With therapy, it's all about the fit. There is no "one size fits all" approach. I focus on the person, not the diagnosis. My goal is to assist clients in reaching their personal and professional goals in a safe and confidential environment where they feel understood and heard. With over 15 years experience in "Corporate America" before transitioning to a career in therapy, I am equipped to offer personal life experience to my clients in order for them to develop healthier coping skills and work through unresolved issues.

Whether you’re experiencing anxiety/stress, a difficult relationship, or challenging life transition, you don’t have to do it all on your own. In my work as a licensed psychotherapist and certified professional coach, I work with individuals in midlife (from 30s through 60s) who are committed, resilient and striving to have their best life. Perhaps they’re facing a personal tragedy, grief & loss, divorce, empty nest, hard career issues and setbacks, health crises, or unsettling ”now what?” feelings with retirement. They contact me when their own coping strategies have run short - and seek support to help make things better.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Washington, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Washington are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Washington

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Washington you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Washington and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Washington or family therapy in Washington.
