I work with adult individuals around issues of anxiety, depression, racial identity, social justice, childhood sexual abuse, trauma, and relationships. People of all genders, sexualities, races, religions, and abilities are welcome.
My Background and Approach
I provide telehealth services to adult individuals residing in Washington State. I graduated from Seattle University in 2017 with a Master of Arts in Psychology and have been working in the field of mental health for 11 years. I primarily utilize IFS (Internal Family Systems) but often incorporate EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and mindfulness-based approaches. My own long time practice of Vipassana meditation also influences my work.
My previous work experience includes volunteering as a women's advocate at a confidential emergency shelter for women and their children fleeing domestic violence. I also worked for 5 years as a mental health specialist at an inpatient psychiatric hospital for involuntarily committed adults experiencing mental health crises. Prior to private practice, I provided therapy and case management services at a community mental health agency serving a diverse population of unhoused adults suffering from severe and complex trauma.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I approach therapy from the perspective that life experiences and what they mean to us influence how we navigate our struggles, our lives, our relationships, and the world. I am committed to practicing with compassion, acceptance and non-judgment and aim to help clients shift from going through life in a habitual way to living in a more intentional and meaningful way.
