About My Clients

I provide counseling and therapy services to individuals who are in the process of healing from the pain of trauma, building confidence, renewing self esteem, and developing practical skills to manage anxiety and depression. As a counselor, I use a warm, compassionate, and empathetic approach to support you in building resilience to overcome stress and meet your goals.

My Background and Approach

It is my goal as a counselor, to help you reconnect to your innate ability to heal and restore balance in your life. I specialize in providing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. My work is holistic; informed by attachment and family systems theories, interpersonal neurobiology, and a foundation of mindfulness practice and strength based approaches. I am trauma-informed, body positive, and an LGTBQI ally.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe everyone should have access to affordable, quality mental health care. I have dedicated the last 10 years to doing my part to create positive change for those who experience homelessness, trauma, addiction, and food insecurity in the greater Puget Sound region. When not engaged in clinical practice, I enjoy collecting records, growing organic vegetables and flowers, and tending to my flock of chickens with my husband and son.
