My background involves work with suicide, trauma, depression, anxiety, and the LGBTQ population.
*TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE* Seeking help is not easy! But you've already taken the first step right here. My passion is to help individuals process the things that are causing them pain, distress, sadness, and/or anxiety. To help you battle those feelings of being stuck, lost or empty. To address the negative thoughts/feelings that are not allowing you to live the life you want and deserve. To help you find or reconnect with the things in life that bring you true happiness. You don't have to do it alone! Some of us just need a little extra help; someone to talk to, someone to vent to, someone that listens without judgement.

Personally, I identify as queer , trans , white and as a survivor.
My clients seek a therapist who is anti-racist, body-positive, kink and identity-affirming. I specialize in working with survivors of childhood abuse, folks with complex trauma, and queer & trans folks. Often the work is around self-awareness, life patterns, identity development, stress responses, self-image, trauma release and around trans identity. I work primarily within the IFS model of therapy, incorporating attachment, psychodynamic and DBT therapies where approproate. I approach all of the work I do with an anti-pathologizing, harm-reduction and gate-opening lens. I offer Telehealth only, and I do not take insurance.

Always feeling inadequate from your drive to be perfect? Perfectionism comes with feeling uneasy when making mistakes, high expectations, self-criticism, and good enough is unacceptable. Thinking that being perfect will lead to a happier life usually lends to finding an unfulfilled life. Growth transpires when you let go of holding yourself to the unattainable standards. I specialize in helping clients starting at age 8 to adult struggling with perfectionism, anxiety, Autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, spirituality development, behavioral issues, LGBTQIA support, and relationship issues.

I provide counseling for couples who are dating, premarital, married, gay , lesbian and straight.
I am currently closed to new clients. Please see abwcs.com as several of my colleagues have openings. I provide telehealth and in-person counseling services. I can provide counseling to any Washington or Idaho State residents. Since 1994, I've helped clients work through trauma, learn about codependency and healthy boundaries, address anxiety, navigate challenging transitions, and improve communication in their relationships. Other clinicians would be better suited to help address chronic depression. I support and challenge clients to take needed action in order to improve the quality of their lives and relationships.

I have experience providing LGBTQ -affirming services, as well as working with survivors of sexual assault, abuse, medical trauma, and spiritual trauma.
Experiencing trauma, loss, or upheaval is destabilizing and isolating. It can erode the relationships we value the most while making us call into question our sense of identity. Even if we avoid consciously thinking about it, the imprint of our past can wreak havoc on our physical health, our nervous system, and our present experience. The healing process asks us tune into our intuition and our bodies so that we can notice which parts of ourselves most need our attention and care. I can offer tools and support for those seeking to regain a sense of safety and connection with themselves, others, and the world around them.

I also have extensive work with the LGBTQIA + community, and am affirming for anyone who works with me.
Hi, I am so glad you are here. It goes without saying, but it is clear in your search for a therapist that something in your life is just not working. When life stressors or trauma happens, it can feel like the whole world is falling apart. Even the act of asking for help can be overwhelming, just another task added to a plate that is already over-full. I trust that you are the expert in your story, and you know what you need in order to help move on from the stuck places in your life. I want to partner with you to find new ways out of those places, and give you the ability to face challenges with renewed hope and a fresh outlook.

Also note that I prioritize referrals for the BIPOC, Immigrant, and LGBTQIA + communities.
I currently have openings for 2-3 clients who are interested in weekly therapy, I am not accepting new clients who are looking for biweekly or monthly options at this time. The guiding values of my practice are authenticity, intention, and connection and I am likely a good fit for you if you are seeking more of these in your life. I believe that many of the people I work with seek therapy to discover what is missing and misaligned in the way they show up in their lives and our work together can assist you in that process.

I’m a queer woman with deep roots in the LGBT + and HAES communities.
I strive to provide an open and inclusive space for folks to explore who they are and any challenges within their world. This exploration can be difficult, which is why I hope having a support to guide you in this process will create a sense of safety and foster growth. Together we can work on things like coping skills, exploring trauma, interpersonal conflict, radical self-acceptance and more.
