We are living in some challenging times. If you’re struggling, that means you’re human. Know that asking for help is a strength. My therapy is collaborative in nature. I treat a range of difficulties using a variety of techniques. I work from an attachment perspective that is emotionally focused . I believe therapy involves the presence of your entire being (mind/body/spirit). Ultimately, I believe human connection is one of the most important healing tools. Thus, I create a safe therapeutic environment where growth and discovery can flourish. I bring my full self to my work – my optimism, my directness, my persistence, my humor.

I use a mixture of various different therapeutic models depending on client need, however I am most rooted in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I believe relationships play a critical role in the way we operate throughout our daily lives. We look to our partner(s) for support, validation, encouragement, and empathy. The security in knowing our needs can and will be met foster a bond and attachment that is nurtured and secure. When couples can concede to such emotional engagements, secure bonding can evolve thus, establishing a bond that contributes to overall well-being and quality of life.

Does life feel out of control? The winds of depression, anxiety, relationship distress, emotional and physical infidelity, grief, hopelessness and/or loneliness can make us feel like we don’t have any control over our lives. We cannot direct these winds, but I can help you learn how to adjust your sails. These adjustments will lead you to finding a sense of purpose and direction in your life. Recognizing your value and strength will empower you to be able to face whatever storms might rage. Change is facilitated by understanding our emotions and how they affect not only us, but our relationships as well.

Whether a major life event that has thrown you off track, or over time you have realized that you are not where you want to be in life, therapy can help. It is common to find yourself feeling lost, unhappy, overwhelmed, or disconnected at various times in your life. Therapy can provide you with insight to find new ways of dealing with things that bring about positive changes, quicker than you realize may be possible.

Your life is your greatest art piece, and you do not need to wait for everything to be perfect before sculpting it into something you love. Perhaps you are grieving. Perhaps you are a helper who is burnt out, so emotionally drained by the end that there is no room to spare for enjoyment. A perfectionist who is tired of feeling constantly tense and unable to relax. A person who is feeling stuck and frustrated, often left wondering where the magic has gone. A person exploring identity. A couple struggling with intimacy and vulnerability. If any of this resonates, working with me may be for you.

I support families, adults and elders in navigating difficult times more gracefully. As we rush through our busy lives, we can feel lost and disconnected from our best selves. We can even become so immersed in our negative culture that we feel a deep sense of hopelessness. We can forget that we are smart, strong, tenacious and resilient. I can help you bring a greater sense of purpose and hope into your life.

I'm passionate about supporting people in finding greater connection with themselves, their world, and being present in their daily lives. We are in trying times. In counseling you can explore and have witness for whatever difficulties or questions you're living with. Frequent themes include anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, fostering fulfilling relationships, guilt and shame, and questions of identity and self-expression, among others. My work is informed by how gender, race, disability, sexuality, culture, colonization, immigration, language, class, spirituality, and difficult past experiences can impact us.

Welcome! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor practicing in the beautiful city of Olympia, Washington. I specialize in individual and relationship counseling with adults. I address areas of self-esteem; depression/sadness; stress/anxiety; PTSD; grief/loss (including the loss of a pet); and life transitions; as well as nurturing personal and spiritual growth. I think belief systems are the stories we tell ourselves to define our personal sense of reality. Each of us has a belief system that creates patterns of behavior--which can be positive or negative. My therapy approach is based in principles from:

I serve clients from a plethora of diverse backgrounds and situations; I enjoy learning about cultures, traditions, and customs! Our differences are our natural strengths; these differences don't separate us, they bring us closer together! With this perspective I enjoy working with clients that are looking, and ready, to embrace the challenges they are experiencing. Clients often encounter multiple obstacles that intersect with their past, present, and future selves. My goal is to deliver the appropriate treatment that is needed for clients to experience optimal relief.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
