We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

I have a collaborative approach to counseling where I work with clients to help them identify areas for change and to make changes by setting specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-sensitive goals. To do this, I incorporate evidence-based treatments, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness meditation, and other modalities. Generally, this involves changing or adjusting our relationship to our thoughts and changing behaviors that negatively impact our functioning and get in the way of us living meaningful lives based on our values and what is important to us.

I am currently not accepting new clients! Please check out my colleagues on our website! I believe that counseling is a journey to self-discovery that you are choosing to stop taking alone. Everything you need is already within you; sometimes it just takes a little guidance to really make the changes you want to make in your life. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ clients, non-monogamous and kinky adults, sex workers, and those with alternative spiritualities. I am sex-positive and body-positive. I also work with people who have acute diagnoses, and I have experience working with folks who have been involuntarily hospitalized.

"One of the things that baffles me...is how there can be so much lingering stigma with regards to mental illness..."- Carrie Fisher. I find beauty and strength in these matter-of-fact words. I wholeheartedly agree that mental health conditions that cause distress should be destigmatized. I view people as inherently strong, ultimately resilient and inherently having great value, even when individuals suffer from mental health strains and conditions. A strength-centered approach informs both how I work with clients, and my outlook on life. My quest is to help you also find, or remember, the worth, value & resilience inherent in you.

I believe that people are already whole and that what we perceive as our brokenness usually comes from some kind of disconnection from ourselves and other people. Anxiety, depression, a general feeling of loneliness or feeling unloveable, all these stem from these disconnections. I value and honor each person's individual experiences and needs, acknowledging that many of us lose our sense of our uniqueness along life's path. I hope to help you learn more about your self-worth in the face of previous relationships, families, and systems that have told you you aren't good enough.

Saint Irenaeus As a clinician I work with individuals and couples struggling with a variety of issues including relationships, anxiety, depression, addiction, food/body/movement issues, anger, and grief. More often than not, all of these mental health struggles are rooted in some form of deeper wound (trauma) that must be listened to and addressed before the resulting symptoms will begin to change. By treating the "roots" of the problem you are facing we will see the symptoms begin to change naturally. The goal of therapy is ultimately to become more alive and free!

Peer Relationships in Alki Beach, Seattle

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Alki Beach, Seattle

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem.
