We all experience times in our lives where we encounter hardship, confusion and sadness. During these times we may feel stuck or overwhelmed, linger in negative patterns and question the bigger meaning of our lives. Additionally, growing up and in this increasingly hectic world requires each of us to adopt certain coping strategies that may no longer be serving us; from limiting beliefs about ourselves and our potential to outdated messages that may have clouded our internal vision. Learning new ways to understand ourselves by getting in touch with our deeper parts and feelings can offer new pathways toward healing and growth.

Please come exactly as you are. Whether you are new to therapy or have spent years working through various challenges, I invite you to come exactly as you are in this moment. We cannot move towards healing and change until we are permitted to be seen and heard as we are right now. I am committed to creating a warm, inviting, and non-judgmental space where you may feel safe to explore who you are now and who you wish to become. I also strongly value recognizing a person's position within the context of broader systems: family, culture, community, history and incorporate these elements when exploring one’s identity.

Loneliness and isolation are difficult to work through on our own. We may feel overwhelmed by depression and anxiety and have difficulty finding meaning. We can feel chased by persistent feelings of dissatisfaction, grief, or loss, and question our self-worth. It may feel increasingly difficult to "hold it together for" others in our lives. Even though we need help, we may feel skeptical about whether therapy is for us.

Sometimes in life we get stuck, and try as we might, our effort to un-stick is just so much wheel- spinning: no matter what we do, we remain in that rut, watching it deepen every time we accelerate. The rut might be caused by something small or by something very large. It can feel familiar, or be brand new, never experienced before. Sometimes it causes a subtle disturbance, a loss of harmony and balance. Sometimes it results in more pronounced symptoms: depression or anxiety or a change in our ability to constructively handle emotions like anger.

I am a clinical psychologist dedicated to providing collaborative, empathetic, client-centered care. I strive to create a supportive, non-judgmental, compassionate space for exploration and here-and-now processing to improve one’s quality of life. While historically the field of psychology has embraced a disease model that emphasizes pathology and deficits, I emphasize a “strength-based” approach. In addition to symptom reduction, I am equally invested in building resilience, identifying and promoting strengths, and improving psychological well-being and values-congruent living.

This involves telling your story and relating it back to the context of the therapeutic relationship.

I believe healing happens in and through relationship, which is increasingly backed by current neuroscience. As a result, I place the utmost importance on making sure the client feels safe, seen, heard, and known within the counseling space. Raised by two medical professionals, I am infinitely curious about the mind- body connection. I believe the two cannot be fully separated, as healing is a holistic process that involves the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of personhood.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Downtown, Seattle, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
