For 25 years I worked with over 16,000 suicidal patients on the mental health unit of St. Francis Hospital with my office partner, Psychiatrist Dr. Sunida Bintasan, From observing their common patterns, I created an educational program (for persons with issues of deep despair, hopelessness, depression , feeling "LOST" & "TRAPPED" & "STUCK", and often with recurrent suicidal thinking) called Contextual-Conceptual Therapy (CCT). Combining expressive arts techniques, education, and therapy using "maps, models, & metaphors", it helps clients discover the roots of their deep despair, feeling trapped & lost, and/or suicidal thinking.

Someone in my family was asking me recently "What is the most important consideration when looking for a therapist? " The fit, the feel, the vibe you have with the therapist really is best way to decide if this is a good match. A good fit, you will work well together. We will work with the issues that you are currently experiencing, noticing the internal roots of conflict, and finding ways to make meaningful and purposeful shifts or changes in your life. Experiencing difficulties from depression , relationship endings, truama, abuse, addictions, let's talk. - My practice is typically full but can offer wait list for new consultations

I work with clients seeking growth, integration and change in how they experience their lives, both past and present. When a painful event or memories influence how we interpret our lives, we can often find ourselves stuck in patterns of avoiding, numbing, overworking, obsessing, etc. Despite our best efforts to push through, we start getting signals that something is off and that a deeper issue could be the cause. These signals can present as any range of symptoms (ie anxiety, depression , irritability) or relational difficulties, that sometimes gently, and often times urgently, tell us that we need care.

It took me years to admit I was depressed and anxious.
Does your life look good on paper, but you still feel sad and lonely? Are you finding it harder to enjoy things that used to bring you hapiness and fulfillment? Work is "fine," but you feel a lack of motivation that you once had. Do you find yourself forcing a smile on your face, even though inside you feel sad and maybe even a little guilty for not enjoying your life? There's a reason for all this sadness and together we can figure out what's really going on so that you don't have to feel this way anymore.

9/12/22: Accepting new clients. I help survivors of trauma and difficult childhoods reclaim the peaceful, joyous life they deserve. Survivors can be stuck in states of anxiety, depression or shame, have unusual medical issues, and may not even remember what happened. Focus issues, low self-esteem and problems trusting are also common. If this is you, please know we can work towards freeing you from the invisible grip of the past. We'll first establish a safe, open relationship and help you reconnect to the peace and strength in your body. At your own pace, we'll heal trauma and relational wounds using body-focused talk therapy.

Emotional violence/abuse is often at the core of our problems; we usually mask these deep hurts with depression /anxiety or a destructive addiction.
My practice is geared towards working through issues related to emotional/relational violence and trauma caused by abuse (physical, sexual, emotional). I also work with clients who have found themselves depressed and/or anxious due to some of these problems in their history. I believe in helping you find new ways of relating to yourself and others that foster wholeness, peace and honesty. My approach is couched in a mixture of kindness and truth, the goal being for you to see yourself more clearly with a greater sense of love and esteem, leading to increased contentment in life and relationships.

Feelings of despair, anxiety, rage, confusion, hopelessness, and depression are normal responses to a broken world. This brokenness manifests as oppression, inequality, trauma, destruction, and violence. Sometimes it can seem impossible to feel whole given the state of things. And yet, it is my deeply held belief that we can heal both individually and collectively, to find ourselves whole again, belonging.

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 Westlake, 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.
