I have a psychodynamic orientation to counseling, an approach that is more organic and exploratory in nature. I view the therapeutic relationship as medicine, a chance for authentic human connection. My style is warm and informal. In session I seek to offer constructive challenge and I do this with kindness, compassion, and an abiding respect for what it means to be human.
I am currently in network with Regence and Premera.
My fee is $165 per session. If you have out-of-network benefits, I can supply a superbill to submit for reimbursement. I offer a sliding scale in select cases.
Counseling is a component of naturopathic schooling and it became increasingly clear that this was my main area of interest. I continue to draw on my background in naturopathic medicine and pursue continuing education in naturopathic approaches to mental health.
I offer medication management for patients struggling with mild-to-moderate anxiety and depression. This includes the prescribing of SSRI’s and SNRI’s. Medications like Adderall and Vyvanse for ADD and ADHD, and benzodiazepines, for anxiety, are outside my scope of practice. For more complex mental health conditions, working with a psychiatrist or a psychiatric nurse practitioner is highly recommended.
