welcome to my practice.
I'm glad you are here.
Everyone has a story that wants and needs to be heard. Sometimes we can lose touch with our inner
voice, leaving us feeling stuck and uncertain, unable to trust ourselves. Old ways we learned to survive
may no longer help us live our best lives. I believe that our suffering is often related to separation, and
healing depends on creating a new connection with self, body, and community. I aim to empower
my clients to guide their own growth process, as they are the experts in their own lives.
Being human is complicated. Folks who work with me seek to better understand themselves, their
relationships, and their life purpose. I love working with clients who are crossing a threshold in their lives,
such as a change in relationship or home, a career shift, preparing for college, being touched by birth or death,
exploring a new identity, or opening to an identity that has been there all along. Common themes in my
work include stress, anxiety, perfectionism, relationship concerns, gender identity, body image, depression,
parenting children and teens, being a child of parents, and healing from trauma and oppression.
I use a holistic, collaborative, and feminist approach to therapy.
I focus heavily on the strengths and resilience of my clients to help us find a way forward.
I provide weekly counseling for teens and adults in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.
