My Approach to Helping

Just seeking assistance, we start the change process. Whether it's self-improvement or communications at home or work, personal growth work leads to personal integrity and a more engaged life. We find deeper sides of ourselves & a store of wisdom we don't always recognize we have. I offer 44 years experience and a straightforward approach. along with a free 20-minute consultation, for discussing personal concerns.

My counseling method is personal, interactive and well-researched; it respects what already is working and catalyzes efforts in more challenged areas. Most describe my work as sensitive, yet incisive and direct _ an active, empowering process.

More Info About My Practice

I am located in Downtown Seattle's beautiful Pioneer Square, in the historic Pioneer Building at 1st & James.

Fees are affordable, by percentage of income, capping at $155 for individuals and $175 for couples. Fees are due at time of service (via Venmo, if by Zoom). Blue Cross & Blue Shield reimburse, recognizing me as an "out-of-network" provider; however most people prefer the cash scale. No notes are kept; by client request, this arrangement is legal in the state of Washington and maximizes your privacy completely.

Email me with what concerns you have; a free twenty-minute meeting will be set. Should you choose to continue that session for a whole hour, then a fee will be charged.

Please feel welcome to contact me. I am glad to help.

My Role as a Therapist

The therapist's job requires a strong peer relationship to the client, who ultimately knows what he or she needs, to go forward.

My Therapy Focus

My therapy orientation includes sharpening self-awareness; but each client's direction differs, depending on their values and needs. My own path included work on relational issues with Gestalt and Feminist-influenced therapists & some years processing my dreams with Jungian & group-process oriented professionals. I have offered Dream Retreats for enrichment work since 1986 & CE Dream Workshops since 2014 in Port Townsend, WA. A women's Dream Group meets monthly via Zoom.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

Therapists or counselors, like those who see me professionally, benefit from ongoing human development efforts. I would not refer to a professional that does not engage actively in looking at their own issues.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Effective self-expression, in particular, is a skill we take for granted. It is one well worth developing & refining, as it affects both our personal experience and work lives. In addition to finding humor and balance, such efforts maximize our relationships, to our self and to others.
