Welcome...

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

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 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 Brainspotting in my work.

I enjoy working with clients from a variety of cultures, identities, and backgrounds. Male clients in particular have said they find me comfortable to work with, as individuals or part of couple relationships. In general, my approach is collaborative and client-centered. I encourage you to reach out and ask whatever questions you have about 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!
