Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)
I will focus on our therapeutic encounter in the moment, as well as how your experience of your current life situation mirrors earlier relationships and circumstances. Together, we will see what from your past supports and encourages you and what hinders you from being the person you want to be in life. Underlying all difficulties is the assumption that we are continually provided with opportunities to free ourselves from that which limits and obscures joy in our lives. I have 35 years of clinical experience working with individuals and couples. I am an adjunct faculty member at Antioch University, Seattle in the graduate psychology program for the past 22 years. People I work with often have these concerns: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Relationship challenges, Sexual or physical abuse histories, Life transitions, Grief and loss, Family life-cycle concerns, Leaving home, starting a family, Mid-life concerns, Caring for aging parents, Separation and divorce, and End-of-life passages. I am trained in a variety of models including depth psychology, humanistic and transpersonal approaches. I am trained in Lifespan Integration and CIMBS, utilizing these approaches when appropriate.
Much of the work I do with clients, is to help them understand what their deepest self or soul is asking of them. Many of our most serious life challenges are also invitations from deep within us, to know and to liberate what has limited our life expression. Sometimes these issues feel like ours alone; and sometimes we find the thread runs in our families, over many generations and comes to us in this life, to unlock the patterning.
