I have lived, played, and worked in Seattle and the Puget Sound Region since 2002. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor I work as a full-time Therapist in Seattle and Redmond. I received a Masters in Counseling and Certificate in DV Advocacy from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in December 2006.
In my counseling practice I come from two primary perspectives. The first perspective is that examining the themes and stories of my past will enhance my ability to lead a healthy and fulfilling life today. Stories about our families, caregivers, schools, friends, breakups, successful relationships and abusive ones all can have power in the here and now. In other words I strongly promote the idea of the examined life as the quickest and surest way to happiness and fulfillment.
The second perspective I bring to my practice is as follows. There really is no point to doing 'therapy' if I am currently not living a life where my basic needs are being met. Sudden tragedy, compulsive behaviors and addictions, financial stresses, changing careers, and other significant "disruptions" can all be reasons to seek help from therapy. Emergent issues and basic needs will be addressed first and foremost.
