Life is an incredible experience.  Yet it is also very painful and confusing at times.  We need each other to get through the tough times, however sometimes friends and family members do not know how to help us find the answers.  A therapist can help you discover new perspectives and solutions, learn better ways to communicate with others, and/or heal emotional wounds.  Some find that therapy is a dependable refuge for long-term healing and transformation while others only need support during a specifically challenging time.

Are you having relationship problems with your partner, friends, or co-workers?

We can explore the patterns of behavior and communication that are not working and identify new, more successful skills while supporting your unique personality.

Going through a life transition? (i.e. divorce, new job, death of a loved one, marriage, birth of a child or grandchild, serious illness, children moving away)

Whether events in our lives are perceived as "positive" or "negative," changes can cause stress and confusion.  A caring professional can help you understand the transition you are experiencing.  Sometimes this includes reexamining your values, beliefs and perceptions, or working to redefine your identity or role.

Are you are dealing with chronic conditions? (anxiety, physical pain, stress, anger, etc.)

A well-trained, intuitive therapist can help you to finally make the breakthrough you want.  Sometimes this involves looking at issues holistically--we can address emotional, mental, nutritional/medical and spiritual/energetic needs if you are interested in exploring these areas.  I can also collaborate with your physician, naturopath or psychiatrist or provide referrals to other resources or professionals. 

Frustrated with your child/children?

Parenting can be overwhelming.  I believe in empowering parents by supporting their strengths and offering effective parenting tools.  In a non-judgmental, encouraging environment, you can work on enhancing your skills and confidence with your child. 

Did you suffer trauma or abuse at an early age?

Therapy can help you recover from its painful legacy.  Learning about interpersonal boundaries and needs and developing healthy coping skills can help to remove the blocks that have kept you from healing.

Are you now in a relationship with an abusive person?

 I offer sensitive and informative support for domestic violence/abuse survivors.  You can learn how to better identify your needs and make safer choices for yourself.

I am profoundly impressed by the courage and motivation people have to make changes in their lives or recover from suffering.  Those who seek therapy as a way to gain a greater understanding of themselves and others are truly an inspiration.

I am a preferred provider for and accept Premera Blue Cross and First Choice Health. If your insurance is with one of these carriers, you will need to provide your insurance information to me well in advance of your first session.  (I must verify specific behavioral health benefits, policies and exclusions on your plan prior to your first appointment). I do not currently accept any other health insurance but can provide you with statements you can submit for your own reimbursement.
