I create a comfortable easeful space in therapy. When we work together, you'll be able to create new beliefs and move toward higher levels of growth, awareness, peace and joy.  I help individuals move through sadness, anxiety, trauma, grief and improve relationships. As a holistic psychotherapist, I believe we all have an innate ability to heal and transform. One of my specialties is helping individuals heal from past traumatic events. I also collaborate with immigration attorneys, preparing evaluations such as vawa, u-visa, asylum and hardship.

2/8/2021- Hi there. At this time, we are limiting our operations to existing clients. If you’re a prospective client, feel free to submit your contact information so that we can let you know when we reopen this Spring. A few reasons our clients come to therapy: 1. "I'm tired all the time" 2. "I'm frustrated." 3. "My supervisor doesn’t know what he/she is doing!" 4. "I overthink everything." 5. "My partner does not listen to me.” There are many, many other reasons that people seek help. Please know that you are not alone. I cannot say it enough: You are not alone! We look forward to being helpful to you.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Washington with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice.

MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
