Individual Counseling

Deciding to start therapy involves different goals and intentions for each person who makes the choice. Therapy with me respects and reflects those differences and sees them as unique gifts we can use for your benefit. I consider our therapy relationship to be a living breathing thing that changes and adapts as you do.

I organize my thoughts with many different theories and orientations so we have a lot of flexibility in figuring out how best to help you however you are needing. I invite you to come with your ideas, too.

My expertise is in working with you when you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or more common relationship problems and concerns. I often help people who feel overwhelmed, depleted, and unsure of what to do. My specialty is helping where it’s needed.

  • 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.

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.
