Welcome...

Do you hope for better but need a hand getting there?

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate based in Seattle, Washington. I have a passion for supporting emotional growth and work best with clients who are motivated to improve important relationships in their lives, including the relationship with self. A family systems perspective is at the core of my approach: we are products of and influenced by the relationships in our lives. For clients affected by trauma, I frequently use                                                in my work.

Colleagues and friends describe me as insightful, compassionate, and motivated. I have worked successfully with clients from a variety of cultures, identities, and backgrounds and welcome you to my practice.

Come as you are!

All successful therapy begins with a trusting therapist-client relationship. I offer a free 20-30 minute phone consultation for new clients to ask questions and discuss their needs for therapy. Please contact me to schedule your time. I look forward to hearing from you to explore how we can work together.

 

Please do not hesitate to call.

I am happy to speak with you!
