I provide individual psychotherapy as well as marriage & family counseling in Kirkland, Washington. My specialty is working with sexual abuse survivors; pregnancy and postpartum difficulties such as depression, anxiety, miscarriage, or birth trauma; couples struggling with parenting or relationship issues after having kids; as well as the challenges of having special needs kids.
I'd be happy to work with you - whether you are dealing with anxiety & panic attacks, trying to lift from the darkness of depression, or working to improve your relationships. I offer a non-pathologizing approach (meaning, I won't be reducing you and your problems to some label or diagnosis) and support clients to get beyond just surviving, hopefully to something closer to THRIVING.
