Accepting Clients

Hi! :) I'm a mental health therapist for young people aged 11-35. I love working with people with anxiety, teens, and the LGBTQ+ community.

Therapist in Seattle, WA

About My Clients

I work best with people who are looking to understand themselves on a deeper level, who are feeling anxious, scared, and stuck, and/or who have felt different from others around them. My goals are to help you feel seen and understood, and to help you identify what's causing discomfort to find a way through it.

My Background and Approach

My approach is direct, gentle, and compassionate. I am myself in session with you, not a *blank slate* kind of therapist, and I hope that helps you feel like you can be yourself with me, too. I see the best in people and want to help you see yourself that way too, while also acknowledging what can change to make life better. I am a do-er by nature, so if you want to learn skills and make some changes in your life, I will help you come up with a plan to get to your end goal. I also like to dig deeper into what makes you *you,* so if you want to understand yourself better, get analytical, and identify your own patterns (maybe some that aren't working for you), we can do that, too.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm passionate about human rights, respecting and celebrating all identities and cultures, and helping people advocate for themselves within broken systems. I have worked in various capacities to empower young people for 11+ years. I love to spend time outdoors, travel to new places, hang out with my little family, bake cookies, interior decorate, and play board games.
