About

“Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you need to do it alone.” - Lisa Olivera. Change isn’t easy—I don’t need to tell you that. You’ve been trying to do this on your own for a while now. You may feel stuck, wondering how you can get out of your self-defeating patterns, move forward from trauma or grief, or gain more self-confidence to reach your goals. If you face systemic oppression due to being BIPOC, LGBTQ, an immigrant, or disabled, you have probably faced even more obstacles to your healing, including in the therapy room. I’m here to help with culturally informed, compassionate care.
My practice is named Rising Resilience because I help clients tap into the strengths they already possess, the ones that have helped them survive up until now, in order to move beyond merely surviving to thriving and enjoying life again. From there, we will build your emotional toolbox so you can handle what life throws at you and rise above your challenges.
You are worthy and capable of healing and happiness! Please contact me today to schedule a free 20 minute phone consultation to see if my services are a good fit for you. Because I provide Telehealth, I can serve clients anywhere in Washington state, not just the greater Seattle area. I look forward to talking soon!
