Individual Counseling

Deciding to start therapy or counseling is different for everyone. For instance, maybe you’ve wanted to try it. Or you’ve thought you weren’t the “type,” but now you’re curious. Maybe you did some therapy years ago and now is time to discover more. Or maybe it’s just time.

I use many different theories and orientations so we have a lot of flexibility in figuring out how best to help you. I invite you to come with your ideas, too. This is an interactive process and it is focused on you.

My expertise is in helping you heal through anxiety, depression, relationship problems, social worries, ADHD, TBIs, or whatever else you’re experiencing. I help people who are overwhelmed, depleted, or unsure of what to do. I am practical, deep and thoughtful in ways that truly help. I understand that you want to be seen and accepted for who you are.

  • Anxiety, stress, worrying, overwhelm
  • Sadness, feeling down, confusion
  • Dating concerns, relationships ending or beginning
  • Relationship/intimacy problems – sexual and emotional
  • Career/work questions, life transitions
  • Feeling disappointed, angry, or frustrated
  • Grief or transitions or loss
  • Pregnancy and post partum
  • Current events, national news

You may be surprised how quickly things start to feel better. My clients often report feeling lighter after each session.

When you’re ready to get in touch, call me at (206) 979-6764 or email me at If you prefer, I’m open to spend 10-15 minutes over the phone without charge so we can sense a flavor of what our work together might be like.

All sessions are currently virtual via secure video on or telephone to help protect everyone during this phase of the coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic.

My office is in the Eastlake area of Seattle, on the east side of Lake Union, just west of Capitol Hill, north of South Lake Union, and south of the University District and Wallingford/Fremont. I also offer couples counseling.
