Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)

Professional Credentials: Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist; Certified EMDR therapist, Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage & Family Therapy and Washington Association for Marriage & Family Therapy, member of Seattle Counselors Association, Washington State Coalition of Mental Health Professionals and Consumers and Seattle Narrative Group. TREATMENT MODALITIES: I provide research-based couples therapy, Imago therapy, family therapy, emotionally-focused couples therapy, psychodynamic, EMDR and cognitive behavioral and differentiation approaches to therapy. My style is both interactive and directive using systemic therapy, family of origin, psycho-educational, experiential and dynamic theories to access strengths and change negative patterns. SERVICES: I specializes in couples therapy, but I also enjoy seeing individuals and families with issues around conflict/management of differences, intimacy, sexuality, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, parenting and pre-marital. I accept most major insurances. Hours: 8a-5p M-Th or by appointment.

After 27 years in the field, I have dialed in my work with couples to achieve an amazing success rate. Over the years, numerous couples have presented to me on the brink of divorce and/or where their partner is having an affair. I have helped these couples turn their relationship around 180 degrees to achieve a level of intimacy they had never before experienced in their lives much less thought possible with their current mate! My work with EMDR, differentiation, emotionally focused couples therapy and Imago theory have been instrumental in my success with couples and individuals alike. What happens neurologically for the individuals within the couple can make or break the intimacy bond they are able to attain. Identifying how one gets triggered in relationship is key to the success of any relationship. So if you are experiencing an affair, arguments, difficulty communicating or just plain want a more vibrant relationship, we should meet!

Searching for a good therapist is a difficult task. Like attorneys and doctors, there are many of us out there in the world and not all of us are equal in ability or talent. There are many degree types and ways to do therapy. Another consideration is the therapist's level of personal work which they have either done or not done and consequently will either aid them in their work with you or can be an obstacle. Who you invite onto your team is critical to the work being done.
