I believe the therapy space is a sacred space, where you are supported, listened to, and seen. Life is so complex, and it is not always obvious or intuitive how to navigate the challenges we face or how to cope with painful experiences — past or present. So often too, the challenges we face or the pain we experience can feel incredibly isolating. We are not meant to be alone with our pain or life’s challenges. No matter if you are navigating the pain of a past experience or dealing with something that is challenging in the present moment, it is possible to move through these difficult times and to heal.
The most important aspect of successful therapy, more than orientation or modalities used, is the relationship between client and therapist. Like so many relationships in life, you often know right away if it is a good fit or not. If you’re interested in having an initial consultation, please contact me.

The most important factor in therapy being successful is the resonance and connection you feel with your therapist.

My therapeutic orientation includes Relationally Focused Psychodynamic Therapy, Narrative-Focused Trauma Therapy, EMDR, Lifespan Integration, mindfulness, CBT, IFS, and play therapy for children.

I work with adults and children who are experiencing relationship difficulties, life transitions, grief and loss, anxiety and depression, LGBTQIA+, as well as survivors of childhood abuse, sexual abuse, and trauma.

Therapy sessions can be over telehealth or in person at my office in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Please note that I see children for in-person therapy sessions only (I feel that telehealth sessions can be very difficult for young children). I prefer to see teens in person, but depending on the teen, telehealth sessions are also possible.

I am a graduate of the Seattle School’s Counseling Psychology Program, with a Concentration in Trauma and Abuse. Although I don’t align with a specific religious denomination, I am a deeply spiritual person and feel guided by the philosophical teachings of Jesus, the Buddha, and Yoga philosophy. I’ve taught yoga for 21 years and spent six years in India living, working, and studying. I am a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner and Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as served as a labor and birth doula since 2003. I am currently a student in a two-year mindfulness meditation teacher training program with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield, studying Insight Meditation, or Vipassana.
