I'm glad that you're here. Reaching out for self-improvement through therapy is a positive step. It's the beginning of a journey toward self-growth, life satisfaction and meeting personal goals. It often does comes with some stressors and questions. I provide a compassionate, judgement-free, and safe place to explore these with you. 
For the time being, I am meeting with people through telehealth. I plan to go back to meeting with people in person when the social distancing guidelines shift back. 
I specialize in anxiety. My method of therapy is client-centered with the most important aspect of therapy focusing on the client-therapist relationship. I work with people to find a form of therapy that makes sense and works for their individual goals. I am a conversationalist, I approach therapy as a dialogue where clients can openly share their thoughts, behaviors and experiences to better explore and understand underlying concerns.
I strive to help people who are in distress and feel they need to make a change for themselves. For many people, it's difficult to determine which areas of their life needs to change in order for them to be more satisfied.
Decisions often need to be made about romantic relationships, work life and family relations. These are not always easy. I help identify patterns, and help clients process emotions that are causing them difficulties in these areas. Through a partnership, we will generate methods to improve these patterns for greater emotional satisfaction and more gratifying relationships with yourself, friends, family and loved ones.
I am a licensed mental health counselor practicing in Seattle, Washington.  I have enjoyed helping people with a wide range of circumstances and difficulties for the past 9 years. These issues include but are not limited to mood disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders (including Pure-O), life transitions, LGBTQ+ issues, relationship issues, trauma, addictions and loss of meaning
 Cost: The first 30 minute session/consultation is free of charge. This time is for both of us to get to know each other and see if we are a good match for therapeutic work. Typically, this initial session is done in person, in my office, and lasts 30 minutes, but some clients prefer to chat on the phone. 
Once a client has scheduled a session after the initial consultation, my rate is $150 per session (50 minutes). Couples therapy is $215 per 90 minute session. I prefer checks, cash, but will accept most major credit cards. Payment is due at time of service. If you are struggling financially, I do provide a reduced fee on a sliding scale. This is agreed upon during the initial consultation and is determined on a case-by-case basis.
