If you are seeking therapy, I regret that I am not accepting new clients at this time, and my waitlist is closed (Winter/Spring 2022). I’m afraid I am unable to provide specific therapist referrals at this time. You may reference the therapy directories offered by the EMDR International Association, the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, or the listing provided by Seattle-based therapist Robin Shapiro at her website, www.emdrsolutions.com.

Welcome. Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

You’re looking for a therapist, maybe, because you have struggled with the same problem, off and on, for years. You kept hoping that it would just go away on its own, but it didn’t, and it continues to trouble you in today.

Perhaps a current situation in your life is bringing back old, unpleasant feelings, or frustrating–maybe even unsafe–behaviors that you can’t figure out how to deal with, and it’s negatively affecting both you and and the people you love.

Maybe you’re experiencing something new and uncomfortable that you’ve never faced before, and your old, reliable ways of coping just aren’t working as well as you think they should.

It’s possible you’re here, reading this, feeling that old struggle inside between two or more conflicting urges: On the one hand, there may be a feeling that it would be better to ‘leave things well enough alone’ and just push through life pretending that things are ok. That would be understandable.

On the other hand, there may be something inside that wants stability and containment; or, to heal those old, forgotten…but still painful…wounds; or, to just move beyond feeling ‘stuck’. It’s hard to feel ok in the world–or even in your own skin–with the emotional equivalent of a shard of glass in your foot.

You’re not alone. There is hope for positive change, even when it hasn’t happened in the past. Many people of all ages and backgrounds seek therapy to make some kind of change in their life. Although there is no true “normal” for everyone, if what’s happening for you just doesn’t feel right, then trust your gut and get the support you need.

Take your time exploring my website to learn more about what I do and how I might be of service to you, information about the ‘nuts and bolts’ of my practice,  information about my practice experience, and helpful resources elsewhere on the web.

If, after you’ve had the opportunity to review the site, you feel strongly about working through the barriers that keep you from realizing your full potential–or if you’re not yet certain but still find yourself feeling curious about the process of therapy and how I might meet your needs–then I encourage you to schedule a free 20-30 minute phone consult  today.

If you’re a clinician seeking growth opportunities through professional consultation, then feel free to schedule it directly via my secure portal.

I look forward to speaking with you soon.
