Let's Connect (253) 262-0102
My mission is clear: to guide individuals towards long-term solutions, instill healthy coping mechanisms, and cultivate positive relationships. For this reason I am drawn to clients who share a desire for overall well-being and are ready to confront negative tendencies. This often involves exploring challenging questions, a process that leads to a deeper understanding of oneself. In order to do this I delve into my clients' histories, recognizing that understanding the past is crucial to addressing present challenges. I am dedicated to cutting through the noise and fostering honest communication within a safe and supportive space.
As a clinician I specialize in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, and prenatal/postpartum support. My career began as a High School Counselor, working with teenagers and their families before I moved on to private practice. This background has equipped me with a unique toolbox, allowing me to connect with clients of all ages.
My goal is to help individuals find inner strength to process life's challenges, both past and present. Through a meticulous analysis of their histories and current lifestyles, I point out connections that may have been unclear to them, facilitating a transformative journey towards healing and the choice of a different, more fulfilling path.

What sets my approach apart is a keen awareness of societal factors at play: capitalism, racism, sexism, cultural expectations, and more. I believe that true healing requires acknowledging and navigating these influences. My ideal clients are those willing to engage in this introspection, leveraging their unique characteristics and perspectives to evolve into more confident versions of themselves.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy so in this way I am flexible and adaptable with the modalities I use. I make sure each session is specific to the client I'm working with at the time, their circumstances, and the things they have experienced in their life while also taking into account the way they process things.
