Wherever you are in your therapeutic journey, my first goal is to offer a warm, empathetic space where you can be comfortable exploring the questions that brought you here. I welcome individuals, couples, kids, teens, and families and I am a long-practicing ally to BIPOC and LGTBQIA+ communities.
My first career as an art and humanities teacher sparked a desire to work more one-on-one with people and the challenges they face throughout life. This desire led me to a master’s degree and a second career as a therapist. My therapeutic methods derive from Gottman Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples and individuals, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems theory, and art therapy.
Outside of the office, I enjoy live music, painting, paddleboarding, and traveling the world including exploring the many natural and cultural gems of the PNW. In addition, I find true joy in hugging an animal and reminding them that they are “good.”
