In my practice I work with both adults and teens ages 13 and up, and I particularly enjoy working with teen girls and young women on issues such as self-esteem and body image, school and familial struggles, trauma, and anxiety. I also gave birth to my first child and love working with new mothers on the unique challenges early motherhood presents. I work best with clients who are motivated, open, and engaged in the therapeutic process.

Do you feel like a misunderstood weirdo, even though you might look normal? I’ve got your back. Feel cramped by societal expectations and want to find the freedom and empowerment to be fully yourself? Step into my (virtual) office. I want to work with you if you are on the precipice of change. Or in the throes of shedding the skin of your former self. Or eyeball-deep in crisis. I want to work with you if, somewhere in there, you suspect that these times are the ones that hone our edges, define who we are and are not, and allow us to emerge from the ashes more empowered, brighter, stronger, and more fully in ownership of our truth.

Do you long to feel at home in your own skin? Trust and freedom are core to how we as people flourish, but, for reasons large and small, we sometimes feel out of sorts. If you are unsure how to understand your way of being in the world, I am here to help. I see therapy as a joint venture in which together we uncover and explore the 'off the beaten path' places from your story in order that you can grow and flourish.

I am a trauma focused therapist who provides EMDR and psychedelic integration.
"What are you?" was a question I quickly became accustomed to growing up in the Pacific Northwest. With roots in Chamoru, Irish and Armenian heritage, there is no box for me to check. This question has been a lifelong journey in understanding who I am in the context of others, and more importantly how I define myself. I hope to work with others who are embarking on their own cultural journey and are seeking deeper answers to questions about themselves.

You are endlessly valuable, worthy of being beheld and delighted in. This treasure of infinite worth has resided within you since birth, it’s part of being human. Also included in this being human business is the pain that comes when this treasure isn’t cherished, protected, or handled with the care it needs and deserves. It’s so threatening when this happens, causing you to instinctually bury this treasure. So here you are, disconnected from your core, unable to see your value, and things don’t feel so good.

I enjoy my work as a psychotherapist even more today then I did when I started 20 years ago. There is so much power and insight that comes from a truly authentic relationship between therapist and client. You, the client, can then take what is learned in the safety of the therapeutic relationship out into the world full of Other relationships and feel equipped to navigate them in a way that is aligned with who you are. Whether it's your self as a mother, daughter, brother, or son, there is meaning to unfold in everything you do.

For many people, it can feel as though your life story is being written for you—not by you. This is especially true when living with relationship wounds, trauma, and/or substance use, where shame so often stands between us and the story we wish we could tell. Counseling is a space where you can practice holding the pen of your own narrative, re-writing your experiences as stories of strength and resilience. I can't state it better than Dr. Gabor Maté already has: "What seems non-adaptive and self-harming in the present was, at some point in our lives, an adaptation to help us endure what we had to go through then."

Good For You! You have taken the first step: You are asking for help at a time when life challenges have caused you to pause and reflect. Life can feel out of balance, leaving us with feelings of despair, anxiousness and loss. Our basic human needs are those of connecting to others. We feel pain and discomfort when we feel separated. It takes courage to look at ourselves, to find the meaning of the discomfort. This struggle can have profound lasting results for personal growth, better health, and closer relationships with our family, friends and the community at large.

Are you feeling exhausted from another day of near-constant anxiety and finding yourself thinking "what is wrong with me?" Do you spend so much time people-pleasing that you have no idea who you really are? Do you find yourself overthinking every possible detail to no end? You've been trying really hard but just keep spinning your wheels with no change in sight. What if instead, you felt in control of your life and safer being more authentically you? What if you stopped ruminating and could just enjoy yourself for once? What if you felt less self-doubt, more confidence, and a better understanding of why you are the way you are?

I am a licensed psychologist with over ten years of experience working collaboratively with individuals, couples and families as they've navigated difficult life passages. I've worked in numerous settings: an inpatient psychiatric unit, outpatient counseling center, hospice, integrated primary care, mobile therapy (patient homes & schools) as well as in transitional housing for those fleeing domestic violence. These experiences have inspired passion for the therapeutic process and that no person journey alone. That said, I believe healing is a choice to journey and that every journey is as unique as the person taking it.

What type of Bellingham mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bellingham?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
