Inner Wisdom Seattle Offers Personalized Therapy in WA State: Tailored to Your Unique Needs

Supporting You In Living An Authentic Life- Providing Online Therapy

I specialize in supporting individuals dealing with anxiety, trauma, life transitions, and those in the LGBTQ+ community. My goal is to help you embrace self-acceptance, even when it feels out of reach. We’ll work together to find practical ways to make life feel more manageable and meaningful.

Embracing Authenticity: Empowering Your Journey of Self-Discovery

Do you function “well,” but struggle with feeling like you’re too much, too sensitive, or too misunderstood in everyday life? Are existential concerns or a big life transition making you feel overwhelmed? Does shame underlie your relationships or internal sense of safety?

My clients often come to therapy feeling a bit fragmented. They may be “on top of things,” but they still feel ashamed, anxious, or depressed. They may be able to fit in with others when needed, but there’s still a sense of feeling outcasted or different. Finally, they certainly might have received some benefits from past therapy, but they still feel like they need more depth or introspection. 

My goal in therapy is to provide you with a safe space to better understand your patterns and develop a more authentic sense of self. Together, we will explore your emotional landscape and uncover new ways to connect to your inner strengths. My hope is that our work together will help you feel empowered to make choices that align with your truest values. 

Ultimately, I want you to feel comfortable in our work. Sometimes that means wrapping yourself up in your favorite blanket when we meet. Sometimes it means sharing a song, poem, or social media post that resonates with you. It could also mean eating a snack or doing some kind of tactile creative activity while we talk. This is all okay with me. I embrace you doing what makes you feel the most comfortable during our sessions- all your needs are welcome.

Eye Movement Desensitization And Reprocessing

EMDR

EMDR is a groundbreaking treatment for trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief, and chronic illness. As an online EMDR therapist, I aim to support you in reconciling the disturbing parts of your past or present. We’ll work at a reasonable pace based on your goals and comfort. 

I’ll give you the coping skills you need to manage stress, and you will learn how to shift negative thoughts into more realistic beliefs. With time, I am confident you can start feeling more empowered and less stagnant in your daily life.

Somatic Mind-Body Therapy

Somatic therapy is rooted in the belief that the mind and body are inherently connected. You store emotions in your body, and building body awareness can help you heal from past traumas and feel more embodied in daily life.

Unlike traditional talk therapy, somatic therapy helps you unpack stored emotions in the body and resolve behavioral patterns rooted in past experiences, making it a helpful component of trauma therapy and mental health well-being.

LGBT

LGBTQ+

LGBTQ+ therapy often includes identifying, exploring, and achieving goals in an affirming, compassionate environment. If you want to show up in the world authentically, you deserve support to connect to your truth.

Many of my clients are in some kind of conflict- whether it’s systemic, familial, internal (or a combination of all three). I strive to provide a proactive professional stance to live a bold and wholehearted life. In our work, you are allowed to show up exactly as you are.

Life Transitions

Life Transitions

Life is always changing, but these changes can be tumultuous. All growth- even when it’s positive- can be stressful. My main goal is to help you cope with such dynamic changes in proactive, meaningful ways.

I am here to support you through any transition you may be experiencing. And if you’re brainstorming a potential change, we’ll work together to decide the next steps for moving forward. No matter where you are in the change process, therapy can be invaluable.

Anxiety Therapy

Many of my clients come to me for anxiety treatment because they find it challenging to navigate their intense emotions, often stemming from past trauma or other mental health struggles. Instead of avoiding or suppressing these feelings, embracing your emotions as valid and seeking to understand their impact is key.

Therapy can be an invaluable resource for your mental well-being. As an anxiety therapist in Seattle, WA, I provide support for those struggling with anxiety and overwhelm. It’s okay to feel the way you do, and therapy isn’t about erasing those emotions, but about understanding and intentionally tending to them with self-compassion.

Online Therapy

Online Therapy

Experience the convenience and comfort of virtual session with a dedicated therapist who understands the importance of creating a comfortable, supportive space for your healing journey. Online therapy provides you the convenience and flexibility to get support- without the commute or awkward waiting rooms. My style of therapy isn’t formal or rigid- our work will be dynamic, personalized to your needs, and collaborative.

I have a specialized focus in anxiety, adult ADHD, self- acceptance, life transitions, and trauma. I also believe advocacy is an essential part of mental health treatment, and I incorporate a systemic lens in everything I do. In addition, I wholeheartedly embrace a Health at Every Size approach. 

What You Can Expect From Our Therapy Work:

Regardless of what specific issue brings you to therapy, I will strive to hold compassionate space for you to identify goals, overcome limiting beliefs, and make changes in your life. Things don’t need to feel stagnant or bleak anymore. You can change. You can feel better. You can get to a place where you show up authentically with yourself and others.

My therapy practice honors the sacredness of the therapeutic relationship. This forms the core of our work and allows us to collaboratively focus on what is most important to you. My specific approaches are informed by person-centered, existential, IFS, relational, and somatic frameworks. In addition, I wholeheartedly embrace Health at Every Size (HAES) and work within a body acceptance/neutrality lens.
