Accepting Clients

I am a psychodynamic, relational, and experiential therapist. I treat a range of problems: mood disorders, psychosis, and other distress.

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Seattle, WA


About My Clients

Sometimes experiences or sensations in the present moment touch & awaken unresolved experiences from our past without our awareness of what happened; it is all unconscious. This can result in any number of distressing situations from anxiety, panic, & dissociation, to irritability, feelings of overwhelm or sadness. I work with clients to uncover & metabolize experiences from the past so they no longer creep into the present and lead them to defend against situations that are no longer relevant.

My Background and Approach

I use relational, somatic, psychodynamic, & compassion focused approaches to therapy. My aim is to hold a warm, inviting and safe space for every client I see. From here, the natural healing that is part of the human psyche may be uncovered, unfold and work it's magic. I seek to help clients untangle the neural networks in their mind, differentiate them & notice how they are linked, thus allowing integration to happen. When it does, people are able to be more adaptive, flexible, & creative; they have more energy, ease & resilience. When these networks are enmeshed, people experience chaos and rigidity in their way of being, which leads to suffering. My aim is for clients to take away a sense of possibility. They become attuned to parts of themselves that they didn't know before, or that had gotten lost. Clients are able to understand themselves differently, to honor their experiences, find strength within & wisdom to determine what course of action is right for them.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe there is no 'one way' to do therapy, that each individual is unique. While I do have a deep understanding of psychology & neuroscience, there is always more to learn; my study is never ending. When mental health challenges are severe, or unwavering, it can be helpful to use findings from cutting edge research, that go beyond talk therapy. In my practice I incorporate EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), DBR (Deep Brain Reorienting), IPNB (Interpersonal Neurobiology) as well as somatic practices into the standard talk therapies often found in mainstream therapy (CBT- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, narrative therapy, and psychodynamic therapy). By taking our time, slowing down to turn towards & feel all that emerges, healing happens faster. I believe in spending time not only with difficult emotions, but also with the glimmers & transformance that happens as core emotions are processed in whichever way works for you! With kindness, I hope to hear from you!
