About My Clients
My clients experience relationships and sensations uniquely - or want to support those that do as parents, partners, or friends. Often this includes elements of overthinking, processing sensations and experiences super fast and/or super slow.
My Background and Approach
I help by breaking down big struggles into manageable steps you can take towards growth. I help families communicate with each other and schools about needs for relating, relaxing, and learning. This can include discussing IEP/504 accommodations, considering impacts of being highly sensitive, and recognizing the barriers in culture that limit access to what we need to live peacefully. My training and degree is in Mental Health Counseling from Western Washington University. I have earned certificates in Washington as a Child Mental Health Specialist and as a Disability Mental Health Specialist. I also offer clinical supervision.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I offer skills to manage intense emotions. Our bodies hold protection, memories, and expectations but we don't often have language for so much of our experiences, especially early ones. No matter a person's age, it often helps to have a space to develop understanding practice how to shift out of tension and into ease. Living in a world with so much suffering means that we all have to build skills to shift the systems around us. I have learned that racial justice connects to so much of the healing that I seek to have and offer.
