Men's Issues. I specialize in counseling for men. Most guys want to find solutions quickly and efficiently without wasting time talking about feelings and delving into the past. I have helped countless men create better relationships, find their passion for life and access the power of their masculinity and integrity. If you are a man or know of a man who needs a little help, give me a call. --male counselor, Redmond, Washington.
Men's Issues. I have a great deal of respect for men who seek the help of a counselor. It takes courage to confront what is not working in our lives, or in our relationships and admit we could benefit from the help of a trained professional. As a man I understand the tendency to want to 'handle' our own problems. When we are unsure how to work through a particular challenge or maybe we are having difficulty communicating our concerns in a way that is not hurtful to those near to us, counseling can provide the clarity and develop existing skills in order to bring about meaningful change. As a counselor nothing is more fulfilling than supporting men who make changes that improve their life as well as the lives of their wife and children, thereby strengthening the entire family system. I have lived long enough to experience much of what life has to offer and as a husband, father, son, and know first hand the challenges and demands of being a man in today's world. These responsibilities and demands are sometimes not understood by those dear to us. Not surprisingly, men frequently feel misunderstood or unappreciated by those closest to them. The good news is this can change. As men, we have great potential to bring about positive change to our entire family. Often, I witness seemingly small changes take root and affect every member of the family in a positive way. Facilitating this work is an honor and enormously rewarding for me. --male counselor in Greenlake area of Seattle, Washington.
Men's Issues. My niches are in the arena of anxiety, depression, sexuality, relationships, spirituality and men's issues.

Mental Health (chronic disorders). I can help with depression and mood disorders. Therapy ought to be the place where ALL of a person is invited in, not only the suffering self, but the future self waiting for expression. I believe also that we live in a time of fear, pervasive and subtle messages that affect us all, and the work of therapy is to metabolize that fear by making it conscious and by making decisions. I believe this work makes a person less afraid. Being well-adjusted to an odd culture is not a measure of health. More and more, the real risk for a person is how to live deeply, to have one's own experience and meaning--no matter how it looks and feels. --male counselor, Ballard area of Seattle, Washington.

Parenting Counselor or Counseling
Parenting Problems & Skills. Counseling to insure the basic elements of parenting that are needed for stability, emotional well-being and to help raise healthy, well-adjusted kids.--female counselor, Edmonds, Washington.
Parents seek out counseling when concern for their child becomes too difficult to handle alone. Often they just want to know if something serious is going on or if what they are experiencing is "normal". They may feel anxious and worried about being judged. Parents who seek out support are acting courageously and want the best for their child.
I approach child work collaboratively, which means working with the parents is essential. I try to provide a non-judgmental space for parents to explore their parenting as well as their own childhood to come to a better understanding of the dynamics created between themselves and their child. Sometimes meeting with just parents provides enough support to create healthy change in the child. Most of the time parenting work takes the family to a good point, but the child still benefits from being seen for individual treatment. --female counselor, in Madison Park area of Seattle, Washington.
Parenting Problems & Skills. Adolescent mental health, depression and anxiety, parenting support, impacts of trauma, health and wellness, diet and nutrition, stress management. --female counselor, in Queen Anne area of Seattle, Washington.
Parenting Problems & Skills, specifically addressing a child with Autism. My first counseling experience was working with a young Autistic boy. Although I do not currently work with children diagnosed with autism I enjoy offering support to family members. It can be hard to know where to turn and how to get the support you need. Children with autism can be overwhelming at times, they can also offer endless rewards for parents. It takes time and patience to learn to connect with another individual that does not connect emotionally in the same way you do. Once you learn where they are coming from and ways to connect with them the connection can be amazing. I am here to offer support, encouragement and a safe place during these challenging times.

Through the process of sex therapy, you can explore the factors that influence your sexual functioning and enjoyment, creating changes where possible, in order to expand your sense of pleasure, joy, intimacy and connection with yourself and others.
Sexuality is a fundamental part of our human experience, but it doesn't always come naturally. Even when it has been a source of joy and pleasure in the past, our sexual functioning can change over our lifespan; it can be affected by age, physical health, psychological issues and relationship dynamics.
I am committed to helping you identify and address the factors (medical, psychological and interpersonal) that are preventing your sexual satisfaction.

