I believe humans are very resilient and have an astonishing capacity to deal with unexpected challenges, reclaim their lives from past/present adverse experiences, and live their lives authentically. I am passionate about working with individuals who seek to build self-awareness and have meaningful relationships as well as those who are facing various challenges in their daily lives and/or have endured traumatic experiences. I work closely with my clients to set collaborative treatment goals and identify appropriate steps to accomplish them.
I graduated from Seattle University with a Master’s in Community Counseling and have been providing services since 2015. I utilize various therapy approaches including Existential-Integrative Psychotherapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), CETA (Common Elements Therapy Approach), MI (Motivational Interviewing), and Narrative Therapy depending on the presenting issue(s) and individual’s needs. I have honed my clinical skills through working in a complex clinical situation with people of richly diverse age, race, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, and socioeconomic background. I strongly believe open communication and ongoing feedback is a crucial part of therapy. It is important to me that individuals who consult with me get what they came to therapy for and therefore, I encourage open and honest communication.
If your life is being impacted by past events, unhelpful beliefs about yourself/others/or life in general or obstructive patterns, there is help. I can assist you in exploring these patterns and events and to change them.
I can offer help with:
- Anxiety (social, general, phobias)
- Trauma (including relational trauma)
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
