First, I’d like to take a moment to welcome you to my page and acknowledge the courage and bravery it takes to consider engaging in therapy.
Social Worker in Seattle, WA
Psychodynamic therapy focuses on understanding the relationship you have between yourself and others, yourself to yourself, and yourself and me (these relationship patterns can be broadly termed "attachment patterns/styles"). CBT therapies like ACT focus on the interrelationship between thinking patterns and styles, behavioral patterns, and emotional patterns. I draw from the strengths of both approaches to tailor therapy to your unique needs.
I have extensive post-graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy (particularly Intensive Short Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy or ISTDP).
I have completed introductory training in ACT for depression, anxiety, and trauma, in addition to completing a number of advanced ACT trainings.
