Hi! :) I'm a mental health therapist for young people aged 11-35. I love working with teens, trauma survivors, and the LGBTQ+ community.
Therapist in Seattle, WA
I support people in healing from trauma and stressful experiences. I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have worked with kids, teens, and young adults who have survived traumatic events. We'll learn how to manage the brain and body's response to trauma and tell the story in a way that empowers and lifts us up. You can heal from this and begin to thrive.
I provide a neutral, confidential place for teenagers to talk to a safe adult about the challenges of being a teen and to build skills to get through those struggles. We can talk about what comes next and how to set you up for success. You can vent about the pressure, social dynamics, and drama and explore who you want to be.
It can feel like we are constantly adjusting to life's changes. Moving from childhood to adolescence, from teen to adult, and young adulthood into *real life adulting.* Beginning again in a new city or country, taking a new job, and maneuvering through a relationship with a new partner. Exploring your identity as you grow and change. These transitions can bring about a lot of emotions and uncertainty. Let's take steps to move through this.
I am trained in CBT and exposure therapy, and find it useful for clients experiencing depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, and general stress.
Storytelling is so important in many cultures and communities around the world. The way we tell our own story impacts how we see ourselves and the world. I use narrative therapy techniques to help you craft your personal story in a way that empowers you. Narrative therapy can also be helpful to see problems as external instead of part of yourself. This type of therapy can be helpful for self-esteem building, identity exploration, stress, and trauma.
I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and use a trauma-informed approach in my work.
I specialize in working with anxiety disorders, including everyday stress, OCD, adjusting to a new life challenge, phobias, anxious attachment in relationships, and more. I'm trained in CBT and ERP therapies which are scientifically proven to help.
I support all identities and aim to help you feel safe and supported while you explore how to feel most comfortable in your life, body, and relationships.
