telehealth and in-person
My training as a psychotherapist is rooted in the profession of social work, which honors the individual's dignity and worth with sensitivity to his or her cultural lens and lived experience. It is most important that my clients and I build a trusting connection so that we can identify their needs and build upon their strengths. Many of my clients are challenged by extreme anxiety and depression from trauma, addictive behaviors, and difficult relationships. Drawing upon mindfulness and somatic-based trauma training, I offer wellness skills for building resilience and self-compassion to manage cumulative stress. I provide a safe emotional space to gently guide clients to settle the nervous system and reprocess the traumatic response. I welcome older teens, young adults, and adults to in-person therapy in Washington State.
