My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed mental health psychotherapist providing counseling, life coaching and case managing services for over 25 years. I am proactive, solution-focused and committed to providing the highest level of care. Clients seek my assistance for a variety of reasons ranging from wanting help managing depression and anxiety symptoms, to working through challenging relationship issues, or coping with a serious illness, death, loss of a loved one or trauma. Services may be provided in-person within a private practice office setting in Edmonds, WA, via telehealth or within an in-home or on-site setting within the Greater Seattle area.
Helping others overcome obstacles, achieve their goals and experience a greater sense of well-being is what I am most passionate about. I work with late teens, adults and seniors from all walks of life and have an integrative approach in order to best meet the unique needs of my clients. My clinical training includes interpersonal and family systems therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused models, strengths-based models, brief therapy, mindfulness therapy, object-relations therapy, narrative therapy, psycho-dynamic approaches and music & art therapy. Life coaching practices draw from Motivational Interviewing (MI), Self Matters, GROW Model, Fearless Living (FLI), Robbins-Madanes, Brené Brown, Coachville, SHAPE and spiritual formation models. Case management services are based on social work methodologies, Integrated Case Management (CMSA), TheraScribe Wiley Practice Planners and Geriatric Case Management training.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you. I view my work with clients as more of a calling than a job. I love helping people reach their fullest potential! The bottom line, life is full of challenges. It's how we deal with those challenges that makes all the difference in the world! Reach out. I'm here to meet you where you are and support your growth.
