Person-centered therapy in Kirkland and greater Seattle area for the unconventional millennial.
Clinical Social Worker in Kirkland, WA
Does stress consume your day to day life? Do you find yourself overwhelmed with panic and worry? By learning specific skills and tools in therapy, you can find relief from anxiety and get back to living your life.
Constantly criticizing our looks and having persistent low self-esteem in our appearance seems to be a norm in our culture. Finding freedom from our own negative beliefs can be the biggest act of kindness you give yourself.
When we are socialized as women, we internalize so much. Thoughts and beliefs about perfectionism, self-worth, our bodies, politeness (I could go on...) can take a lifetime to unlearn! My approach to therapy for millennial women is to build your capacity for self-compassion and slow things down so you can notice what’s really going on inside of you. With support, you can start to truly know yourself and all your many layers to more authentically enjoy your life.
Do you find yourself stuck in thought patterns that are unhelpful, problematic, or downright self-destructive? The skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can allow you to challenge and change thought patterns to live a more positive life.
In life and in the therapy room, you are the expert in you. While utilizing Person-Centered Therapy, you will be seen and heard on your road to self-discovery. Discovering who you really are may be the most valuable challenge you have undertaken.
What if you could be kinder to yourself instead of beating yourself when you're down? What if you could meet yourself with grace rather than criticism? Through the art of mindful self-compassion, you can build a greater capacity for self-love and empathy for others.
Informed and trained in the Gottman method, couple’s therapy will help you understand yourself in the context of a committed relationship, communicate needs, notice communication challenges, and cultivate the skills to overcome this. Through this process, you create more intimacy (and moments for intimacy) to create a healthier, more adaptable relationship.
The choice to start a family can bring a lot to the surface. As a Perinatal Mental Health Certified (PMH-C) therapist, we can talk through anything that falls within this period of “the baby decision”. This can be what raising kids looks like for your family, conception, loss, pregnancy, changes to your body, the postpartum period – you name it. I’ll provide a space for support and skills you can use to navigate this change better.
