I specialize in working with folks struggling with stress, anxiety, relationship conflict, trauma, PTSD, depression, and more. We're living in tough times right now and we could all use more support. I will be your guide through the process of personal growth, and together we will do the work to make things better. Scroll down to see the treatment modalities that I use to do so.
I work with adults who want to make their lives better. I know life doesn't have to be this hard because clients tell me all the time that therapy helped it get better. Self-work and personal growth are the best investments you can make, and I'm excited that you're thinking about it.
If you need immediate support and/or feel suicidal please call the 24 hour King County crisis line at 206-461-3222 or 866-427-4747. They are fantastic and highly recommended. You can also text the crisis line by texting "HOME"to 741741 and someone who is trained to help will respond 24/7.
One on one telehealth appointments to deeply understand what is happening in your life, and to figure out what we need to adjust to make things better.
EMDR is highly effective for treating trauma and related disorders. This technique cuts to the emotional core of issues and leads to significant healing.
IFS is a non-pathologizing, hopeful framework within which to practice psychotherapy. It focuses on making friends with and healing hidden parts of ourselves, and is highly effective.
Human beings require social support. We're living in strange times rife with separation. The connection therapy brings is healing by its very nature. Come see that you're not alone in whatever it is that you're struggling with.
I've always been fascinated with the mind. When I helped my best friend survive a mental health crisis at age 19 I decided to find out what had gone wrong. I received an undergraduate degree in neuroscience then went to work in the clinical mental health field.
I decided to return to school for a master's degree only after I experienced my own trauma. I healed by working with several skilled therapists and undergoing EMDR. This showed me the importance of good counseling, and I got to experience how amazing emotional freedom and recovery can be.
Being a therapist is incredibly meaningful to me. When I get to know someone on a deep level I have an ability to understand what they are going through and where they are getting stuck. I've dedicated the past many years of my life to learning how to create change and help people move towards the lives they want to live.
