About My Clients
Whether you’re looking to heal wounds, understand your role in the world, or develop practices to support a lifetime of wellbeing, I offer a non-judgemental space to explore what it means to be you in a complex world. We will not only examine the broader systems and dynamics that have informed your life story, but work together to explore your sense of self, obtain clarity about how you got here, and develop a pathway to healing and acceptance together.
My Background and Approach
My therapeutic space is full of warmth and is client-led. I strongly believe in transparency, accountability, and direct, empathic communication. I strive for therapy to be de-mystified and trauma-informed. I come to therapeutic work after spending several years as an advocate for survivors of intimate partner violence. I attended Bastyr University for my Master's in Counseling Psychology and then worked two years as a therapist at a local community health organization. I firmly believe in access to care for all. In addition to traditional talk therapy with a narrative, relational focus, I offer EMDR to process trauma and attachment wounds. Drawing from research on neuroscience and mindfulness, I will help you increase attunement with your body and its unique safety signals using parts-work and somatics.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am queer and love working with the queer/LGBTQ+ community. I operate from an anti-racist, anti-oppression, intersectional-feminist framework. My free time is spent outdoors with my partner and new puppy, Oatmeal, whom I hope can be trained to be a therapy assistant someday. I also have a tendency to dive deep into a variety of books, only to emerge for food and water. :)
