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. 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.
