Some of the work I love to do with clients
Couples Therapy: Services
You've likely heard about Dr. John Gottman, and his research uncovering what really works to make satisfying relationships. Your couples therapy will be tailored to just what the two of you need to improve your relationship, in a safe, impartial environment.
As you move forward towards greater commitment, some wish to discover if they really are right for each other, and most want a solid groundwork on which to build a lifelong partnership. Pre-marital therapy with me is tailored to your needs, and is not a set program.
If there are no couples therapists near where you live and you'd like to come to Seattle for a few days of intensive work on your relationship, explore Marathon therapy. Also available for local couples who'd like to get a lot of work done in a short period of time.
You're in more relationships than just with a partner. Therapy is available for adult family members, including siblings and parents with their grown children. Co-workers can also benefit from the expertise of a seasoned relationship therapist.
Married or not, committed or not sure, straight or LGBT, from similar backgrounds or opposite corners of the world, all adults in relationship are welcome if we're a good fit for each other.
Individual Therapy: Issues
Life is full of changes, challenges, and transitions, and sometimes you need some help dealing with the overwhelm. Get support adjusting to your move, job, relationship, health, financial situation, and busy life, and build tools and strategies for happier, more effective coping.
I work with individuals on their relationship skills, not just couples. Learn what your part is in your relationship and changes you can make to improve. Feel safe and supported, and if you want, be ready to be challenged to take a clear look at yourself.
Helping people become healthier, emotionally, physically, and in their relationships, is something that means a lot to me. Whether you're on the path of getting healthier and need some support, or you need clarity and guidance on where to start and steps to take, I am here to help.
In the midst of everything we need to tackle in life, we often don't take the time to slow down and relax. Physiologically, relaxation and stress management are crucial to our ability to cope, heal, and thrive. Learn what you can do to relax, and practical strategies you can use.
Depression and anxiety can rob us of our view of what is possible. In addition to a safe, supportive place to talk through what you're feeling, learn a wide, holistic variety of tools, skills, and strategies to improve your mood, your self-esteem, and your satisfaction with your life.
