One of the biggest challenges is finding the “right” therapist in a sea with many options and approaches. Building a treatment relationship of connection, trust and understanding between each client and myself is of the utmost importance. I am a seasoned psychologist who is committed to being a guide for my clients as they move through the struggles, fears, anxieties and pain that have held them back in their life and their relationships. Over the last two years I have started training in IFS (Internal Family Systems) Therapy. This has been a game changer for me and my clients in overcoming long standing issues.

I believe that each person strives to feel contentment and become the best version of themselves. This can mean something different to each person, which is why I enjoy the diversity that each individual brings to therapy. It is exciting to watch the growth that individuals experience with some guidance and support. I specialize working with mood disorders & trauma. Trauma is any experience that has overwhelmed your ability to cope and has impacted how you now perceive yourself and the world around you. We can work together to heal and grow past previous experiences so that you can be the best version of yourself

My overall approach is collaborative and client-centered, with a commitment to anti-oppression in every facet of my work. I believe, with warm, respectful, authentic support, every person has the ability to identify inner resources and acquire skills that will empower them to find healing and fulfilling relationships to self and others. My style is compassionate and appropriately direct. While I find exploration of the past useful, I prefer to use the 'here-and-now' to realize and effect change.

As the days are getting shorter, we tend to turn inward. Crysalis is defined as a transitory state; a protective covering; a sheltered state or stage of being or growth. I am a navigator that can assist one during various types of transitions. I promote a sense of security and a safe place as you sort through stressors and past traumas that prevent you from thriving and living a meaningful life. In our work together we will identify distressing emotions and process those through to fruition; notice potential thinking errors that are limiting your happiness and look for ways to increase your experiences of joy.

As a parent you have to be on all the time, it can be overwhelming! For parents who have lived through trauma or adversity it feels impossible. You may be fed up with being stressed or triggered all the time, feeling anxious, lost, hopeless, maybe even guilty for what happened to you and guilty that you can’t always be the parent you'd hoped. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to make sense of your experiences. You’re ready to re-gain control. Most of all, you’re ready to feel capable and empowered to be the parent your children need.

I’m so glad you are here. Do you feel overwhelmed, confused, stuck, anxious, or dissociated? Find yourself shutting people out and pushing them away, or say yes for fear of being alone? Sometimes it’s just easier to do things ourselves, to hold it all. We often spend so much time protecting ourselves from pain that we feel like we are not really living. Humans are hardwired to focus on the negative aspects of life for survival; even when there is some good, we push the positive away or have a hard time accepting it.

Offering daytime hours only. My therapeutic approach is strength-based, client-centered, and integrative with the belief that we have the innate ability to heal, grow, and seek greater meaning in life. I see each individual as unique, whole, and inherently good. I believe therapy is an interactive relationship between you and me. My approach prioritizes authenticity, trust, and empathy as the foundation for effective therapy. Our first step is defining what brought you to pursue counseling. Then, we will look at the the difficulties you are facing and collaborate on a plan that is specific and unique for your situation.

In my work as a therapist, I rely on: compassion, creativity, curiosity, honesty, patience, kindness, and humor. I am fond of working with Internal Family Systems, Narrative Therapy, and with whatever it was Carl Whitaker was up to. I consider my practice to be an invitation to work with people of all: ages, backgrounds, identities and expressions, which in part means I work with kids and teens. My pronouns are typically he/him.

I believe we develop symptoms, such as depression and anxiety, when our body is trying to tell us something in our life is no longer working. You just want to feel normal again. You want to envision your future without this dark cloud over it. You want to make sense of what has happened and rediscover the parts of yourself that went missing along the way. I can help.

What type of Olympia 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 Olympia?
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.
