Congratulations for exploring the possibility of therapy to address your concerns and enhance your life. I provide therapeutic support to individual adults, couples, and families out of my office in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood and virtually through the secure platform doxy.me.
My Approach to Therapy
I'm a licensed couples and family therapist and have worked in private practice and agency settings for more than 20 years. My office is in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood, and I also provide telemental health through a secure portal (doxy.me). In working with couples or individuals focused on relationship issues, I use an Emotionally Focused Therapy approach. We identify your unsatisfying or damaging patterns of interaction and the underlying feelings that drive each of your responses within the dynamic. We then work to create safety to express those feelings in a way that deepens the connection and improves your relationship.
I also help couples heal relationship injuries, both current and past, including infidelities. Grief and loss, parenting issues, and relationship issues related to ADHD are also specialty areas of mine.
Regardless of whether I’m meeting with one person or an entire family, I think about the current and historic interactions between people that may have contributed to the present situation, as well as the relationships that can assist in resolving a problem.
