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?

What would it feel like to have less distress and more hope in your life? You may be feeling anxious. Worried. Fearful. Confused. Overwhelmed. Perhaps you are trying to make sense of a troubled relationship or grieving the loss of someone (or something) significant in your life.

When you seek to find your most authentic self, amazing opportunities and experiences are possible in your life. I'd like to help you get there. Depression, anxiety, difficult relationships, and stress often interfere with keeping connected with ourselves and our loved ones. I believe people simply want to resolve conflicts, find more and deeper connections with others, find some relief from pain, and feel better about themselves.

I believe we all are born with the capacity to live full and rewarding lives. In life's many challenges we sometimes can get to a place where we feel overwhelmed or "stuck". Counseling can help get you back on track with facing those challenges and creating the life you want. I can provide a unique safe space to explore your difficult feelings and experiences. That space has the power to be tremendously healing--and within it, I can help you discover new ways of relating to your thoughts, your feelings and the world around you.

My approach to Mental Health Counseling is to view the client as expert in their own life. I do not play the role of expert in my client's lives. I do, however act as a guide, advocate, educator, and support person. What I will do is attempt to see your issues from your perspective and your view of the world. I work within the framework of Person-Centered Therapy, which focuses on the client being the expert, Existential Therapy, which focuses on behavior and looks at how the client thinks, feels, and behaves and the impact they have on others.

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.

Sometimes feelings and behaviors become obstacles to accessing your strength. If you don't accept yourself as you are, you can't change--a paradox, but true. Self-acceptance can be difficult, especially with history of abuse, trauma, or opression in which shame/guilt become integral to your sense of self. Destructive behavior, in whatever form, has its own logic, but is understandable given your history. We cope in ways that serve to protect ourselves in childhood--serving a useful purpose back then. But now, they prevent you from having stable, close relationships and feeling an empowered sense of self.

Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Seattle and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

If you're looking for help with self esteem in Seattle or for a Seattle self esteem therapist, these professionals provide therapy for self esteem. They include self esteem therapists in Seattle, self esteem psychologists, self esteem psychotherapists and self esteem counselors in Seattle. They can help with counseling for self esteem in Seattle or self esteem counseling and treatment for self esteem.
