Meet Dara.

Individual & Couples Therapist

Washington State

Telehealth only

Hi, I'm Dara (she/her)

I am a relational therapist with a theoretical orientation based in attachment theory. I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy to help you create secure attachment in your life. I also use a somatic approach to explore emotions that are expressed as body sensations. As a clinical intern, who also specializes in sex therapy, I offer low-cost therapy services.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, and the client is the expert of their own life. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that encourages exploration of self and relationships, by examining attachment (in)securities, internalized oppression, and family of origin narratives. I am compassionate and help my clients to live their most authentic lives. My orientation is strength-based and she believes that healing happens in the presence of others.
