Hello! I am a fully licensed therapist located in Washington that works with adults and offer both induvial and and couples therapy.
Marriage & Family Therapist in ,
Using interventions such as ACT or DBT we explore underlying patterns of behavior, beliefs and begin to redefine the Self through psychotherapy.
Often anxiety is a symptom of a Highly Sensitive Person or simply put, people who are more than others affected by other people's energy. Through the use of integrative therapy, mindfulness, psychoeducation of HSPs and talk therapy the client will learn how to care for their nervous system and enjoy life more.
I specialize in non-acute trauma disorders, including Complex PTSD, Traumatic Grief/loss and Childhood abuse and neglect. Through the use of IFS, Healing Centered Engagement, Brainspotting and several other modalities we will focus on healing the traumatic wounds and resetting the nervous system.
Previous experience working in treatment centers and over 20 years experience working with 12-step groups AA, NA, ACA, Al-Anon.
Wonder why you keep doing the same things expecting different results? ACT can help you figure that out with your therapist!
Does your resume look like a game of scrabble? Are you excited when you find that "perfect job" and then six months later, you're over it? Do you have trouble with a particular personality type that no matter what you do you're always on their hit list? You may be a Highly Sensitive Person, which is not a diagnosis, it is a genetic nervous system trait. I've been helping HSPs find their strengths, tap into their special abilities and discover new careers that are comfortable and satisfying!
