I am an experienced and effective systemic therapist, passionate about helping clients reach their goals through an integrated approach.
Counselor in Washington
I am trained in Discernment, Gottman Method Couples, and Emotion-focused therapies and have extensive experience helping intimate partners through change, stress, and hardships. I have experience and enjoy working with LGBTQ+ and polyamorous clients.
I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, an evidence-based approach initially developed to treat those with Borderline Personality Disorder but has been proven effective in treating a variety of diagnoses. People who have been diagnosed with a personality disorder may be on the receiving end of stigma and are especially vulnerable in treatment. I have experience working long-term with clients who struggle with the symptoms of a personality disorder diagnosis.
I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient treatment settings for substance use disorders where I gained experience working as both a substance use counselor and mental health therapist. Those living with addiction are especially vulnerable and in need of competent and effective care. Often, we treat the individual who is addicted, but it is the system that needs support as well.
