I work with child , teen, and young-adult issues (kids ages 8 and up, tweens, teens, college-age adults) as well as adults.
My desire is to create an experience of safety, empathy, healing, and growth, one in which you will feel supported and comfortable in exploring what has brought you to therapy. People and needs are unique. We might need an empathetic ear or specific tools to work through a problem. We might need specific approaches such as EMDR to help us heal from difficult experiences. Therapy helps us discover and connect to our personal strengths, and I believe it is most effective when it is customized to meet the unique needs and desires of each individual client. I draw from several resources and approaches to accomplish this.

As a Clinical Social Worker and Certified Child Life Specialist, I strive to ensure that youth, adults, and families have the internal and external resources necessary to adapt to life's challenges.
Resilience: “The capacity of a person to maintain their core purpose and integrity in the face of dramatically changed circumstances.” Resilience, at its core, relates to the process of adapting to challenging circumstances. Adaptation does not necessarily mean letting go of past experiences, challenges, or losses, but rather the act of learning to live with pain in a manner that allows you to survive. In seeking support, you are doing just that. Welcome to Resilience Counseling, PLLC.

Hi, I'm Ryan and I am currently accepting new clients for individual or child and family counseling. I love to see people heal, grow, and thrive. Many individuals and families I've worked with have experienced trauma or loss and they often feel hopeless about any realistic and practical solutions to life's problems. They are looking for help with issues such as deep seated anger, uncontrolled urges/desires, anxiety, fear, depression, relational conflict, and emotional detachment. My goal is to provide a refuge where clients can talk safely and honestly and experience genuine transformation.

Families are constantly growing and evolving. You've seen it as parents: once you think you have something figured out, your child goes and changes it up and the cycle begins again. During this process it's common for families to get stuck. You've run out of ideas or are too emotionally drained to find a solution. I'm here to help guide your family through those sticky times. I work with children , adolescents, adults and families. I specialize in anxiety, depression, social concerns, family issues, sensory integration and emotional regulation. I will provide gentle encouragement to assist in your process towards change

Life can be challenging. Being an adult is challenging. We grow up imagining our ideal selves only to find that the world gives us obstacles along the way. Sometimes we are prepared for them; sometimes we are not. It can be hard to adjust, change directions, and repair or rebuild our lives. Whether it be a romantic relationship, friendships, issues with co-workers, or raising children , no one is built to face everything alone. . We all desire to be heard, valued, appreciated, and loved. We want to express ourselves, be seen for our authentic self, and be able to communicate and uphold boundaries to get our needs met.

My practice is child -centered and family-focused.
We all go through hard times, and having someone in our corner can help us navigate them. Youth and adolescents especially need a space to connect and process through their relationships and struggles. It is in this safe space that children and youth can begin to build skills and correct behavior that may seem concerning or perplexing.

I'm going to introduce myself with a silly statement: I am not a wizard. I can't magically make your 10-year-old behave perfectly, your teen want to talk to you, or make your parents understand and appreciate you. I can, however, be an empathetic listener for children , adolescents, and young adults and help to provide context and understanding for thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may feel or seem perplexing. I provide tools, resources, and an environment in which change for the better is possible.

What type of 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 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.
