About My Clients

I have training, experience and a special interest in working with clients who have experienced difficult childhoods, childhood abuse and/or neglect or have had traumatic experiences. I am inspired by clients' resilience to survive, and want to work in collaboration to move from survival to thriving. I specialize in treating anxiety disorders, perfectionism, recovery from narcissistic abuse and family of origin healing. I've seen healing, and know it is possible.

My Background and Approach

I became a psychotherapist because I believe each individual has the power to create meaningful and lasting change in their own life. Together we will work to identify patterns and behaviors that may be or may not be helpful. I use a relational style with a focus on attachment. In plain English this means that I believe that our early first relationships and life experiences have lasting impacts on us throughout our life span. Through learning and practicing new ways of relating to ourselves and others we can alter how these experiences effect us. Because I don’t believe that one type of therapy fits all, I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I received my Masters in Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Washington.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we are all worthy of health and wellness. I believe that we all have struggles and problems, but they are not who we are. I know that just as there is hurt and heartache that occurs within relationship, so is repair and healing. Our personal relationships have never been under more pressure than now. In these difficult and uncertain times it can be helpful to have support and a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings without judgement. I am LGBTQ+ and BIPOC allied. I have and continue to work on interrogating my whiteness and practice anti-racism. I am active in suicide prevention work outside of my practice, and have volunteered at Childrens Hospital, King County Crisis Line and Youthcare. Outside of work you'll find me with my nose in a book. I enjoy long walks, swimming and hiking. I grew up here in the Pacific Northwest and I never tire of the natural beauty that surrounds us.

  • Atheism
