I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 10 years of experience specializing in Autism, Teens, and Relationship Issues.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Seattle, WA
Working with teens is one of my favorite populations and specializations. Having worked as a mental health specialist in a school setting for several years, I have a deep understanding of social, systemic, and internalized pressures that most teens face often leading to anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties. I strive to provide a safe and relaxed environment to talk about what teens are going though and identify ways to move forward based on what they want to achieve.
I am a trained couples/relationship therapist and I enjoy working with individuals to develop insight into their own relationship issues with partners, family members, or friends. Through our work we will explore your wants and needs for your relationships and identify steps to work towards those goals. I support clients with increasing insight to relationship patterns, the origins, and identifying boundaries and communication strategies to communicate those needs.
I have been working with autistic individuals for over a decade. Through my experiences working as therapist, parent coach, and educator in the field of autism, I have recognized a huge need to work with autistic teens and adults who often “fall through the cracks” when it comes to services and support. I am a neurodiversity affirming therapist, meaning that I view autism as a neurological difference that is naturally occurring variant in human neurology.
