Welcome to my website, and congratulations for taking the first step toward finding the right therapist and getting the support you need.
On this site, you can learn a little more about me, the types of clients and issues I work with, my approach to therapy, my fee structure, and my office location. You can also contact me directly via e-mail or call me at 206.414.8251.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and my office is located in downtown Seattle. I offer a free initial 20 minute consultation to all potential clients, and have flexible hours, including many evening time slots.
My work is grounded in humanistic/existential theory, and I believe it is important to develop a trusting, warm, and authentic therapeutic relationship with each of my clients. I focus on giving you a place where you can truly be seen and understood, and focus on helping you make meaning of your suffering and finding relief, hope and peace. I believe that therapy should be accessible, and offer a sliding-scale fee structure to as many clients as I can.
From my perspective, you, the client, are the biggest expert on your own life. With this in mind, I will work with you to identify your goals for therapy, and create a treatment plan and approach based on your unique personality, preferred relational style, and long- and short-term priorities. I will strive to provide you with an authentic, supportive, encouraging, and sometimes challenging therapeutic relationship to help you find the power to make desired changes in your life.
I know that finding the right therapist can be daunting. Please feel free to call me with questions, or to set up a free 20-minute in-person consultation to see if we could work well together. Even if you decide that my counseling approach is not the right fit for you, I will do my best to refer you to colleagues who may better meet your needs.
