Whether you would like to process trauma or burdens and possibly release them; grow towards less shame and more self-love; increase understanding of next steps that are most congruent and life-giving for your personal or professional life; or discuss tools to support the most effective communication and relating in your relationships; all are welcome. I draw from 15 years in psychotherapy, education and spirituality, and bring respect for all identities, histories, heritages and overall social locations including the path of immigrants and refugees.

When that gap between how you want your life to be, and how it is right now gets too big, reach out. Look for an ally to create room for you. To listen deeply. To clarify choices. Clear the way to live in alignment with your values. Find strength to navigate challenges. Maybe you seek to be more free or kind in relation to yourself and others; or to find and hold boundaries to increase safety and well being. Perhaps you would like to unburden your mind and body from past distress.

I work from a collaborative and strengths-based approach to help individuals reduce their suffering and reconnect with their values. I treat a variety of problems including addictions, anxiety/trauma, & depression. I also work with family members of loved ones with addiction and teach family members practical and empowering skills to help their addicted loved ones and themselves. I use evidence-based treatments and draw heavily from cognitive-behavioral treatments, particularly newer cognitive-behavioral therapies such as Functional Analytic Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches.

I believe that we all experience suffering and that we are not meant to go through it alone. My own suffering brought me to therapy and it was in that relationship where I was met with unconditional positive regard and felt truly seen and heard for the first time. Having this experience allowed me to begin to find self-love and compassion, both requisites for healing from whatever kind of suffering we have endured. I want to help others find their way to healing and am committed to providing a safe and caring space for them to do so.

Do life's questions take hold of you? Does life itself become questionable? You may struggle to articulate this, let alone discuss it with others. It may seem unspeakable. Yet we need companionship to uncover and address our deepest questions. They cannot be answered bluntly. They have to be lived, and that takes courage, dialogue, and time. I offer attention, patience, and trusting relation as a way to explore your questions and the concerns in which they are rooted.

Before therapy, many of my clients think: My past relationships and experiences are still really impacting me, and I want to understand why and how. I don’t feel very good about myself. I think what I’ve been through is my fault, even if I “shouldn’t” think that. I feel tense or stressed a lot of the time. My emotions make me feel overwhelmed- it sounds scary to talk about them with other people. If this sounds like you, I can help. Therapy can be a safe, non-judgmental place to process your experiences and learn skills that will help you for the rest of your life. I can support you through the process of coming to know yourself.

Are you finding your mind lives constantly in the future or stresses over the past? Are you finding yourself revisiting the same thoughts over and over? Sometimes it can feel like our brains are working against us and the more we try and fight, the more they win. Together we can explore ways to help you work through some of this difficulty while finding ways to feel joyful and fully present. My primary area of focus is working with clients on anxiety, parenting concerns, unhealthy coping skills like self-medicating and relationship issues.

We come into the world built for connection, belonging, and joy. Our traumatic experiences and the systems we live in so often remove our access to the people we are destined to be. Have your experiences led to shame, disconnection, loneliness, or hopelessness? Have they led you to consistent fear, panic, or alienation that feels intense or uncontrollable? No matter what identities you hold or how long you’ve been facing your most significant struggles, I work with folks to fully understand their experiences and co-create new possibilities from those experiences.

I utilize a range of therapy styles and techniques all based in the science of attachment, development, and the nervous system. I am passionate about supporting you (and your family) in shifting patterns of relating or communicating that may be feeling stuck, frustrating, confusing, or isolating. I don’t see any behavior or symptom as ‘bad,’ but as an expression of pain. My hope is to support you in developing a deep sense of security and wellbeing that you can carry with you through life. I hope to support you in learning skills of safe connection, emotional flexibility, and self-understanding. ​

There are many reasons that you may be seeking support: a sense of overwhelm with the multiplicity of changes that you've experienced in the recent past, a life or relational transition, grief, dissatisfaction with your body, or the load of parenting. Or it may be that you want to simply be a better version of yourself. I work with individuals looking for support in changing their lives; those who need help navigating challenges. Drawing from modalities gathered through 20 years of practice, I provide effective, intuitive, body based therapy for individuals hoping to feel better, and live more whole and healthy lives.

I work with teens and adults who are in search of relief from stress, anxiety, panic, anger, low-self-esteem, depression, and relationship issues such as codependency. In my practice, I recognize that being human is complex. Big and small traumas can hold someone back from taking care of themselves, seeing their potential, forming meaningful relationships, taking aligned risks, and living an authentic life. If you are interested in getting to the root of lifelong patterns and emotional triggers that are keeping you from living your best life, then I would love to join you on your healing journey.

Often, our past stories of trauma and heartache play out in the present and keep us from fully living the lives we desire. Therapy is a place for us to reflect on how these stories have impacted you so that you can regain agency and freedom over your life. Through understanding your past wounds more deeply, I believe we will come to see that these places of pain and trauma are the very grounds for beauty, gifting, and the rebirthing of desire in your relationships and life.

What type of Seattle 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Seattle?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
