My Approach to Helping
Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed or lost? Are you trying to sort out a big life change? Sometimes life gives us a detour to search within and find our strength. The focus of my practice is to help adults who want more out of life. Together we can explore what you want for the road ahead. Whether it's finding calm in a stressed out world, better understanding yourself, becoming more present or rebuilding hope I believe therapy can help.
As a therapist I see myself as a guide. The support I provide will meet you where you are at. I am here to help you discover your goals and walk alongside you as you pursue them. I use an integrative approach meaning I'll draw from multiple perspectives and counseling theories as we work to better know your whole self. I enjoy working with clients in the outdoors because I've experienced the healing and calming presence of nature in my life. I also meet with clients through online therapy appointments. I'd describe my approach as insightful and calm with a sense of humor.
More Info About My Practice
I provide therapy outdoors in the Puget Sound as well as online video therapy for people throughout Washington State. .
Nature heals. In the outdoors we can observe the ability to adapt to harsh conditions and the possibility of new growth. I believe the same observations can happen through therapy. Outdoor therapy is more than just a session outside. Our work together is enhanced by the calming presence of nature. This is a great fit for people who best express their thoughts and feelings while being able to move and experience. Nature provides an expansive setting that invites deeper reflection.
The process of outdoor therapy can take different forms. Whether our session takes place at a park, on a nearby trail, or by the waterfront we will explore your thoughts and feelings in the stillness of a peaceful environment. We may even incorporate an outdoor activity (such as observing wildlife, hiking, photography) that invites you to access your creative side and expand your comfort zone.
I believe there are valuable insights found in nature that can be applied to your therapeutic goals.
