I am a licensed psychologist in Washington and mental health counselor in Hawaii providing online therapy and consultation.
Psychologist in Mercer Island, WA
I have extensive experiences in working with divorcing and divorced individuals with or without children and helped them navigate through complicated legal process to start a new beginning feeling healthy with a sense of accomplishment.
Traditional Western medicine viewed physical and mental health as though they were separated from spirituality. Thanks to numerous research supporting health benefits of meditation and yoga practice, many people are now exposed to the idea of positive use of spiritual energy to restore health. I believe in therapeutic power of spiritual energy and promote and use it to assist clients to integrate their healing journey to finally feel whole.
Existentialism is my basic attitude to life and foundation of my psychotherapy practice. Existentialism emphasizes the importance of choice. Each moment we choose how to appear in the world we live. I help clients develop skills to be increasingly aware of their intentions behind their choice of action. This leads them to have deeper understanding of themselves which helps them to come to terms with past and present experiences.
EMDR is not a technique but is a therapy orientation that is excellent for healing trauma. I have been practicing EMDR since 2012 and find this method very effective to process intrusive traumatic memories that cause various symptoms. EMDR also helps with acquisition of useful skills and desirable qualities to facilitate life. I offer EMDR via telehealth.