Transitions (life change) Counselor or Counseling
Women in transition and the anxiety and depression that can result from these transitions. -- female counselor, Shoreline, Washington.
Transitions (life changes). Life transitions that create new identity struggles. When life turns out "different than expected" it can be the result of a divorce, job loss, relationship meltdown, or family disappointments. It's hard to know how to move through the flood of emotions that may emerge with the chaos. I work with clients to uncover old, outmoded belief systems that no longer work, and identify their authentic self that may lay hidden beneath these beliefs. --female counselor, Bellevue, Washington.

They may have already identified “the problem”—either on their own or in previous therapy—but have not been able to successfully make lasting changes in their thoughts, feelings and behavior. Through our work, my aim is to identify troubling or destructive behavior and to make constructive changes with the aim of establishing more positive patterns. --female counselor, Bellevue, Washington.
Transitions (life changes). Mid-life Concerns. Mid-life has it's own special issues - empty nesting, career disappointment, adult children, in-law children, elder parents, job loss, on-set of medical issues, divorce, infidelity, death. My speciality is addressing the concerns that rise when the reality of life causes people to ask "is that all there is?"--female counselor, Mukiteo, Washington.
Transitions (life changes). Transitional periods are often a time that people require extra support and guidance. Through transitions, stress is increased, and sometimes unhealthy coping mechanisms emerge, or we start to feel like we're falling apart. You may feel lost, or like you can't regain your footing. Becoming a parent, going through break-ups, adolescence, moving, and transitioning to/from college can pose particular challenge. Working with a skilled professional can help you to get moving in the right direction. --female counselor, North area of Seattle, Washington.
Transitions (life changes). LIFE TRANSITION is the area in which I most like to work. Are you a woman or a man just out of college? leaving home? getting married? having a child? getting divorced? facing an illness? All these situations come with difficulties that can throw one off center. I help each person find their inner voice to lead them to a more full and meaningful life. Paying close attention to thoughts, emotions and body feelings is the first step. The goal is the integration of all aspects of one's being. --female counselor, Downtown area of Seattle, Washington.

Transitions (life changes) --female counselor, Lynnwood, Washington.
Transitions (life changes). As we move through different stages of our lives, transitions can feel, confusing, overwhelming, and frightening. Changes in relationships and marriage, our career, parenting, changes in our health, becoming a caregiver, moving, the passing of a loved one, or retirement are some of the challenges most of us certainly will face. They bring tremendous stress, and oftem bring forth consequences and reactions that are unexpected. I like to help people regain a sense of empowerment and an awareness of choices. In this process, we can experience transition as an opportunity for personal transformation. --male counselor, Ravenna area of Seattle, Washington.
Transitions (life changes). Relationship upheaval, divorce, blending families, stage-of-life, parenting and underlying or resulting trauma, anxiety, and depression. --female counselor, Kirkland, Washington.

Women's Issues. I welcome the opportunity to counsel both women and men. In this, I do maintain a focus and active interest in women's issues. I believe that depression, anxiety, body image issues etc. express their symptoms differently in women and men and should be treated uniquely. My life experiences, both personally and professionally have fully equipped me to treat these issues as they apply specifically to women and men and I look forward to meet your needs as they arise. --female counselor, Bellevue, Washington.
I specialize in helping women let got of being "good girls" so that they can be truly great. "Good girls" are women who take a lot of personal responsibility, which is actually a great quality, UNTIL it's done to excess. Good girls are smart, sweet, helpful, humble, and kind, but they aren't supposed to be TOO smart, happy, or successful. They've been taught they should always be polite, civil and forgiving, and never disagreeable, loud, or angry. Being a Good Girl is exhausting and diminishes women's intrinsic value. When personal responsibility becomes self-censure, when you believe some feelings are "unacceptable," and when you value keeping the peace over expressing your needs, then you have a problem. This self-repression can result in depression, suppressed anger, chronic anxiety, and general life suckiness. I help you stop the cycle of shaming self-censure and find your true voice. --female counselor, Seattle, Eastlake area, Washington.
