Finding a Counselor

Things need to change due to anger, anxiety, fear, or the challenges of High Functioning Autism (Asperger’s Syndrome).

In addition to a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy, I am trained in trauma, High Functioning Autism (Asperger’s Syndrome), and Executive Functioning skills. Using a variety of approaches, I apply this information when working with my clients.

  • Bowenian Therapy- An approach that develops the individual self while maintaining connection with families and others. It strengthens the ability to self-soothe and self-confront, which permits an increased ability to contribute in satisfying relationships.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)- An approach that modifies emotions, behaviors, and thoughts by focusing on solutions, challenges distorted cognitions and changes destructive patterns of behavior.

Finding the right therapist is an important first step. Call 425.507.9067 to schedule an appointment
