About

* I am not currently accepting therapy clients. * Welcome! I am a licensed psychologist providing therapy in West Seattle. I believe that our work should be collaborative and will consider your strengths and preferences to tailor therapy to meet your needs. My style is informed by a relational orientation with the integration of evidenced-based strategies, including neuro-psychological, trauma-informed, feminist, and mindfulness approaches. By being adaptive, I can support you in making changes that can lead to a more satisfying life for you and your family.
I work with adolescents and adults around issues of identity development, life transition, interpersonal trauma, developmental and behavioral challenges, learning disorders, and mood disorders (including anxiety and depression). I also work with clients who identify across the gender spectrum as well as clients with LGBTIA+ identities.
I also offer animal-assisted therapy with my co-therapist dog, Lilly. Animal Assisted Therapy can provide additional healing through reducing feelings of depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. Lilly can provide emotional and physical comfort for clients who are experiencing distress by relaxation through petting.
