Billing and Insurance
I am an in-network provider but I don't wish to specify which ones
See other therapists in Seattle, WA.
I would like to help you find the direction, solutions, hope, new perspectives, or help you realize that you may have choices that hadn't occurred to you before.
Someone shared with me once what I thought to be a profound statement, "You don't have to suffer silently." I feel this is so true and I do my best to support you through your difficult times or help you become aware of new options that may not have occurred to you before..
I believe it takes courage to ask for help. It may not be easy but definitely easier to face problems with support and caring. Life can become very complicated and painful at times and talking to someone who can be objective, non-judgmental and supportive is usually very helpful.
Please see my website for more in depth information about my practice.

More Info About My Practice
I am a preferred provider on several insurances such as Aetna, First Choice and some Group Health plans. Be sure you check with your HR dept.to see if you have an EAP benefit or if you have a flexible spending plan or HSA you may use that to pay for counseling.
If you don't have insurance I'll be happy to discuss a private payment arrangement that will work for you.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
I feel therapy works for several reasons. In counseling you will have the experience of unconditional supportive, in a non-judgmental environment and have an objective witness to your difficulties or pain. Plus you are assured 100% confidentiality.
I find that if you commit to stay in therapy for as long as it takes for you to experience resolution or see the results of new skills you've learned put into action it is a rewarding outcome.
My clients share that they have gained new perspectives or are able to see their blind spots and have developed the skills they've learned to draw upon when have problems.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Going to talk to a stranger about your personal problems is difficult. Some people think that a therapist is going to tell them what do, or tell them what's wrong with them or blame them for issues or may experience shame thinking they are the only one who has ever experienced a problem like their's. You can share as you trust develops and then only what you decide to share and only when you're ready.
For couples counseling you may worry you will be blamed or criticized for the relationship problems you seek help for. I will not blame you or your partner nor will I let either person in the relationship blame the other.
You can be assured Judgment is not part of counseling. I will ask you to be as open and honest as you're able to, but at your own pace. You can decide what you want to share with me. The questions I ask will help me understand what has brought you to this place in life to help you. As you get to know me and eventually develop trust in me sharing will usually become easier.
If you've had a counseling before that didn't seem helpful or are reluctant or wary of attending, perhaps it was the age you were at the time or you weren't ready to deal with some of the issues you had. We can discuss what didn't work for you before if that's the case or what you are worried about and I'll strive to make sure that you feel comfortable with me and check in with you from time to time to make sure you're getting what you want and need. You get to be in the drivers seat of your counseling.
