Great to meet you!
I earned my MA from Bastyr University, where my early training focused on integrating the body and nervous system and bringing intersectional feminism into the therapy room. I launched my private practice in 2018 fueled by my passion for serving POC, queer-identified folks, women, and gender-fluid individuals. I attend ongoing clinical training on gender and sexuality, narrative therapy, and social justice. My areas of expertise include anxiety, identity work, toxic whiteness, and grief.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I use an interwoven approach to counseling, tailoring to the individual experience of each client. I believe we are all human, our identities matter, and we are doing the best with what we have. I use a primarily relational and feminist, anti-oppression approach and I am trained in working with the nervous system to heal anxiety in the body and mind. I have an informal style and I use humor in my work with clients.
What you can expect from our first session
I'm a good fit for teens and adults who are looking for a non-judgmental space to work on anxiety, stress, relationships, oppression, and life transitions. I work with my clients to increase flexibility, work toward acceptance, and identify the power of choice we have when faced with uncertainty. In our work together, my clients find new ways to manage stress and new ways to relate to the important people in their lives (including themselves!).
