I work with adults and adolescents presenting with a broad spectrum of concerns. These include, most notably depression and anxiety as well as trauma, PTSD, grief, inattention, eating issues, relationship issues, school issues, self esteem issues, adoption, sleep, and history of sexual and/or physical abuse. My therapeutic style is integrative: I draw from a variety of fields of psychology, including psychodynamic, relational, and cognitive-behavioral. Through therapy, we will work together to understand both the origins of presenting issues; clarifying why we act and feel the way we do, and why certain thought and behavioral patterns persist.

I see people with depression , anxiety, career issues, identity and/or relationship issues, and those experiencing grief, loss, or illness.
I believe a commitment to therapy is a commitment to oneself. It is very powerful to commit to grow and change in ways that increase a sense of personal satisfaction with one's life. I work with individuals who want to resolve issues of unrest, dissatisfaction or distress that recur in their lives. I believe as clients learn to increase their trust in themselves they can better trust others and better direct their lives.This work involves coming to a better understanding of the influence of past experiences, as well as present influences, and may include exploring deeper spiritual isssues.

I work with individuals ages 18 and up, as well as couples and parents. I believe symptoms are a request from the psyche to grow -- whether this manifests as depression , anxiety, or just a feeling that you want more from your life or your relationships. Or you may be experiencing a transition, grief, or loss and need support to navigate this change. Therapy creates a space in which healing and growth can happen. I believe humans have a natural, inherent tendency toward health and self-actualization. We are hard-wired to live good and meaningful lives, but sometimes need support to do so.

I believe that individuals and couples seek counseling and therapy for one primary reason: a desire for something to be different in their lives. Thus, I focus on helping people (1) identify differences they are seeking in their lives and relationships and then (2) developing the skills and internal capacities to make these differences a reality. For some, this involves changing ineffective behavior patterns; for others, it means treatment for depression , anxiety or other emotional/psychological blocks that hamper living a full and engaged life. What do you want to be different for yourself in your life?

I view therapy as a relational and collaborative process between counselor and client(s) that focuses on clients' personal goals and desires for change. I work with clients to understand their current difficulties, thoughts, and feelings as well as look at how their past experiences and relationships impact their current situation. Engaging in therapy has many benefits such as alleviating anxiety and dissatisfaction, learning better coping skills, improving relationships with others, increasing self awareness, and finding greater personal meaning.

We all have an image of our best self. This is the person we'd be if we just weren't so tired, so anxious, so angry or so depressed . I think about my work as the process of helping people to become who they already know they are - or could be. Our work together is to find out why you feel those things in the first place so you can move past them and start feeling happier, more productive and more connected to the life you want.

I often address depression ; general and social anxiety; family relationship struggles; perfectionism, overachievement, control, workaholism; singlehood/couplehood; mother/daughter issues; life transitions (new job/job loss, move, engagement, divorce/breakup, etc.
Psychotherapy is meant to address the roots of mental and emotional struggle, rather than just symptoms. In my practice, we can explore your strengths and challenges, discovering over time what motivates you, what may be contributing to your difficulties, and what helps you thrive. You will have the opportunity to get to know yourself and find ways of living that feel satisfying and fulfilling. My approach is intended to help create more room for your experience and navigate your thoughts and feelings with understanding, compassion, and skill.

I view therapy as a collaborative effort, where I share my expertise to help clients gain more insight and agency in their lives. I aim to do this by being open minded both to a wide variety of experiences and to a client's end goal of therapy. Additionally, since the lived experiences of others will differ from my own, I use consultation with clinicians with more expertise, to be emotionally safe and ethical in my interventions. I enjoy working with clients (all ages) that are trying to: manage anger, disappointment, depression , anxiety, creating & maintaining healthy relationships, and create affirming parenting practices.

Apologies, practice is full! My practice foundation: each of us naturally moves toward thriving (adjusting to and overcoming all variety of obstacles we encounter in life). Sometimes, we face especially difficult circumstances that seem to delay this process. I focus on guiding and challenging people to identify what is contributing to their current difficulty and the personal and environmental resources available to effectively work through the situation. The therapeutic relationship is key, providing a supportive opportunity for individuals to get clear about change they want to work toward and begin the positive change process.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Madison Valley, Seattle. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
