I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State with a Bachelors degree in Art and Ceramics from The Evergreen State College, and a Masters degree in Applied Behavioral Science with an emphasis on Systems Counseling from Bastyr University/LIOS.
My therapy approach is strength-based, culturally sensitive, and compassionate. I believe that together, we can explore various ways of understanding situations to find what works best for you. I offer traditional talk therapy, as well as art, music, and journaling therapy. I am also trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and mindfulness practice.
Therapy is an opportunity for you to learn more about yourself and how to work through life’s struggles. My work is trauma-informed and nonjudgmental. I have experience working with survivors of abuse, neglect, assault, community violence, loss, and vicarious trauma.
Please note that I am a solo practitioner and can only offer limited after-hours or emergency care. If you need extensive after-hours care, please contact your local Community Mental Health for services. I offer sessions in person and online through a secure HIPAA approved site for Washington State residents.
My mission is to offer support, a listening ear, and a safe space to help you navigate tough times and work towards your personal goals. Each of us has skills, capacity, and resources in our lives that can benefit us, and my goal is to help you tap into these resources to promote your well-being and empowerment.
