Hello! I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington state since 2010 and practicing therapy for over 15 years counseling individuals, couples, and families through a wide range of challenges including: anxiety, depression, life transitions, addictions, relational conflict and trauma, and more.
There is no "one size fits all" structure of therapy. As a result, I treat everyone uniquely to tailor their experience to their needs. I'm equally comfortable and confident helping clients figure out 'where to start' as I am following the client's lead if they already have a sense of what they need. While I have beliefs or 'pillars' that guide my work, I see them as somewhat malleable to the needs of each client. I integrate aspects of narrative therapy, solution-focussed therapy, addiction recovery therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, differentiation theory, and existential therapy into my work. I believe that I and we can learn to have peace that's not dependent upon circumstances or outcomes.
It would be an honor to meet you. If you're ready, I'm here to partner with you in your journey to be your best you!
