My Approach to Helping
I am a warm and down to earth person. My style is informal, nonjudgmental, and engaging.
At certain points in life, every one of us can feel stuck, face challenges, experience frustrations and a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives.
There is no given definition of one's personality and abilities and I believe we each have the potential to create our lives from an enormous range of attitudes and behaviors.
More Info About My Practice
I charge $145 for a 50-minute individual session.
I am in network with Regence BlueShield, Kaiser Permanente, and Cigna. If I don't work directly with your insurance company, I can offer you documentation to provide to your insurer for reimbursement. Out-of-network coverage frequently covers a significant portion of the expense of therapy.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Therapy provides an opportunity to establish trust and experience the emotional support of another person. A place to work on resolving conflicts with people, understanding feelings and problems, and trying out new solutions to old problems.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Relationships are the cornerstone of the recovery process for most of us.
The kindness and compassion we receive from another can heal and be a significant part of recovery.
