Hello and welcome! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Seattle. My main focus is the treatment of anxiety, OCD, and ADHD in youth and adults. I believe that everyone has the capacity for profound change. Some things I can help you or your child with include: gaining a greater sense of meaning and purpose in life; increasing awareness of your senses and the ability to activate your body's natural relaxation response; emotion regulation; learning how to reduce anxiety, worry, stress, and rumination; boosting your focus and organization, addressing parenting concerns; and gaining a deeper connection to yourself and others.

Seeking therapy is a courageous, empowering step. Although you are strong, you shouldn't have to walk through life's hardships alone. I provide individual and couples counseling with a mindful and compassionate approach around subjects such as grief and loss, depression and anxiety, reclaiming one's self esteem, relational trauma, conflict resolution, fertility struggles, and new motherhood, to name a few. I am continually amazed by our natural ability to heal and thrive given the right kind of attention and caring presence.

Therapy can feel intimidating to step into and so I hope to meet every client where they are at, whether they have been to therapy before or not. I don't believe you need to have a huge "reason" to reach out for therapy, rather a desire for healing and wholeness in your life and relationships. As a queer therapist, I hold a unique understanding of some of the challenges LGBTQIA+ folks face as they navigate the complex and beautiful journey of living their authentic life and hope to walk alongside them in that journey.

You’re tired of being on autopilot, pretending that everything’s fine because you know it’s not. You feel like you’re sinking into quicksand with no way out. You’re overwhelmed, worried, and exhausted. You know that what you’re currently doing isn’t working, but you feel helpless and unsure of what to do differently.

I often feel that the way this world is structured forces us to compromise who we are. It becomes easy to feel lost and disconnected from ourselves. Disconnection is not a choice we made but more of a survival reaction to intense experiences. My clinical interests are complex trauma, PTSD, loneliness, and depression. I am a trauma-informed therapist and am here to walk you through the re-connect-to-yourself journey.

At one time or another, we all find ourselves stuck. We end up burdened by depression, loss, or anxiety. Our relationships become mired in conflict and disconnection. We feel the life we want is out of reach. As a therapist, my goal is to help you get unstuck and step into the life you want. I provide therapy to individuals and couples that is engaging, caring, practical, and applicable to your life and goals. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, and life transition issues. I also have training and experience supporting clients with issues related to spirituality or purpose.

Are you a woman who lives a complicated life and is going through difficult times? Do you feel pulled off-center and hijacked by the emotional storm of your feelings? Transitions, pregnancy, birth, death, anxiety, stress, and trauma happen. It’s not your fault, it’s not fair, and it happens to the strongest of us, regardless of gender, race, education, or background. At the heart of my 25 years of clinical work lies my deep passion for supporting women like you who are going through challenging times in their life’s journey.

Sometimes our emotions are incredibly difficult to listen to. They are always speaking to us, like messengers trying to relay information, but often there are blockages that keep us from trusting our emotions, or knowing how to truly listen to them. We can quickly talk ourselves out of things that somewhere deep down, we KNOW to be true. I want to help you by providing an environment where all the complexities and parts of you are allowed to show up and have a voice at the table. I will provide a safe space for you to sort through your complex, layered and sometimes confusing emotion - to find your most authentic self.

My passion lies in working with both youth and adults alike and believe that counseling offers an opportunity to reflect on the current challenges that you may be experiencing in life, and working together with you on moving forward. In particular I have a heart and passion for working with youth and young adults of color. I believe that racial identity is linked to every aspect of daily lives for people of color and often leads to ongoing symptoms of stress and anxiety. I love working with individuals of all races and ethnicities, including folks who identify as children of immigrants.

Welcome. I approach therapy from an empathic relational orientation using a feminist, diversity-informed lens. My style is warm & non-judgmental. I believe the client is the expert of their own life and value being collaborative, transparent & authentic with clients. No matter where clients go in therapy, I’m willing to go there with them, & work to deeply understand them. This process of deep understanding, I find activates clients’ innate tendencies towards insight & growth. I don’t offer advice or quick fixes, instead I see it as an honor to sit with clients in their vulnerability and help them make meaning.

I am a Washington mental health and substance use professional that works with adult individuals seeking support for their mental health and/or issues related to substance use and addiction. I believe in approaching clients from a holistic perspective to connect mind, body, and spirit by collaborating, acting as a member of their team. I hope to work with individuals to understand the potential and authenticity we all innately hold and be a supportive ally. I work from a social justice and anti-oppression framework because I believe that providing compassion and understanding is not based on linear imperialist belief systems.

I help stressed, overloaded, and desperate couples create joyful and meaningful relationships. Whether you've been together for one year or fifty, it's within your power to ensure your relationship is prepared for the ups and downs. I know you want to have pleasurable and connected sex with your partner. You want to balance work and family while living and parenting with intention and creating healthy habits. You love each other and are committed, but this is hard, and you really wish there was a manual. You feel alone, worry it will be like this forever and don't know where to start. Couples therapy can be a great next step.

You desire change but are overwhelmed and unsure where to start. You’re juggling a lot. You feel almost equal parts wound up and worn out. Feeling lost, stuck, or just going through the motions. You’re feeling like you don’t measure up to expectations placed on you and you often compare yourself to others. Some of your relationships may feel unfulfilling. Something is standing between you and you leading a more meaningful life that you’re proud of. You are not alone and together, we can unpack and unlearn in a way that is supportive to what you desire.
