About My Clients

On the surface, you have everything under control - yet you carry an iceberg's worth of emotion underneath. It's difficult to give space to your feelings and thoughts, or to communicate them to others. You're stuck in unhelpful patterns, but change feels threatening. Your life is filled with "shoulds," rules, and high expectations. You feel lonely, and you long to be seen. I can help you understand yourself and your experiences, get out of your comfort zone, and tap into joy.

My Background and Approach

I have a Master's degree in Community Counseling from Seattle University and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington. I have specific training in Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), but I like to pepper in concepts and skills from a wide variety of clinical styles, such as RO-DBT. As a former English major, I'm fond of vivid imagery and metaphor, and any kind of meaning-making is interesting to me. I also have experience in sex education and I am a sex- and body-positive therapist. First and foremost, I am a client-centered therapist; as such, I draw on these and other modalities flexibly, in order to best serve your individual needs. I will always endeavor to hold compassionate, non-judgmental space for you, while simultaneously challenging you to grow into the person you want to be, and the life you want to live.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we are all capable of change, and that we each deserve compassion, acceptance, rest, and even joy. I believe that even difficult emotions are worthy of attention and respect. Many of our problems are related to the experiences that have shaped us, yet we have made it through - and still have the power to create lives that are rich with meaning and value, whatever our context. I believe that some of my identities afford me certain privileges, of which I strive to stay aware. I regard myself as a perpetual student, always learning. I am invested in promoting sex positivity and body acceptance, and practicing anti-racist therapy, which I consider to be lifelong processes rather than goals I can check off.
