I also have specialized experience in helping people facing the unique challenges of acute and chronic illness , especially cancer.
All people experience problems and at times we all need someone that we can trust to assist us with those challenges. As a therapist, my approach is accepting, empathetic, and flexible, and I strive to form a relationship with my clients that is built on trust and respect. I believe in working collaboratively with my clients, together identifying the growth and change that they desire for their lives. I work to help my clients uncover their internal resources and strengths and expand their understanding of their experiences in order to empower them to make the changes that they desire.

Life is hard. Sometimes simply existing is hard. The amount of energy it takes to even appear like you are doing well can feel exhausting. To the world around you, you may look competent, successful and happy. Inwardly you are stressed most of the time, trying to keep it together and don’t know how to dig out of this hole. To the broken hearted, beat down, traumatized, marginalized, forgotten about or neglected people I am searching for you.

Feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or unmotivated? Like something's off that you can't quite put your finger on? Maybe a recent stressor has left you spiraling or something from your past won't stay buried and you are looking for relief from the weight of your emotions. Therapy can be a refuge where you can feel safe to be vulnerable, fully seen, and heard. Beginning counseling is a courageous step towards growth and healing. A journey that you don't have to go on alone. Together we will co-create a safe space to explore what is holding you back and what you need to move forward with greater confidence and purpose.

Often I hear from clients that they just don't feel like themselves anymore and they are just going through the motions of life; does this sound like you? Our mental wellness and our journey in achieving it can be challenging and sometimes confusing, but finding relief and becoming the version of yourself you long to be does not have to be done alone.

Our lives are often impacted by forces beyond our control. We wonder if life will ever return to "normal." I work with young and old who encounter challenges common to modern living: Retirement, work stress, family dynamics, personal tragedy, financial troubles, loss of community, and loss of direction. I also address unique challenges associated with aging: Chronic and acute illness, life partner debilitation, and hardships unforeseen. Refocus and reclaim your strengths and life as we work together on insights, new strategies and skills that enable you to overcome obstacles, re-connect with life and your passions.

"What is within you that longs to come forth, what waits for you to say Yes?" In my work with clients we work together as a team to create a mutual, shared space of compassion, caring and healing. In this space, problems are explored together, losses and hurts are held together. Where there is trauma, it is transformed through bodily-centered somatic therapy and EMDR. I bring a wide array of therapeutic techniques, from ancient wisdom traditions to cutting edge neurobiology, to support your healing and provide practical skills for reaching your goals. Whatever difficulties you face - healing is the rule, not the exception.

What type of Bremerton 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Bremerton?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
