Therapists Specializing in Existential Crisis & Challenges in Seattle

Whenever you’re faced with an important decision or life transition, it’s natural for larger questions about meaning and purpose to arise. Although existential challenges can surface at any time, they may be especially common upon entering a new life stage or when self-identity starts to shift, such as when making a career change or deciding to recommit to (or leave) a relationship. When these experiences lead to intense preoccupation with questions of greater meaning, feelings of a loss of control, and worry about the future, it can amount to existential crisis.

Therapy can help both in moments of existential crisis and in general exploration of one's values and existential beliefs. Some therapists even provide existential therapy, a philosophically-rooted approach that focuses on meaning, freedom, connection, and mortality.

Hello, welcome to my page! Before starting sessions with me, we will determine if we are a good fit because I believe that treatments work best when you feel comfortable with your therapist. I value increasing your self-efficacy, self-compassion, and hope in our sessions and in your every day life. Often we are held back from living our best lives by fear, doubt, and uncertainty. My mission is to help you identify where you are stuck, envision what a meaningful life looks like to you, and embolden you to make effective changes. You do not have to deal with your struggles alone.

You are not sure what you need, where to turn; you feel strange reaching out for support - you wonder if you are even worth helping. You’ve tried a lot of things to help yourself - mindfulness, meditation, yoga, exercise and more. You are relieved for a time, until it all comes back, sometimes worse than before. On the outside, you pride yourself on being an intelligent person, a strong individual, a committed worker, a loyal friend. Perhaps you identify as a member of the LBGTQ+ community. Yet these days you find yourself spinning inside. You can’t shake these feelings of being out of control. Sometimes your behavior really is.

I can assure you: you are worth it. You’ve decided to seek out therapy because a part of you already knows this. You don’t yet know how, but you are ready to lead a mindful, insight-filled life – both inwardly & outwardly. You are ready to access that deep calm and compassion within yourself, no matter what difficulties you face every day.

Starting therapy can be intimidating. That's OK. I'm here to make the experience as stress-free and accessible as possible.

Indivdual therapy looks different for everyone. We may work on skills related to managing anxiety, navigating relationships, processing past trauma, or practicing mindfulness. My intention is to work with my clients towards meeting their individual goals and living as their authentic selves. I view therapy as a collaborative process. When coming into a session with me, you can expect to be met with warmth and nonjudgemental acceptance. The therapeutic relationship I create with my clients is the most important part of this process and I collaborate with my clients throughout to find the most effective evidence-based treatments and create a personalized experience towards wellness.

Are you an adult tech professional that is overwhelmed by your duties at work and at home? If so, I hope I can help you. The majority of my clients are people like you. They have stayed with me because, as one of them has told me, ‘You're the first therapist I've met that doesn't need me to explain what it's like to try to ship a product.’ I look forward to hearing from you soon.
