I will stimulate, challenge, and support you throughout the therapeutic process. I come from a family systems orientation. I like to involve parents when working with children and adolescents, taking care to maintain the child or teenager’s sense of safety and confidentiality.

There is no one-size fits-all approach to healing. Sometimes you are just a shift-in perspective away from an issue being gone from your life for good. I specialize in helping those with issues of fear, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, health/wellness troubles and addiction, but am available for a wide variety of other issues as well. My therapy programs are specifically tailored and designed to help each individual. Through the sacred process of uncovering, healing and releasing old beliefs, you can re-discover who you really are & find peace, hope and lasting serenity.

At times we all find ourselves in periods of growth that can be challenging and confusing. Growth and change can be difficult but if troubling obstacles are removed, one can move towards a healthier, creative, vibrant life with a new sense of meaning and purpose. I tend to look at symptoms individuals are struggling with as guides showing the changes one needs to make in order to develop into their authentic, creative self. The work I do with client’s is often symbolic and includes dream work, creative expression, deep conversation, lessons from nature, and a deep relational connection that can foster authentic experience.

In my practice I offer mental health education and assessment, a therapeutic healing space, and skill building to assist you with your goals.

Current opening: Mondays 4pm, weekly recurring. I work with individuals & individuals of couples & particularly appreciate working with young adults & elder adults . Emphasis is on building self-efficacy, a positive psychology approach supported by CBT - not only navigating the impact of internal and external weaknesses but also building your strengths - what else is going to bail you when times get rough! And yes, it's OK to have weaknesses. No human is without. To say, "I have weakness," is not to say, "I am weak."

I work with adults striving to respond with integrity and effectiveness to many life issues--particularly related to work, career, relationship, and mid-life challenges. My clients include adults dealing with depression, anxiety, performance impairment, stress-related conditions, as well as those choosing to "raise their game." Regardless of their reason for seeking therapy, many of my clients bring important resources rooted in their personal journey of faith or search for meaning. If spiritual aspects of your life are important, I invite you to share that in our work together.

I provide individual psychotherapy and counseling to adults 18 and older.
Psychotherapy is a process that offers an opportunity to explore and understand yourself and your experiences more deeply. In our earliest relationships, we develop ways of thinking, feeling, and being in relationship with ourselves, others, and the world. Exploring these patterns within the context of a warm and understanding relationship may lead to increased awareness and insight, which in turn can lead to the ability to make conscious choices about our lives and the ways that we relate to ourselves and others.

What type of Puget, Bellingham mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Puget, Bellingham?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
