I work with adults dealing with unhappy relationships, problems in communication, anxiety and depression. I love working with couples and frequently use the principles found in Gary Chapman's book: "The 5 love languages". It is important to note I am not a Christian counselor, I simply teach the communication aspects of this book. I am a preferred provider with Premera Blue Cross, Regence Blue Cross, First Choice Health Network, LifeWise and HMA. If you happen to have other insurance, I can bill them using your out of network benefits. I do not accept Medicaid or Medicare.

The basis of my counseling style is my belief that people are inherently good, and that with support, most people are capable of great change and personal growth. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is one of the most important parts of therapy, and I want to provide empathetic, non-judgmental support as my clients navigate the personal challenges they are experiencing. I believe that people usually seek counseling because something is causing them emotional or psychological discomfort or pain, and that counseling can often help determine the cause of that pain and hopefully alleviate it.

My approach to Mental Health Counseling is to view the client as expert in their own life. I do not play the role of expert in my client's lives. I do, however act as a guide, advocate, educator, and support person. What I will do is attempt to see your issues from your perspective and your view of the world. I work within the framework of Person-Centered Therapy, which focuses on the client being the expert, Existential Therapy, which focuses on behavior and looks at how the client thinks, feels, and behaves and the impact they have on others.

I am a compassionate person that truly believes that each individual in this world deserves authentic happiness and inner peace. We all have our own journey of growth, and I feel like I have a unique opportunity to create a safe space to support others in healing from experiences that have challenged their sense of self. Each individual is in charge of his/her/their own growth, and I view therapy as a partnership between myself and my clients throughout each stage of change. Therapy is a process that enables a person to discover self-awareness, to harness self-expression, and explore the capacity to have and hold stronger feelings.

You realize something needs to change. You have tried all you know. You have the courage to ask for help. The combination of self-awareness and the hope for change, even if you have no idea what that might look like. You are willing to see what can be.

With over fifteen years of experience working with individuals, couples and families Michael has successfully helped many clients with complex issues that negatively impact their lives and their families in significant ways. He believes in treating clients holistically (mind, body and spirit) and that the work clients do outside of therapy is as important as the work they do in session, so helping clients develop skills and providing resources that will support and help them make lasting change is a priority.

My client profile consists of 1/3 children/adolescents, 1/3 trauma focused therapy due to sexual assault and/or sexual addiction impact, and 1/3 females over 40 who would like to explore making changes in life. I enjoy the diversity of my practice as all the above mentioned areas enable me to work with both childhood disorders and relational challenges into adulthood. My focus on sexual addiction/trauma and family of origin issues is to provide supportive and therapeutic space for partners and children/teens who have been impacted by someone who has either a confirmed or suspected sexual addiction.

Are you fighting more than connecting? Have you lost the spark with your partner? Are you wondering where the sexual passion has gone? Do you feel like you have nothing left to give? All people possess what it is they need to thrive. Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in painful patterns and we have difficulty finding the answers to our problems. Deciding to try something different like therapy, is not always easy but it is worth the effort. Together we can find ways to help you realize that you are your greatest asset.

I am very interactive with my clients. I incorporate both dydactic work as well as experiential assignments. I use the Brief Therapy model and I believe in "working myself out of job" with clients i.e. short term work, hard-hitting and then people need to move on into the universe using the skills/techniques taught and used in therapy. I am actively involved in the therapy process and I hold a high bar i.e. I want my clients to be and do the best that they can do/be. I love to work on codepency issues, relationshiop issues & self-care.

You may be feeling that the strands of your life are unraveling and you want to make sense of it all. My private practice, Tapestry Therapy, is founded upon the belief that your life is like a tapestry, consisting of strands of stories that have been woven together to make one larger story. Our story is part of the larger tapestry of our family, race, culture, country and world. Through the work of therapy, we come to understand our stories and be empowered to decide how we will write future chapters. I utilize process therapy and Lifespan Integration, which is a somatic therapy, to help my clients reach their goals.

As a queer or questioning person, you’re going to face some decision making. It can be overwhelming, confusing, and even all consuming. Questioning our relationships, religion, unconscious beliefs, and work life can take a lot of our energy. Most of my folx are looking for a safe, judgment free place to talk, explore, and navigate life choices without pressure or expectation. I don't believe in one size fits all programs; let's figure out what makes sense for you and tailor therapy to your needs.

What type of Renton 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 Renton?
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.
