In my work as a therapist, I am rooted in relational psychodynamic therapy, which means that I see the ongoing process of cultivating a safe, open, and collaborative relationship with you as the primary means to promote healing and personal growth.
Whatever pressing need you may have, reaching out for help is your first step. I am here to support you as you start envisioning how this path forward may look like – personal changes to make, relationship patterns to undo, new skills to learn. Your painful lessons can turn into stepping-stones. As a the great poet Rumi once put it: “Your wound is the place where the light enters you,” helping you to see yourself in a new light.

I work from a relational/interpersonal and psychodynamic point of view.
I meet with clients who have struggled with the pressures of daily living, relational struggles,depression, anxiety, communication, PTSD, trauma, sexual abuse, addiction, domestic violence and couples issues.I work from a relational/interpersonal perspective using my training in Motivational Interviewing and Life Span Integration. I believe that understanding ourselves in the context of early childhood experiences and present relationships helps grow life enhancing relationships. Counseling helps consider the way in which past painful wounds have kept you from peace and wellbeing, why the same themes and challenges arise in your present relationships and how you can develop healthy ways of communicating and living well.

*Be aware I am not currently taking any new patients due to my schedule being completely full for the foreseeable future. I believe that healing can happen through the process of empathic and supportive counseling. I work with mood issues, personality disorders, grief, substance use and much more. I utilize a culturally sensitive and holistic psychodynamic style of therapy. This approach encourages development in all areas of life (relationships, thoughts, behaviors, emotions, careers, etc.), and pays special attention to unconscious factors and cultural identity (race, religion, sexuality, gender, disability, etc).

As a psychodynamic psychotherapist, I work primarily with complex-PTSD, Spiritual/Religious Abuse, Dissociative Disorders, and Family of Origin related attachment issues.
I believe that we are harmed in relationships and we heal in relationships. I approach therapy from a deeply relational space where everything that's occurring therapeutically is happening between us. Despite what problems or challenges you're facing, I invite you to show up authentically. I believe that as we enter into your story we together will attend to the various themes and patterns of your life, to listen to what's sitting below the surface of your unconscious, and to be present to the here and now of your emotional experiences. I believe in deep emotional work rather than just behavioral interventions.

I will incorporate the relevance of your environment, family & social network to provide appropriate treatment, while utilizing elements of several therapeutic modalities including Psychodynamic , Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) & Bowen Family Systems Therapy.
I specialize in working with individuals who are experiencing relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, codependency and perfectionism. Problematic behaviors, thoughts and perceptions have their roots in past relationships or experiences that were emotionally or psychologically damaging. In our work together, I will help you to explore your family of origin, relationship history and current circumstances to overcome some of these emotional and psychological barriers.

I use psychodynamic "talk therapy" and Existential therapy with clients primarily to process negative experiences.
Sometimes personal tragedy strikes and you need to talk. Often systemic oppression and microaggressions can cause depression, anxiety and PTSD. I believe that hope is an endurant quality that gets us through the hardest parts of our life. Counseling is about restoring hope and advocacy within the context of an apathetic society. I teach self advocacy skills and boundary setting. My overall approach is compassion focused. I believe that clients know what is in their best interest and I hope to assist you in reaching your goals.

The primary modalities that inform my practice are Gestalt, Buddhist psychology, psychodynamic , transpersonal, and attachment theory.
The foundation of my therapeutic style is a continued invitation to turn your attention towards what is happening for you in the present moment as we work together. The goal of this kind of therapy is to help you experiment with novel and flexible ways of being in relationship with others and your environment. You can expect us to curiously explore the ideas, images, memories, sensations, and feelings that are arising for you as they unfold during our sessions.

I work predominantly from an interpersonal perspective, but incorporate ACT, psychodynamic , feminist multicultural, and other techniques as the needs of my clients require.
Updated 9/22/22; current openings weeknights. My clients have come to me experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, and a myriad of other presenting concerns. In therapy I strive to understand and clarify my clients' goals and help them work toward building insight around their concerns. You don't have to know exactly what your goals might be, and during our work you can always add or change goals. This is your treatment and my hope is that you take an active role in determining the direction and depth of the work that we do together. My hope is that we can end every session feeling that we have made progress toward your goals.

We will work together to identify where you have developed ineffective coping patterns, defense mechanisms and protective strategies that no longer serve you and may even serve as barriers in your life. We will work towards more fulfilling, meaningful and connected relationships.

For clients who are dealing with unhealthy, and sometimes even harmful sexual behaviors, their struggle is often enshrouded in shame and secrecy. These behaviors can affect anyone. Immediate access to pornography and the cloak of anonymity make it easy to become ensnared in unwanted behaviors. For clients who are dealing with concerns about their sexual functioning, it is often due to multiple causes that can be medical, relational, and/or psychological in nature. Often it is difficult to talk about these concerns with others around us given how private and personal these concerns are.

Deep down inside you know there's something more but you can't quite put your finger on it. You try, but you can't seem to pull yourself out of this gloom. You've been in survival mode and you’ve god-damn rocked it, fooled everyone around you into thinking you're just fine. What you really want seems so far out of your grasp and you've got no idea how to get there. Wider is the chasm between the destruction of your previous life and the glimmer of the one you really want. I know about the confusion and disappointment that you've turned on yourself, agreeing that you must be the problem, but admit it....you’re really fucking lost.

It can be scary to come out to your healthcare professionals, not knowing what kind of response you will receive. When you believe you must explain or defend your identity and culture, it can leave you feeling misunderstood or judged. This is why I have intentionally created an atmosphere where you feel safe and accepted exactly as you are. Since my own coming out, it has been my dream to provide a place of healing for the LGBTQ+ community. I have compassion for you as your counselor and understanding as a fellow queer person. I will respect the experience and expression of your gender, sexual, and romantic identities.

This is a difficult question to answer. Deep at my core, I would like to believe I can work with anyone regarding any potential concern. I do not wish to discriminate or weed out any clients in that way, it feels wrong to me. There very well may be some clients that don't feel I meet their needs and that is certainly okay with me. I do not bring a lot of structure, guidance, or advice to my counseling and that is not always what some clients need or believe that they need. My ideal client is someone looking to change and grow, someone that wants to be the best version of themselves, not just fix a problem.

The parenthood journey has its inherent rewards, but the struggles are REAL. Sometimes the weight of these struggles becomes too much, even crushing. The stress takes away from the moments you want more than anything to enjoy. The responsibilities are endless. It is common to feel alone, particularly in times of need. But know you are not alone! Whether you are trying to conceive, are pregnant, a new parent or an experienced one, help is available.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Spokane, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
