About My Clients

Sometimes, it's really obvious when you're ready to see a therapist. Sometimes, it has been a slow revelation -- maybe your old patterns aren't working for you anymore. or you're ready to make a change in your life or relationships. Maybe there's a huge new thing coming down the road, or little transitions are just getting to feel really overwhelming. I would love to help you figure out how best to face these changes, individually or in healthy relationships.

My Background and Approach

I completed my MA in Couples and Family Therapy from the Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry, with a 20-month clinical internship at Atlantic Street Center in Seattle. My approach to therapy is systemic and relationship-oriented, and although I have advanced training, I believe you are the expert on your life and your experiences. Although my degree is from a School of Theology and Ministry, and I am a provisional Deacon in the United Methodist Church, my therapeutic approach is not Christian-specific. Rather, I focus on assisting clients to identify what from their spiritual or religious background is life-giving, and helping them to use those resources toward their goals in counseling. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, board games, choral singing and spending time with my family and cat. Please note, I practice in two different locations, and the spaces are differently accessible, with different fee structures. I'm happy to answer any questions via email.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a feminist, a Christian, and I strive to be an ally to the LGBTQ community. I am straight-identified and cis-gender, but grew up in a blended family which included two stepmoms. Although I am formally connected with the United Methodist Church as a clergy person, I stand firmly on the side of the belovedness and full sacred worth of all God's queer children, and their full inclusion in the life and ministry of the Church.
