Psychotherapy & Counseling



“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”


-Mary Oliver

I am a licensed Seattle therapist offering skillful psychotherapy and counseling with warmth, gentleness, humor, and an interactive, down to earth style.  I work with adult and adolescent individuals, couples, and groups dealing with a wide range of concerns.   


There are many reasons to enlist the help of a counselor.  If you have found your way here, I imagine you may be struggling with some part of yourself or with someone in your life.  You might be looking for hope and support for problems that seem overwhelming.  You may have the sense that you are not living the life you want to live, and wish to step more powerfully into yourself.  Or you may be on a path of learning and self discovery. 


This process is about igniting what works, what is strong and beautiful in us, as much as it is about resolving old hurt and compassionately holding the difficulties of life.  The powerful shifts that therapy can facilitate create greater room for happiness, authenticity and a deeper sense of purpose and meaning.


In Greek the word “psychotherapy” means “attending the soul.”  Psychotherapy offers a chance to slow down, to step out of your daily life, into a realm that is created just for you.  Therapy is sacred space, a powerful investment in your self and in your relationships.


It is important to find the right therapist, someone with whom you feel safe and comfortable. Here you can learn more about me and the Seattle counseling services I offer.  If you have questions or are interested in talking with me, I encourage you to call or to make an appointment to come in.  The best measure of whether we are a good match is to meet in person.
