My therapeutic approach is born of positive regard: I see every client as complex and fully capable of improving their mental health, if that is their goal. Like my colleagues, I truly believe that my clients are the experts of their lives, and that the quality of the therapeutic relationship often defines therapeutic outcomes. As such, I place a strong emphasis on creating a safe space to explore every aspect of the internal and external world, free from judgement and criticism.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Psychology from Antioch University Seattle, where I am currently completing my Master of Arts in Couple and Family Therapy. As a student therapist, I work closely with both my supervisor here at TCFS, as well as my school supervisor, in order to ensure that I am providing the most effective and ethical mental health care.
As a family therapist, I have been trained to consider how systemic factors (such as home, school, work, socio-economic status, racism, etc.) can contribute to one’s overall life, as well as mental well-being. As both an individual and family therapist, I work from a strengths-based perspective, through modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. When working with families, I utilize both Structural Therapy and Strategic Therapy, and with couples, I prefer Emotionally Focused Therapy in conjunction with the Gottman Method.
I am excited to be part of your mental health journey, and look forward to working with you.
