I offer a client-centered, non-judgmental approach and use skills drawn from motivational interviewing, CBT and DBT to set goals, confront unhealthy coping mechanisms and improve how you communicate and assert boundaries.
My experience is heavily rooted in Forensic Mental Health. I've spent a total of 8 years working between the court and jail. The last 5 years were spent in King County Correctional Facility as a Psychiatric Evaluation Specialist. I was the primary clinician responsible for the treatment of the incarcerated women on the psych unit. I did a significant amount of work with our suicidal unit and was responsible for conducting the 4 hour suicide trainings assigned to all new staff and officers in the jail. I value the complexity of the human experience and strive to provide a safe non judgmental space for clients to heal.

I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), which is a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) designed to help clients master skillful living and build a life they believe is worth living.
I work well with clients who are struggling to thrive in everyday life, who need a path forward and feel stuck. If you've been experiencing depression, anxiety, increased anger, irritability, frustrations with relationships, a depleted sense of self, or a whole host of problems, then we might be a great fit. Some folks I work with don't want to live anymore or experience strong urges to harm themselves. When working with folks who experience any of these symptoms, my goal is to help you identify and work toward living a life you find joyful and meaningful.

I am experienced in providing evidence-based approaches, including CBT, DBT, MI and parent-child coaching with Incredible Years (IY).
I am continually inspired by the depth and breadth of the human experience. With a passion for learning about individuals, groups, and systems across varied backgrounds, I seek to support clients in being heard, understood, and empowered. My bachelor's degree in language studies and master's degree in social work allow me to carefully consider the socio-emotional experience of an individual, while accounting for the unique ways in which we express, perceive, and develop meaning. I offer tools and resources for practicing coping strategies outside of sessions, based on client interest. I am open to new and eclectic approaches.

By using evidence-based modalities including CBT, DBT, EMDR and Gottman Method, clients feel a sense of empowerment.
I find people are far more capable and resilient than they realize. My approach to therapy is collaborative, eclectic and person-centered. Whether the challenge stems from anxiety, depression, trauma or conflict within your relationship, skills can be learned to navigate your life circumstance. Relationships make up the core of who we are as human beings and effort is needed to learn skills to communicate, have healthier conflict resolution or restructure a relationship to fit our needs (with others and self).

I utilize a strengths-based approach while pulling from CBT, DBT, and ACT.
Many of our wounds may have been formed in the absence of a witness or lack of connection. You may be struggling with an eating disorder, body image concerns, low self-worth, anxiety, or relationship challenges. Often, these wounds are formed in the absence of validation and support, or a lack of connection. Because wounds are often started in relationships, it makes sense for healing to happen in a relational way. I believe in the transformational and impactful work that happens within relationships both in and outside of the therapy space.

I have experience working with various evidence-based therapies: ACT, attachment theory, RO-DBT, MBCT, trauma-informed, IFS, Narrative, and CBT.
When working with clients, I aim to honor stories, identities, and experiences and create a collaborative space where you can show up authentically as yourself. A foundational part of the therapeutic process is having curiosity about yourself, and openness to discover parts of yourself that you may not have known were there. To me, this also represents the expansion of what connection means. Relationships and connections drive so much of our development over our lifetime. However, the relationship we often work on the least is the one with ourselves. Yet, this just might be the most important one.

Current openings! I'm queer and I specialize in supporting LGBTQ+ and nonmonogamous adults around trauma, family of origin issues, gender affirming care, and anxiety, including OCD. Before therapy, my clients think: Being in my head is stressful- there are things I'm afraid to talk about, or even think about. My past is still affecting me, and setting boundaries is really challenging. Sometimes I have nightmares or flashbacks of things I've been through. If that sounds like you, I can help.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT) Therapists

Who is DBT for?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is designed for people who experience extreme emotional suffering because they lack the skills of emotion regulation and distress tolerance. The basic affliction can underlie a wide range of conditions, from borderline and other personality disorders to PTSD and treatment-resistant anxiety and depression. The therapy is helpful to those whose emotional reactivity is so intense it is disruptive to everyday functioning and leads to frequent crises.

Why do people need DBT?

The ability to regulate emotions is a core psychological skill that enables people to function in life and pay attention to the world outside themselves; it is consistently associated with well-being. DBT is designed to help people learn how to manage and regulate their emotions. Originally developed to treat people with borderline personality disorder whose extreme emotional suffering led to self-harming behavior and suicide attempts, the therapy is now applied to other conditions involving emotion dysregulation, particularly when other treatments have failed.

What happens in DBT?

Individuals meet weekly with their therapist to discuss their experiences relating to moods, behavior, and skills. Using checklists they maintain, they review emotional experiences and positive practices they engage in. The diaries help individuals discern what led up to a specific problem encountered, this is followed by discussion of the consequences of their actions. In addition, individuals may meet in class-like small groups to learn skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance.

How long does DBT last?

Because it is intended to establish long-lasting behavioral change among those with persistent problems, DBT is designed to last six months to a year. DBT includes both weekly sessions of individual therapy and weekly skills-training sessions conducted in small groups. Studies of DBT have documented improvement within a year of treatment, particularly in controlling self-harmful behavior; nevertheless, individuals may require therapy for several years.
