Welcome to this space.
I know that it isn't always easy to reach out.
I also know that finding a therapist can sometimes be hard.
But I believe that reaching out and finding a therapist who feels like a good fit, is an important first step in your journey towards health and healing.
Here are some things that are helpful to know when choosing a therapist...
I work with couples, groups and individuals of any age, and I am especially fond of working with young adults. My specific interests and specialties include trauma, family of origin issues, identity development, anxiety, depression, shame and relationship issues. I also value walking alongside clients who are in transitional seasons of life, as I believe these are often the seasons when our identity is challenged the most.
As a firm believer in the power of stories, I believe therapy is a way of finding the truest narrative in the stories that clients want to tell with their lives. I am passionate about empowering clients to live more integrated lives, by helping them to navigate their stories of harm with kindness and self-compassion instead of shame.
I received my MA in Counseling Psychology from the Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, and I now work on staff there as a part-time practicum facilitator. I have also completed Level 1 and 2 trainings of Life Span Integration.
Personally, I enjoy spending time with my wife, walking my dog, baking a nice artisan loaf of bread, drinking a hot cup of tea, and reading a good story.
If you have further questions regarding whether Storyline Counseling and Wellness might be a good fit, please feel free to contact me HERE.
I also offer a free 30 minute face-to-face consultation for first time clients to allow for time and space for us to meet, briefly explore what brings you to seek counseling at this time, ask any further questions you might have, and to discuss how I might be able to help.
