Announcement icon Currently I am offering remote sessions using the HIPAA compliant and encrypted Doxy.me platform accessible via laptop, tablet, or phone.
I provide individual counseling to adults in my private practice in Seattle's Wallingford area. I frequently use Lifespan Integration and Mindfulness with my clients. My goal is to help individuals cope with life's stressors, to support assisted self-discovery, and to help clients build skills to reduce suffering to engage more fully in life. Areas we can explore together include: life transitions, depression, trauma history, grief/loss/bereavement, caregiver stress, anxiety, relationship challenges, work/life balance, chronic health conditions, and family dynamics.
My practice is unique in a few ways. First, I schedule appointments on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays. Weekend appointments are convenient for those already overbooked during the week.
Second, as a psychotherapist and certified nutritionist trained at Bastyr, we can explore nutrition strategies to support your mental health as an adjunct to psychotherapy. Whole foods, some supplements, and other lifestyle changes are non-pharmaceutical interventions we can use to improve symptoms related to anxiety, depression, fatigue, and grief.
