Individual Counseling

Deciding to come to therapy is a decision that involves different factors and goals for each person. In the same way, your therapy experience is unique and tailored to everything about you and what you genuinely care about. How we do that is through coordinated effort – by thinking about how you experience situations in your world, sometimes even looking at what happens in our sessions, and discovering how that impacts the intentions you set every day in your life. This is custom life engagement for you and only you.

My specialty is working with anxiety and/or depression, but I can and do help with many different situations. Sometimes, things just feel “off” for someone, so we start there and see what can be adjusted that will have the biggest life-giving impact. Here are a few examples of situations where people have come to me looking for help:

  • Anxiety, stress, worrying
  • Sadness, feeling down
  • Dating concerns
  • Relationship/intimacy problems
  • Career/work questions
  • Feeling disappointed or frustrated

If you’ve never tried therapy before, you may be surprised with how quickly things start to feel better. Clients often report feeling lighter after our first session. We go as deep with your work as you want. 

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 would be like.

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.
