are constantly fighting with yourself, wondering if what you said was “weird” or "too much", believing that other people are judging you as harshly as you judge yourself. You’ve come to believe that you are somehow deficient or unworthy, which pushes you to either over achieve or hide away.

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 and communities, including the BIPOC community in Seattle. 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.
