I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State
and a Licensed Psychologist in France. I am a warm and attentive therapist, bilingual in English and French, and sensitive to cultural and religious differences. If you are feeling stuck and you are not sure how to move on, we can work together to overcome your current challenges.
My approach to therapy is interactive and solution focused. While staying compassionate and supportive, I like to tailor my methods to my client's individual needs. I use ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention) for OCD, skills building, Psycho-education, and Mindfulness, within a Cognitive and Behavioral approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Together, we work on building your strengths and attaining the personal growth you wish to accomplish.
I specialize in helping adults who struggle with the following issues:
- Anxiety, in particular OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Panic Attacks, Phobias, Social Anxiety, Performance Anxiety, and Generalized Anxiety.
My training includes a Psychodynamic perspective from France, a Cognitive and Behavioral approach from the US, with a focus on Family Systems and teenager development. For the last several years, my emphasis has been on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD. I consult and meet regularly with colleagues who also specialize in anxiety disorders.
I look forward to welcoming you in my office.
