About My Clients
My goal in working with all of my clients is to help you grow, evolve, and progress into the best possible version of you. I have worked directly with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, and an overall struggle to regulate their emotional needs. I work primarily with adults however I am open to discussing alternate demographics to help you get the help you need.
My Background and Approach
I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Washington and received my master's degree in counseling and psychology from Bastyr University. I have studied and practiced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and both Harm Reduction treatment and 12-step treatment for substance abuse. I am a person-centered therapist which means that my primary goal is to meet you where you're at and work with you passionately so you can be your own agent of change.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My personal belief is that everyone should have the right to be happy and free from all of their struggles in their life. I believe through the work that I do that it is my primary purpose to work as hard as I can to be a conduit for change in all of my clients. I have worked directly with low income clients and individuals struggling with housing, severe depression, and suicide thoughts and have witnessed many of them grow and evolve into the amazing individuals that they always wished they could be never believed they could be. My values are to remain honest, loving, kind, and tolerant of all walks of life and to remain of service to my fellow human regardless of who they were, are, or struggle to become .
