I work with clients ages 13 and older, teens and adults undergoing life changes, anxiety/depression, identity issues, and trauma. As a therapist, I primarily draw from Systems theory, the perspective that family, friends, work, community, culture, and society all intersect and effect everyone. These factors affect the way that we see the world, and how we create our own individual narratives. However, these narratives can become stuck and difficult to adapt to our current environment and can lead to emotional and cognitive distress.
I ascribe to the neurobiological research that provides foundational understanding of the brain and how it is impacted, and thus impacts the individual or system. I use Solution-Focused Narrative Therapy as my clinical lens as it empowers clients to find their preferred story, and how to turn that narrative into reality using solution focused directives and discourse. I know that before you enter my office, you’ve already managed to overcome a lot and therefore I know you possess some answers, together we will help you find them. meet each individual and family where they are at, and will work collaboratively with you to reach your goals.
I received my Bachelor's Degree through the University of Washington in 2012 in Psychology with a focus in child development and personality. I completed a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Antioch University in Seattle in 2016. I am adjunct faculty at Antioch University and am currently a doctoral student seeking my Ph.D in Counseling Education and Supervision. In my free time I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy photography, painting and snuggling with my cat.
