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, which is also where I completed my Master of Arts in Couple and Family Therapy. I am currently licensed as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, working towards full licensure under the supervision of Toni Evans, MA LMFT.
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, especially their mental well-being.
As both an individual and family therapist, I work from a strengths-based perspective, utilizing modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
For me, children's therapy = family therapy, so if your child is under the age of 13, every family member will be asked to participate in therapy sessions as recommended, and I prefer only to work with children whose parents are actively involved in the therapeutic process, as children are unable to create change on their own.
When working with families, I utilize both Structural and Strategic Therapy through a developmental lens. With couples, I prefer Emotionally Focused Therapy in conjunction with the Gottman Method.
Over all else, I am a collaborative therapist, so as my client, you will always have autonomy in our relationship.
I am excited to be part of your mental health journey, and look forward to working with you.
