Welcome. I deeply value creating space where you--all of you-- is welcome. I believe it is brave to begin therapy, to hope for something. Whatever brings you to seek therapy, I work to listen to the layers of your experience and the particularity of your story.

Using mindfulness and non-judgment we can pay attention to you in all of the complexity. I believe in the integration of mind and body, in the stories we tell ourselves and the stories we carry within us. I practice with the hope of empowering you towards authenticity and compassion-- towards you knowing and loving yourself.

More Info About My Practice

If you are planning on using insurance, I accept Premera, LifeWise, and some BCBS plans. I am an out-of-network provider for other insurance plans. I offer a limited number of student and sliding scale options for those experiencing financial hardship. If you are curious about this option, please ask. To talk more about therapy or to ask questions, please call or email me.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am passionate about working with women who are longing to know themselves-- who would like to grow deeper self-awareness and self-acceptance, who are curious about listening to the wisdom of their bodies and selves.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

It is an honor to witness the risk, the courage, and the resiliency of the human beings who come into my office--to walk alongside people grappling with trauma, grief, meaning, the wrestling of hope and desire, pain and fear. I consider it a gift to participate at the heart of these places, to offer a warm and creative space for mindful attention, compassion and possibility--for something new to emerge.
