EXPERIENCE & EDUCATION
I believe that healing begins with being heard. The therapeutic relationship allows me to witness and attune to your experiences with acceptance and positive regard. Together in practice, we can foster internal exploration that leads to supported change.
My therapeutic approach is guided by a feminist, person-in-the-environment perspective. Real wellness is grounded by insight to one's personal story, and how the language, habits, and our personal reactions influence our well-being and internal state. I offer brief-solution focused psychotherapy and behavioral intervention to clients. I can help you to refine skills that bolster mental resilience and create ease and mindful living. I keep a small practice in order to concentrate my attention on unique treatment planning specific to client needs and style. I draw on strengths-based therapy modalities that include cognitive behavioral therapy practices to encourage measurable success on collaboratively chosen treatment goals.
My therapeutic style is relaxed, present, and adaptable. Through greater self-insight and self-compassion, we can revise meaning and move past ruts previously attributed to our experiences and self-concept. Together, we can work with evidenced-based treatments that help you live a rich and meaningful life. There is a more balanced and authentic narrative waiting for you. I work primarily with individuals, both adults and adolescents. I collaborate with folks of all gender expressions and identities. I believe that black lives matter. My practice acknowledges with gratitude, the privilege of inhabiting triable land of the Samish and Duwamish people.
I am a LICSW in the state of Washington. I earned a Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Washington in 2014 and have been practicing as a masters clinician in healthcare specializing in trauma intervention and therapy settings since that time. I am currently a practitioner in Care Management at Harborview Medical Center. I offer specialty brief intervention psychotherapy services at Eastside Insight. I look forward to hearing your story.
I am a fully licensed psychotherapist and have received professional training, specialization, certification, and supervision/consultation in the following EBPs (Evidence-Based Practices):
CBT, DBT, ACT, CAMS, CPT.
If you are looking to see if services are right for you, the best way to contact me is to book a free 15-min consultation as I am typically in session. Please go to "Getting Started" and then "Scheduling" to access this feature. If you are already a client and need to reach me, you can send me a message through the secure messaging feature via the patient portal below.
