On our journey it can be helpful to have someone to help us read the narratives which often define our lives. Some of those narratives keep us from experiencing what we want for ourselves now and in the future. Since graduating with a Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in 2010, I have been working as a therapist with people in various stages of life. A relationship between a therapist and client can provide someone with a deep reflection of how they live and are experienced. I believe therapy can give us the opportunity to rediscover our story in a new way. Real change is possible.

Is something keeping you from being the partner, parent, friend or family member you want to be? When you're feeling sad or nervous or if you're struggling with a troubling memory it can be hard to be the person you always imagined you'd be at this time in your life. I want to help you hold the weight you're carrying and figure out what it is that's holding you back.

Effective therapy depends on a match between the client and therapist. Our first goal in therapy is to determine if the relationship is a good fit. Pay attention to your comfort level, with me. When you work with me, everything that comes up is important. You may know what issues you want to work on, or you may not. Maybe there is someone or something you have been meaning to grieve. Perhaps you have a gut feeling that it's time to reach out for help. Maybe there are things you haven't told anyone, and would like to. Maybe, you need a supportive person to listen. Therapy is not always about fixing or changing anything.

It is powerful, life changing and brave when we take steps toward understanding ourselves and how we interact with the world around us. At first this can sound daunting but with a solid set of tools and healthy introspection and exploration, this is a superpower. This is where our freedom lies. Things in life are often not clearly delineated. Oftentimes, we judge ourselves harshly and feel like we can’t move ahead. In therapy, we will work collaboratively to help you weather life's ups and downs while developing self-compassion.
