Traditional Approaches | Complementary Approaches

I offer the following therapies in both traditional and complementary formats. You may be more comfortable with traditional methods, or you may wish to explore alternative ones. We can discuss the options and chose what works best for you.

Individual Adult Psychotherapy
is for one person in an ongoing therapeutic conversation with the therapist. Such a conversation is different from social interaction in that I am available to you in an objective way. The relationship that develops between us becomes part of your healing process.

Couples Counseling is for two people who are seen together. I only work with couples where one of them is chronically or seriously ill. Being able to talk with each other about how the illness effects your relationship is important. With both of you present, I can observe how you interact, talk with you about what I see and suggest new ways of relating.

Adult Family Therapy is for adult members of a family. This can include two generations, siblings and extended family. For instance, I can help you to resolve family issues that interfere with caring for aging parents.

Insurance coverage: I am a preferred or participating provider for Cigna, First Choice, Magellan, Premera Blue Cross, Regence Blue Shield and Uniform Medical. If you have insurance other than these, you could use your plan's "out-of-network" provision.
