Counseling + Supervision
I provide individual, couple, family or group counseling using a variety of techniques based on the type of treatment specific to your mental health needs.
Please check the blog page for groups that I will be forming as well as additional resources for mental health care.
Currently I am an Approved Supervisor in training for the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. Over the next few years I will be involved in rigorous training so I can become the most effective Systems supervisor I can be. I am an Approved Supervisor through the State of Washington and meet the requirements of WAC 246-809-134.
I provide supervision to Associate and Licensed therapists. Rates are on a sliding scale basis, from $50-100 per hour. I do not ask for proof of financial hardship; you know your situation and what you can afford for supervision. If you know a colleague you would like to share a supervision hour with, please ask for a shared supervision hour.
Methods + Specialities
When counseling clients, I focus on the individual and also the context in their lives. Where they go to school, what their family life is like, where they work, our society, culture, sexuality, ethnicity, class; all of these systems play a part in who they are and how they function. Through recognizing patterns in their life and processing events they’ve experienced, clients are able to learn tools in session to navigate and to help create the life they want to live
Additionally I like to identify and use the strengths and tools clients already have (even if they aren’t aware of it) in order to create the quickest change possible.
As for different types of theory within the therapy world, I commonly use in session: Family Systems Theory, Solution-Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic/Client-Centered, Meditation/Mindfulness, Psychodrama, and Internal Family Systems.
