Eastside Couples Therapy is an award-winning counseling practice offering couples therapy using the Gottman Couple Therapy Method, as well as individual counseling for married, pre-marital, or partnered adults in the communities of Redmond, Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, and Seattle’s Eastside. We are an LGBTQAI+ affirming counseling practice. I am a member of the GSBA, the largest LGBTQIA+ Chamber of Commerce in North America. I am committed to diversity; I invite you to read my diversity statement here.
My goal is to compassionately create space for new possibilities. I nurture the emotional & psychological well-being of individuals and couples by exploring their relationship with themselves, their families, and their larger social community.
I guide my clients to listen with an open heart and to communicate more effectively so that you can feel more fully heard and validated. As a result, relationships are healed and repaired, allowing you to navigate your daily life and life’s transitions with increased ease, so you will flourish and grow individually, as a couple, and in your family.
I work with a variety of clinical issues including: Marriage & Couple issues; Stepfamily/Blended Family issues; Pregnancy Loss & Infertility; Premarital Counseling/Relationship Enhancement; Parent-Teen Relationship Dynamics; Anxiety; Depression; ADHD; Gender Dysphoria; Self Esteem; Life Transitions
I work with both traditional and non-traditional relationships, including open and poly relationships.
