My Background and Approach

I am a marriage and family therapist through and through. My brain can't help but see the world in the context of relationships and systems. I hold a Master's Degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy; I am also licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in WA and OR. I am most successful with clients who want to increase their insight and understanding of their situation; who have willingness to change and grow; and who are ready to take responsibility for their own actions. Clients often appreciate my direct communication style and my tendency toward being transparent and collaborative. Couples tell me that my ability to hold space for each of their perspectives, as well as my tendency to “translate” their experiences to one another, help them overcome the barriers they feel in communication and support them in being more vulnerable and assertive in their relationships. Families tell me that my ability to be on everyone’s team at the same time helps them feel safe.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I celebrate the unique relationships that people have to their bodies, sexuality, religion, partner(s), chosen or biological family, race and culture.....all the ways a person or people might experience themselves and the world! I am a white, cis, straight, and able-bodied individual (among several other privileged identities); as such, I believe it's my responsibility as a human and therapist to be aware of how this impacts my interactions and experiences, and to always examine how my identities influence my thinking. I am not fearful of holding myself accountable to questioning and catching my assumptions or mistakes. I am committed to creating the safest place possible in my room. I participate in a monthly consultation group with other social-justice minded clinicians where we examine and challenge our biases, including the impact of White Supremacy culture on clients in the Vancouver area. I also regularly pursue information and media from non-dominant culture sources.
