Psychotherapy can be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences an individual can undertake. I honor your willingness to be open, vulnerable, and curious about your life. I work with people experiencing a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and transition issues that create distress in their lives. These include:
- Therapy for Depression and Anxiety
- Anxiety-based Insomnia
- Cancer and After Cancer Counseling (See below)
- Work and Career issues
- Stress Management
Walk & Talk Therapy
I offer "Walk and Talk" therapy by request in my Bellingham office, where we will access Whatcom Falls Park. Walk and Talk therapy is described as an intervention that combines counseling, walking, and the outdoors. As weather permits (and yes, I have rain gear for milder conditions), people who choose this option can experience the benefits of moving and nature as we speak. You can read more about it here.
ABC: Affected By Cancer
A cancer diagnosis can be one of the biggest personal transitions we face from the moment of diagnosis to receiving the “All Clear” from your oncologist. As a therapist with oncology experience, I provide support for individuals (patients and caregivers), and couples to help you navigate the changes. During cancer treatment and after cancer treatment, I am there to help you maintain and/or restore your emotional wellbeing. Phone or video sessions (via a HIPAA compliant site), can be requested by those unable to travel.
CBT-I (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia)
Do you have trouble sleeping? Wondering if you have insomnia? Let's meet to see if we can work together to resolve it.
If you have insomnia, I can help you:
- Learn more about the role of sleep in your physical and mental wellbeing
- Challenge nighttime negative thoughts with positive thoughts (not "positive thinking")
- Help you slowly stop nightly use of sleep medication
- Create the best surroundings for quality sleep
In all instances, I offer a professional, comfortable and supportive atmosphere, and a highly personalized approach, tailored to each of my client's individual needs so they can experience the personal growth for which they they strive.
