My goal is to create a safe, empathetic, person-centered space to engender grace: not trying to fix or cure, always moving towards transformation. Working with hospice for the past 12 years has deepened both my understanding and skills towards honoring and helping individuals and families as they move through many life transitions. If you need help with major changes, trauma, loss, grief, adjustment disorders or are exploring existential crisis, I offer a safe space to continue your journey.

I am accepting clients that are seeking understanding and change. I work best with children, teens, and families. I strive to help those that are connected and therefore affected by foster care and adoption. Together we will explore your story and learn how your story has affected your ability to love the life you are in. When you are afraid, worried, and anxious and don’t know why or where the next problem is coming from it is difficult to manage daily stress. When you are hurting so badly that the pain has gone numb from being consistent it is hard to express love or trust.

My 30 years as a Sex Therapist in private practice has enabled me to work with a large variety of relationships, sexual problems & intimacy issues. I can offer a safe place to discuss, explore, and create solutions for whatever difficulty you're experiencing. ​ Some Sex Therapy is short term (1-6 months) and often involves sexual education & permission to experience pleasure. Most Sex Therapy requires longer term therapy (1-2 years) because of relational dynamics, unhealthy beliefs about sexuality, anxiety, attachment issues from childhood, unresolved grief, trauma recovery, learning to identify & convey your sexual needs/wants.

Accepting NEW clients, as of November 2nd ( including children, teenagers, young adults, adults, couples, and families). I relocated from Big Island, Hawaii and I’m transcending the aloha spirit to Washington. I believe that each person has a voice that matters, and I want to hear your story. Therapy can be hard and enjoyable; but however the process unfolds, I will be there for the journey. Though I may have counseling credentials, it’s important to remember that you are the expert in your own life. I’m here to help guide you on what you think is important for your life and provide some useful tools along the way.

We are truly living in troubled times, globally and personally. Many of us find ourselves fluctuating between feelings of anxiety and/or depression. At 67 years old, I’ve spent nearly half my life – 35 years – as a Marriage and Family Therapist/Psychotherapist. Adding Hypnotherapy to my practice has been a game changer, and that, along with friends, colleagues, and many clients, I’ve learned ways of managing my thinking and thereby managing my emotions. This is what I do in my private practice and I can help you to do the same.

I'm going to introduce myself with a silly statement: I am not a wizard. I can't magically make your 10-year-old behave perfectly, your teen want to talk to you, or make your parents understand and appreciate you. I can, however, be an empathetic listener for children, adolescents, and young adults and help to provide context and understanding for thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may feel or seem perplexing. I provide tools, resources, and an environment in which change for the better is possible.

In over 25 years of working with individuals and couples, I have developed a very successful growth process. It begins by my understanding the problems that brought you into therapy, and then, together, developing treatment goals that take into account those problems, your strengths and fears, and that considers the progress you have already made. Then we engage as appropriate, always staying focused on you and your goals. I enjoy and am trained in both short-term specific problem therapy and also in-depth psychodynamic therapy. I look forward to meeting with you.

Life can be challenging. Whether it's loss, change, death of a loved one or uncertainty of life's direction, we all hit roadblocks and obstacles. During those times it's important to be heard. I am here to listen and to inspire hope. I believe in my clients' abilities to change. I nurture their inner strength until they can believe in themselves. Change is powerful. It can be transformational, scary and exciting. When I worked in Palliative Care with patients who were at the end stage of their lives, I was witness to the power of being present. In the quiet presence of acceptance, a deep healing can occur. PLEASE EMAIL FOR CONSULT

What type of Skagit County 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 Skagit County?
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.
