I specialize in working with young adults, adolescents, and their families in individual, couple, and family therapy. Sometimes we worry that coming to therapy means something is wrong. I believe it means something is right. Often, my clients find themselves facing more decisions and questions about who they are and what they want out of their lives and relationships than ever before. This is an important time in life when many people ask themselves: How can I feel like what I do matters?

***I am no longer accepting new clients at this time.*** Psychotherapy can help you make sense of complicated feelings, gain insight into relational patterns, and begin to move forward in areas of your life where you feel stuck. My focus is to help you untangle struggles, set meaningful goals, revise problematic narratives about yourself, and re-orient you toward your values. My integrative approach is informed by psychodynamic, feminist, multicultural, relational, and behaviorist theories. Above all, I value the therapeutic relationship and your personal growth.

*****Very limited availability for new clients; wait list spots available***** I aim to cultivate an atmosphere in therapy that is real and honest - where my clients feel the freedom to cut the crap, not worry about saying the "right" thing, and speak candidly about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, without fear of judgment. The things that we hash through in counseling can be messy, and I deeply appreciate the vulnerability this process requires. I find that a therapeutic relationship like this - one that's safe, comfortable, authentic, and honest - is where so much growth happens.

I am a psychology associate under the supervision of Dr. Maury Joseph (license number: PSY1001241). In therapy, I seek to provide a warm and non-judgmental space for you to process your concerns. Life is hard, and we often find we find ourselves caught up in challenges in our relationships, in our personal lives, and at work. We want more-- more freedom, more purpose, or more peace. Whether your life feels overwhelming or underwhelming, I believe that the care, courage, and curiosity that you find in therapy can go a long way in helping you find new possibilities and solutions that work for you.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Washington or for a Washington ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
