About Me


I became a therapist because I am in awe of our human capacity for growth and transformation. Sometimes it is difficult to imagine our lives looking differently. While emotional distress can have a profound effect on our bodies and our minds, I know from my own personal experience as well as what I have witnessed with my clients, that feeling better is possible. I believe each of us is whole and has the inherent ability to cope with life’s struggles, no matter how much pain we may be experiencing. I bring a compassionate and collaborative approach, inviting you to tap into your inner wisdom, to explore your thoughts and feelings, and to discover new ways of being. Our diverse backgrounds inform who we are, and I will work with you to make changes in your life while honoring your culture and your values.


I assist clients with a wide range of issues and symptoms, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, grief, life transitions, and identity exploration. I have extensive experience working with survivors of domestic violence or controlling partners, sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, and other childhood traumas. My therapeutic orientation is eclectic, drawing from Attachment Psychology, Neuropsychology, Existential Psychology, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and other mindfulness-based approaches. I am also trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD.  


When I am not at work I enjoy doing yoga, watching stand-up comedy, and making homemade ice cream. Happiness for me is hanging out with sea lions in a kayak on Alki, while gawking at our cityscape.
