My therapeutic approach is based on building a foundation of trust and meeting people where they are without judgment. I work from an attachment model, and how we develop a sense of belonging within our family, friendships, and community. I incorporate a variety of perspectives including Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Attachment, CBT, and Emotionally Focused.
Your story is unique to you and in therapy my hope is that you are better able to understand how life experiences, family patterns, and society influence how you may see the world. With this understanding you then have the choice to change behaviors, create new meaning, and move toward a healthier level of functioning.
I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Fine Art with an emphasis in Ceramics, and a Minor in Holistic Health from San Francisco State University. This is where I was introduced to Art Therapy, and I began to research Masters Programs. In 2012 I graduated from Antioch University Seattle with a Masters of Arts in Child, Couples, and Family Therapy with Art Therapy. Currently I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a state certified Mental Health Professional, and a state certified Clinical Supervisor.
As both an individual and family therapist, I use a compassionate and strength-focused approach to help one better understand themselves, learn coping strategies, and practice healthier communication. In my experience working with children, teens, young adults, and families I have found that changes and transitions in our lives can provide opportunities for growth and insight. My approach is tailored to each client's need- whether you have a specific goal or are simply in need of a supportive space. Everyone has inherent strength that can be drawn upon.
I look forward to working with you.
