If you struggle with worry and sadness, grief and loss, communication issues or conflict resolution, I’m here to offer compassionate support and tools for you to use in moving forward. It’s not about becoming a different or “better” person, but being the person you were meant to be and already are. I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, passionate about helping individuals and couples find healing, peace, excitement and freedom in their lives and relationships. You are unique, and so are your struggles. Your pain is real, even if you may minimize it at times. Your experiences deserve attention and support while working at a pace that feels right for you. My goal is to help you through your current situation while preserving your values and sense of identity. I offer a non-judgmental space where you can talk freely and get at the root of the problem. There is hope, and there are answers. I received a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Washington in 1992, and a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific University in 2000. I have been working in private practice in Renton since 2013. I also have experience as a domestic violence victim advocate. Depending on what works for you, I use a variety of treatment approaches, including emotionally focused couples therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychoanalysis, mindfulness counseling, and Gottman counseling methods.
Relationship struggles can be frustrating, embarrassing, overwhelming, confusing. I work with couples to overcome mistrust, guilt, intimacy problems, infidelity, and poor communication. When I work with couples, I see the relationship as the client, and our goal, all three of us, is to find a way, as a team, to defeat the enemies of the relationship. I’m here to help you both explore each other’s needs and concerns in a safe and calm environment, to identify the unhealthy patterns that are getting in your way and to give you tools to foster and maintain an enviable relationship. If you find yourself feeling worried about your future or sad about recent events in your life, you might need help from someone who can empathize with you, offer unbiased counseling or a different perspective and a reminder that you are not alone in your struggles. You do not need to settle for a life filled with anxiety or depression. You can have the life you want.
