Many people feel alone and lost in their lives.
I help brighten their path.
My name is Andrew Rogers and I am a licensed therapist with a masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University Seattle. Like many young adults, I had my own struggles feeling anxious, not knowing what to do with my life and overwhelmed by responsibilities.
Over the last 15 years, I've studied Western and Eastern philosophies, psychotherapy techniques, and skills to help make life more peaceful, enjoyable and significant. I find meaning in sharing wisdom with others struggling to find their way in life.
WHO I HELP
SINGLE ADULTS STRUGGLING WITH WORRY AND SOCIAL ANXIETY
It’s hard when you’re constantly feeling nervous and uncomfortable. Sometimes it gets so intense you feel like you can’t breathe and you want to crawl out of your skin. And yet, you long for friendships and meaningful relationships. I can help you adopt strategies to cope with your anxiety and build stronger relationships.
YOUNG PROFESSIONALS THAT FEEL AIMLESS AND LOOKING FOR MEANING AND PURPOSE
You're new to this whole "adulting" thing and it's harder than it seems. You may be stressing out about your career and direction for your life. You see how other people seem to have a focused purpose and you think you may have missed the boat. Perhaps you wish there was more to life than what you're currently experiencing. I help you identify the things that matter most to you and how you can start doing and living more purposefully.
MEN ADJUSTING TO MAJOR LIFE CHANGES
You're a male who struggles with the overwhelming roles and responsibilities.
Society puts a lot of pressure on men to perform and be successful. When big life changes take place (a career change, moving somewhere new, a marriage, breakup, becoming a parent, death of a loved one), it's normal to have a hard time adjusting to a new normal. I'll offer you support during these major transitions and give you tools to make the best of the next chapter in your life.
COUPLES CONSIDERING MARRIAGE
You and your partner are looking at the next step in the relationship, but there may be some uncertainty or even trepidation. What are the conversations we need to have before making the leap? Can we handle the inevitable conflict most marriages face? Do we have the right tools to communicate? I'll work with both of you to discover ways to prepare and enrich your relationship for the future.
I help clients change the way they perceive their issues, adopt mindful strategies to increase their overall wellbeing and happiness, and find balance in their life.
In order to truly experience change and growth, my clients are expected to do hard work. The people who gain the most out of therapy are the ones committed to action and willing to make an effort. This extends past the hour we meet every week. In our sessions, we will identify a practice or homework that you can commit to throughout the week to build your new skills. These can include readings, practicing mindfulness techniques, journaling or experimenting with new behaviors.
I draw from several different therapeutic models: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for individuals with anxiety and pain, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for clients with depression, Compassion-Focused Therapy for clients looking for happiness and contentment, and Lifespan Integration for people seeking relief from trauma.
