I am a clinical intern and M.A. in Couple and Family Therapy candidate at Antioch University, Seattle. I am also pursuing a Sex Therapy certificate as part of her degree program.
I strive to create a welcoming, safe, and non-judgmental space, where clients feel free to show up as their authentic selves to explore patterns of behavior and thinking that cause suffering. With kindness, compassion, and playfulness, I collaborate with clients to create more peace and contentment in their lives, while supporting them in overcoming negative emotions and shame.
I approach therapy from a relational lens, emphasizing the connection of trust that is created between therapist and client(s) as well as attending to the relational contexts that make up clients’ lived experiences. In my work, I help clients attune to the inherent wisdom and strengths that they bring to therapy, which support their growth and capacity for healing.
In therapy, I incorporate Attachment Theory, which considers how early experiences with parents and/or caregivers shape the way individuals feel about themselves, form relationships, and handle conflict.
Fun Facts: I identify as white, cis-gender, and middle class. I also identify as a spiritual person. I have the lived experience of a long-term chronic illness. My personal interests include hiking, film, photography, playing the piano, cooking, and laughing heartily with loved ones.
