Working With Adults

My practice with adult clients varies widely. I am skilled in helping individuals address mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, as well as adjustment problems such as major life transitions: marriage, divorce, grief/loss, career/job changes and parenthood. I am a Certified Gottman Instructor for the Bringing Baby Home program, which helps new parents strengthen and maintain their coupleship during the course of adjusting to parenthood.

My clinical orientation primarily utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative approaches Family Systems, and a relatively new approach called Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) which is a mind/body approach of understanding how the brain-behavior and relationships coexist and impact our lives. The leading researcher in this field is Dr. Daniel Siegel, a research psychiatrist at the University of California, Los Angeles. My study of IPNB has cultivated a deeper understanding of the nervous system, which is proving to be helpful in the healing process. Because of this research, we know that we can “re-wire” our neural pathways and make profound changes in how we view our social and emotional lives.

As with children and teens, my style with adult clients is proactive. I enjoy clients who desire making positive changes to improve their current circumstances, and offer motivational strategies for those clients struggling with making the first steps toward meeting their goals. I work closely with referring providers if medication management is warranted.

Personal Interests: Out of the office, I enjoy exploring the Pacific Northwest, reading, hiking, and since IPNB strongly encourages learning new things to keep the brain healthy, I am currently learning how to knit.
