I am committed to providing psychotherapy, counseling, education, and support services to individuals, couples, and health care professionals. I specialize in areas regarding the impact of stress, illness and loss, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, relationship issues, life transitions and all areas pertaining to creating and maintaining healthy relationships both personally and professionally.

During the last thirty-three years, in addition to my private practice, I had the honor to be a staff therapist with Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, an educator and staff psychotherapist for the University of Washington School of Medicine and I have created and teach a workshop " Understanding and Preventing the Impact of Stress, Illness, Grief and Loss" for physicians, nurses, mental health professionals, dentists, veterinarians, physical therapists and massage therapists .

I have created a Three Day Intensive: a ten hour therapy program for treating depression, personal and professional stress, anxiety, trauma, loss of confidence, PTSD, the affects of illness, death and grief. EMDR , a specialty in my practice, is included throughout this intensive. For those in therapy with me or other professionals, this can be a long-lasting adjunct treatment.  I accommodate local, national and international clientele in my Seattle office and on occasion, in the city where you live.

I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is eclectic and collaborative in nature and integrates complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client.  Our work will be focused on exploring your feelings, thoughts, and actions. My goal for our work together is to provide psychological interventions, insights and emotional support which are appropriate to your needs and goals.

I see my task as providing an environment where it is safe for you explore your thoughts and feelings, to explore options and consequences, to assist you in making important decisions, take risks, to perceive yourself and others differently, to recognize patterns in past and present behaviors, to have an opportunity to visualize and experience new responses and to create a healthy and rewarding life.
