About My Clients

My experience with clients includes depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, relationship and attachment issues, relational trauma, intimacy issues, grief and loss, and transitional issues. Using DBT skills and an exploration of past experiences, we'll work through experiences of anxiety and shame that inhibit your self-expression and self-empowerment in the world and your relationships.

My Background and Approach

Relationships are sometimes messy, and navigating them can make us anxious and confused. Many experiences contribute to that anxiety, and working through those experiences by yourself can be overwhelming. I was trained in Relational Psychodynamic Therapy, a kind of therapy that emphasizes the relationships you have with others as well as yourself. I believe as we build a strong relationship, therapy becomes an open, organic, and collaborative playfield or lab for self-transformation and fuller, healthier self-expression. I supplement my style with skills from dialectical behavioral therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I incorporate a postcolonial and liberation ideas into my practice, highlighting where internalized oppression may contribute to your mental health or the inner dialogues that inhibit your ability to find fulfillment. I regularly work to educate myself through continuing education, such as workshops and classes, to better support LGBTQIA+ as well as Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color. I am an active and out member of the LGBTQ community. I have frequently marched and protested with the BLM movement, most recently during the George Floyd protests in downtown Seattle and by the East Precinct.
