Specialized Couples and Individual Counseling and Marriage Therapy in Seattle, WA

How I work
I offer talk therapy in a variety of formats, however my focus tends to be on relationships and couples. Individual therapy often deals with relationships as well, even if you are the only one on the couch. You will find that your relationship will improve as a result of individual therapy. My role as the therapist in the room with you is one of an advocate, helping you identify your goals and pushing you into the discomfort that change often brings. I will support you through that change and help you move into the person you have longed to be. This change is especially challenging in couples work, which is why seeing a therapist who focuses on relationship and couples counseling will likely yield the result you are hoping for.

Attachment Theory
Pacific Northwest Family Therapy is a practice with a Marriage and Family Therapist who loves relationships! We are in so many different relationship throughout our life, and at times relationships can be dysfunctional or abusive or confusing. My belief is that the earliest relationships we formed have the most significant impact on how we get through and handle life transitions, as well as, future relationships with others. My work with clients is often seen through an attachment lens. I will help you figure out what type of attachment you had with your parents or primary caregivers and then use this information to help you see your childhood and current self from that lens. As a result you can begin to use that information to recognize unhealthy decision making in both your own life and in your relationships. This attachment information in used in both the work with individual clients and clients I see as a couple.
