Do any of these sound familiar?
- “I feel down, anxious, or angry”
- “Sometimes I get stuck in a place where I can’t see any hope”
- “What I do doesn’t seem to make a difference”
- “I don’t feel I’m being the person I want to be.”
What Individual Therapy Can Do For You
Are you feeling down, frustrated, defeated? Are you fine, but just want to grow and make more of your life? Having a place to talk and an accepting listener is a major step towards change. Therapy can help you face the stuff inside that clouds your vision, affects how you came across to others, and gets in the way of taking action. You can find your way through depression, loneliness, and frustration to the hopeful pathway you want to be on.
My approach is trauma informed, meaning I am trained in providing safety and healing for those who carry emotional wounds from past distressing events, particularly from difficult or neglectful childhood experiences. These frequently shape how we interpret and respond to life’s challenges. Working to help you recognize and heal these influences can release you from unhappiness and help you create the life you want.
Individual sessions are available in person at my office in Federal Way and online through video chat systems.
Here are some of the areas that I can help you with:
- Finding hope
- Trusting and valuing yourself
- Facing effort and fear and taking the action you want
- Healing the reactive habits that come from a dysfunctional family
- Putting traumatic past events to rest
- Developing assertiveness
- Managing anger
