Welcome to the Eastside Couples Therapy Secure Client Area

Eastside Couples Therapy is an award-winning counseling practice offering relationship therapy using the Gottman Couple Therapy Method, as well as individual counseling for married, pre-marital, or partnered adults in Washington State. I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming provider and I work with both traditional and non-traditional relationships, including open and poly relationships.

I offer a 30-minute complimentary consultation; it is an opportunity to meet me and discuss what brought you in for therapy. It is a chance for you to get a feel for whether I am a good fit for your needs. Decades of research show that lasting change is the result of three essential ingredients: a warm, trusting relationship where you feel understood, a safe space where you can share your thoughts and feelings, and the opportunity to gain insight into your experience. By the end of the consultation, we will talk about our fit for therapy and hopefully schedule an appointment to start the assessment process.

You will receive all the practice paperwork prior to your initial consultation. If the paperwork is not completed 48 hours prior to the session, you will be asked to reschedule the consultation. You will also receive an appointment reminder 48 hours prior to the consult.

Once we have both decided that we are a good fit, you will move to the assessment phase of counseling which can take 1-4 sessions. I take time to delve more deeply into what brought you into therapy, how your experiences have shaped who you are, and what changes you want to create in your life.

Getting to know you helps ensure that you and I are on the same page and ready to collaborate on your goals. You and I will work closely to create a set of specific goals for your therapeutic journey, as well as plan for how to achieve those goals.

Once you have completed the assessment phase, you will then meet with me regularly to work on the goals you have set. Therapy is the pathway to change that helps you feel better and engage more fully in life. I normally recommend that we start with weekly sessions in order for you to get the most out of the counseling process.
