I absolutely love being the therapist for the individuals and couples I help, so it's never a challenge to find the motivation, energy, and passion needed to sustain this work. Quality therapy really does require that the therapist truly love this field, and any client (or colleague) of mine can attest to my desire to be in the role of therapist to people of all gender expressions, sexual orientations, and backgrounds.

Sometimes the path to healthy, satisfying relationships that really work are a mystery, so I'm often sought out by couples who wish to gain skills and knowledge around being the partner you wish to be and having the relationship they know is possible. Perhaps you experience depression and want to get back to engaging in your life in meaningful ways. People often seek me out specifically for help moving from feeling stressed and anxious to being more relaxed and at peace.

Relationship Counseling in Seattle

It's never too early, or too late, for relationship therapy and I love guiding couples through whatever situation they find themselves in. I use various relationship therapy approaches, including the Gottman Therapy approach through the Gottman Institute, to assist couples in communication, conflict-management skills, emotional connection, and many of the other lovely challenges we all face in our relationships. Relationships can be tough, even great ones, but a trained and competent couples therapist can absolutely help to add more ease and joy into your day-to-day lives together. What makes relationships not only last but thrive is actually well understood, thanks to over 45 years of research through the Gottman Institute, and my job is to help you both to bring that knowledge into your own union. Let me use the skills and training I have as a therapist for couples and individuals to help get you where you want to go. Whatever challenges you two are facing, working with a qualified therapist opens new possibilities for hope, and creates changes that last.

Other specialties I offer include adults with ADHD, parents of children with behavior challenges, and problematic technology use.

Education and Experience

I have a Master of Psychology (Counseling Specialization) from the Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) program of Saybrook University. Though I have training in a number of therapeutic disciplines, I have received specialized advanced training in Lifespan Integration (LI), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy Plus (CBT+).

Some non-therapy passions include travel, playing music, and enjoying with close family & friends.
