About My Clients

Maybe you've been thinking about therapy for a while, but you've been hesitant to give it a try. You know you have things in your past you'd like to explore, but you're worried you might feel worse if you "bring it all up again" in therapy. That feeling you have inside of you is trying to tell you something, and the longer you ignore it, the louder it will get. Therapy is a safe place to allow that voice to be heard so that you can heal and live your best life!

My Background and Approach

I have a background in individual and family therapy with adults, adolescents, and children. I received my master's degree in mental health counseling from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and my bachelor's degree in psychology from Oregon State University. My therapeutic career started in a residential treatment program for teens in Seattle in 2009 and I later moved into outpatient therapy. Modern neuroscience teaches us that emotional harm actually re-wires our brains, and that a safe and caring relationship is the vehicle to its repair. This is why I focus my efforts on creating a trusting relationship with my clients, centered around honesty, deep curiosity and listening with compassion and understanding. I believe that a therapy relationship is both a source of information and an avenue for change creation. The relationship that we develop will be unique and will become a place for you to try on new ways of relating to others and have new relational experiences.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that our emotions are just as valid a source of information as our intellect. That is why I explore what my clients' emotional experience is saying rather than trying to dampen or change them. I also actively fight against mental health stigma in my personal and professional life, and support organizations that do the same. I consider myself to be a feminist, but that doesn't mean that I dislike men. I believe that gender equality benefits everyone, regardless of gender identity. I do not claim to be an expert on racial and systemic oppression, but I am actively and regularly learning more on the issue and challenging my own biases. I have lived in Seattle since 2009, I'm married, and I have a dog named Rosie.
