Now Accepting New Clients!
“You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one. ”
Do you constantly feel like no one gets you? Or how you never seemed to fit in and were picked on because of how you look, act, and think? That loneliness feels crushing. You've probably felt ashamed of who you are. Maybe over the years, you've tried to be "normal" and realized your life feels empty and inauthentic. Or maybe you've resisted mainstream society, but it's left you socially isolated, depressed, anxious, perhaps even traumatized. You are not alone. My goal as a counselor is to give you a space where you can share your story, feel supported, and most importantly be seen for who you are.
AREAS OF FOCUS
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. You are the expert of your own life. Therapy is a collaborative and creative process. Although I draw from approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative, and Existential therapy, we will choose what works best for you based on your unique experiences, relationships, culture, worldview, and intersecting identities. Wherever you are in your journey, I am honored to walk alongside you.

My areas of focus are:
Creativity and creative blocks

I also work with other common issues:
Adjustment issues/life changes
Grief and loss
Existential issues (finding meaning and purpose)
If you are interested in potentially working together, the best way to reach me is via email. From there, we can schedule a free 15-20 minute phone consultation to explore what brings you to counseling and to address questions you may have. If I determine we may be a good fit, we can schedule a first session.
I try to respond to messages within 24 hours. Please be aware that e-mail cannot be guaranteed to be confidential, so if you have clinical information to convey, it's preferable to share that via phone or through the secure client portal.
If you are currently in crisis, please call 911, or the 24-hour King County Crisis LIne, at 1-866-427-4747.
