My therapeutic approach is compassionate, down-to-earth, relational, playful, trauma-informed, and depth-focused. I believe in the inherent goodness within all people and focus on one's strengths and abilities in order to support growth and resilience. I use an integrative approach that addresses client concerns through a larger context, such as family of origin structure, greater societal norms (patriarchy), structural racism, and others.
I have been working with youth, adults, and families in community mental health since 2019. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMFTA) in Washington State and I hold a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Bastyr University. I am a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) and Washington Mental Health Care Association (WMHCA).
