Accepting Clients

I see clients online-only. I'd love to help you make changes to their alcohol or drug use (even if you just want to cut back, not quit).

About My Clients

Many of my patients struggle with controlling or abstaining from substance use, however you do not need to have experienced addiction to begin therapy with me. I especially enjoy helping patients better manage insomnia, ADHD, stress, boundaries, self-esteem, social anxiety, and existential anxiety. My patients have a range of identities and experiences. I particularly enjoy working with neurodivergent and gender-diverse adults and those who feel like an "outsider."

My Background and Approach

I see therapy as a collaborative process – while I may have more specialized knowledge in certain areas, my clients are the experts on their own lives. I know from personal and professional experience that our needs do not cleanly match up with a workbook or treatment manual, so I strive to offer interventions that are both supported by scientific research and theory, and tailored creatively to your needs. Much of my therapy work is geared toward helping clients make sense of and make space for challenging experiences and feelings rather than trying to avoid them, and build confidence in working toward personally-meaningful goals. I try to provide tools and insights that will help not only during our work together but throughout life. I primarily use tools from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am a licensed addiction counselor and am pursuing my mental health license under supervision by a licensed psychologist.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe it is a privilege to be trusted to accompany someone on their recovery journey, and I aim to provide an affirming therapeutic space to support my clients in living a richer, more meaningful life. I believe that shame and blame have no place in treatment of mental health or substance use disorder symptoms. When I'm not working, I enjoy playing drums, cycling, and listening to podcasts (Psychology in Seattle and By the Book are personal faves).
