I believe it takes courage and hard work to change and that most often happens when we feel safe and supported. Relationships and connection are the foundations of a healthy life, and sometimes those are hard to find. My own story has taught me the importance of transparency, vulnerability, and connection in order to heal and move forward.
As a Licensed Mental Heath Counselor my approach to counseling is relational and strength based. I utilize attachment, psychodynamic, and cognitive strategies to better understand what's currently happening and explore how it might be different.
I specialize in abuse and trauma recovery, anxiety issues, and improving communication and boundaries.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR ) and have seen how helpful EMDR can be in resolving trauma, especially when traditional talk therapy seems to plateau.
I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and adolescents and my relationship with each client is something I truly value.
I am happy to provide a free, brief phone consultation to see if we might work well together. I am also an approved supervisor for those pursuing licensing in the state of Washington.
I focus on the following areas:
Trauma and Abuse
Relationships and Communication
