Customized Solutions for Change
The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
-M. Scott Peck
I am a state licensed Mental Health Counselor in private practice, working in Issaquah, WA.
I received a Masters in Counseling from Seattle University in 1996, and have been licensed since 2003. My work as a therapist is guided by twenty-eight years of diverse clinical experience, including case management, crisis intervention, advocacy and counseling for a wide range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, trauma and chronic mental illness; physical and developmental disabilities; substance misuse and addiction; grief and loss issues; challenges facing professionals as well as life transitions, women's issues, self-esteem, emotional eating, weight management and health and wellness concerns. My experiences have connected me with clients from diverse cultural, racial, economic and spiritual backgrounds. I have worked extensively both in publicly-funded and private, non-profit agency environments, with multi-system involvement, as well as in the private sector, providing outpatient therapy to individuals, families and groups.
I believe that each of us has the capacity for wellness and growth, and I feel that real change can happen in a safe and trusting therapy relationship. On this foundation, clients are active participants in their treatment, and encouraged to set clear objectives and goals in therapy. I am comfortable using a variety of collaborative interventions to help create new strategies to bring about successful outcomes, including written and experiential exercises as well as other exploratory aids. Together we determine what a successful and realistic outcome would look like for you, and craft a meaningful plan to help chart progress.
I am a preferred provider with the following insurance networks:
- Carefirst Blue Cross Blue Shield
- First Choice Health Networks
- Kaiser PPO
- United Behavioral Health/Optum
If you have coverage with another insurance provider I can provide you with a receipt for reimbursement. Many insurance providers offer “out of network” benefits if you do not see your plan listed above. For additional questions, or to schedule a consultation,please contact me at (425) 458-5859.
Sessions are typically scheduled for 55 minutes. While most clients are seen weekly, bi-weekly or monthly sessions are optional.
Payment for services is due at the time of appointment, unless other payment arrangements have been made. The cost for services is $100.00 per hour.
