About My Clients

I work with people experiencing transitions, those recovering from difficult childhoods, those struggling with current relationships and issues of attachment. I work often with people struggling with anxiety and life stress, emotional instability. I enjoy my work with women confronting infertility, coping with pregnancy or postpartum anxiety and depression. I have experience treating trauma and working with people in domestic violence situations. I see primarily adults and some teens.

My Background and Approach

I have a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I'm a Clinical Mental Health Counselor. I have been working in private practice since 2010. In my early work in social services, I worked with women and children in a domestic violence shelter, an outpatient mental health hospital, a college counseling center in Massachusetts and later two community mental health clinics in Washington state. I have an active direct counseling style which combines genuine empathic listening with therapeutic challenges and splashes of humor. She combines insight oriented therapy with more pragmatic skills training (self-care skills, relaxation training, conflict-resolution and communication skills, etc). Depending on the individual’s needs, she incorporates a variety of evidence-based practices including Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My training in graduate school was specialized in holistic health. Therefore, I believe in looking at the whole person: body, mind and spirit. Growing up in Seattle, I had a lot of exposure to alternative medicine, naturopathic health, acupuncture, homeopathy, massage therapy. I have practiced yoga since 1998 and find the mind/body connection is an important one. Wherever possible, I encourage my clients to seek complementary body therapies that might augment the psychological work we do together.
