My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling frustrated by the endless search for a therapist in your area? Have you found yourself repeatedly typing phrases like "Therapist near me," "Seattle therapist," or "How to find a therapist" in hopes of finding the right support? The process of finding a therapist can be challenging, requiring you to navigate availability, specialty, and the courage to ask for help. It's common for people to feel hesitant and put off reaching out for the support they need. If you've previously tried therapy without the desired results, know that you're not alone.
I am a good fit for clients looking for a safe space to cultivate inner trust to navigate anxiety, relationship to food and body, and relationship issues. We were never meant to live life in isolation, but it can feel hard to know what you need and how to ask for it. When pain is met with genuine compassion and wisdom, we can begin to find deeper meaning and a way forward. My hope for you is to be able to live your life wholeheartedly, cultivating strength.
The therapeutic relationship is the greatest predictor of success in therapy. Here, you can bring curiosity and notice patterns in your life that create barriers to growth. My focus with clients is often the mind-body connection. We explore how emotion is stored in the body and how to navigate your thoughts and beliefs about it with compassion. I also prioritize individualizing sessions to you, which means we likely will explore a variety of techniques and forms of therapy to ensure it's getting you to where you want to go. My eclectic and collaborative approach emphasizes empowerment and prioritizing your voice and vision.
If after our no obligation, free consultation phone call we don't feel like I am the best option for your individualized care, I would be happy to provide you with trusted referrals to keep you going in your search for the right therapist. Send me a message, and let's chat!
