As a parent to a struggling teen, you're wondering how you can help them feel better. It seems like you've tried everything, from punishing them to bribing them, but nothing seems to work for long. While things are not great right now, you are starting to see signs that it is getting worse like scars from where they may be cutting themselves, or you think they may be using drugs/alcohol. You've tried to talk to them about this but it quickly turns into an argument. You're hoping you can find someone that can connect with them, help them learn how to get through these difficult years, and also keep you informed along the way.

Moving towards healing is an important, yet scary, step to take. My experience includes treating anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma and abuse, self-harming behaviors, codependency, relationship issues and eating disorders.

Glad you are here! I have worked with children, teens and adults who suffer from selective mutism, depression, anxiety, and trauma. This back and forth of battling within, struggling to function in the environment, then feeling guilty or dread or paralyzed brings in the extra heavy load that can feel unbearable. It's tempting to beat ourselves up and be disappointed when our society expects us to fix these symptoms immediately in order for us to resume to our daily lives. This is where I would like to start with you, then identify the nature of its symptoms, identify the right intervention and journey through this process with you.

Creating an engaged therapeutic relationship is where we start. I became a therapist because I believe in the power of relationships. Moved by my own experiences, I wanted to guide others to push past perceived limitations, obstacles, and fear to live a full and meaningful life. We all have the ability to grow, heal, and move forward. I have over 20 years of experience providing individual and group therapy, focusing on parent coaching, family systems work, and navigating depression and anxiety. I have sat across and heard many stories of loss and courage with an open heart - let's work together to explore yours.

Sorry! I'm not taking new clients right now. When depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or current and past trauma are affecting your life, finding a counselor who "fits" you can be an additional challenge. My approach begins with establishing a relationship of trust with you as the foundation of working together to find a path through life's difficulties. My goal is to provide a safe, respectful and accepting space in which you can move, with your own wisdom, toward healing, growth, or change. I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds: teens, adults, couples and families in Spanish or English.

I genuinely love working with children, adolescents and families who are struggling with the tasks required to get through a day to those who have "tried everything" and feel lost. Or, individuals and families who are facing a crisis or transition and do not know how to navigate their way, much less help their children. I work together with my clients to identify barriers and the path forward so they can function effectively in their day to day and feel successful in what they do and how they engage.

I am accepting new clients. My clients are children, families, and adults. Children clients may present with behavior problems that are either internalized or externalized and are brought into therapy by a concerned caregiver. Children may be depressed, withdrawn, angry, defiant, or underachieving. Therapy with children is very different than therapy with adults and require an approach that is developmentally appropriate. Adult clients are often motivated into therapy with intrapersonal or interpersonal issues. I provide a confidential, safe place to explore family history, and solutions that feel right for you.

Self-Harming Therapists
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Bellevue or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Bellevue therapists provide counseling for self harming in Bellevue. They include therapists, who understand self harming in Bellevue, psychologists and counselors. They can provide self harming counseling in Bellevue or treatment for self harming.
