My Approach to Helping

I create safe spaces for people of all ages to embrace their inner world with self-compassion.

While I see adults for issues like anxiety, trauma and personal growth, I specialize in working with children and teenagers. My playful, engaging approach helps kids understand themselves, express big feelings, and develop emotional skills through creativity and imagination. For teens, I provide judgement-free support with identity development, relationships, school pressures and family dynamics. My integrative style blends psychodynamic depth with expressive arts. I partner with parents on connection and neurodiverse needs. If you or your child is seeking greater inner peace and wholeness, I would be honored to walk with you.

If you're an adult struggling with feeling disconnected from yourself or unrelentingly hard on yourself, I can help. I know it takes courage to reach out when you feel inner turmoil or like a stranger in your own body. But you don't have to do this alone. As your therapist, I'll walk with you on this path of self-discovery with care and compassion. My integrative approach invites all parts of you into the room - even those pieces you've tried to push away or deny. Together we'll shed light on inner wounds and rewrite old narratives that no longer serve you. You'll come to understand yourself and your needs in a fuller, more compassionate way. I offer a judgment-free space where we can unravel past hurts at your pace using creativity, embodiment practices, and our therapeutic relationship. If you're ready to reconnect with and care for yourself in a new way, I'm here to support you.

More Info About My Practice

I'm honored to work as a therapist with Relational Psych, a group practice in Seattle focused on relational and psychodynamic therapies. We believe healing happens through genuine human connection and insight into our inner worlds. Our team offers an integrative, trauma-informed approach to help you increase self-awareness and live more fully. At Relational Psych, you can expect judgment-free space to unpack past hurts, gain self-understanding, and rewrite old narratives that limit you. I draw from modalities like attachment-based therapy, parts work, art therapy, play therapy and more to meet you where you're at. Our shared mission is nurturing authentic connection and inner wholeness. I look forward to walking with you on your journey toward embracing all of who you are.

At Relational Psych, we have clinicians who provide psychological testing and evaluation. If testing could benefit you, we can coordinate integrated services so you receive testing with one of my colleagues along with therapy with me. We'll work as a team to help you understand, process and integrate your results so you can find greater self-understanding and a path forward.

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

I specialize in supporting those who are neurodivergent, chronically ill and or disabled, or recovering from religious trauma.

For neurodivergent clients, I'm skilled at assessment, coaching and psychotherapy to help you better understand how your brain works. We'll identify your needs and strengths so you can harness your unique wiring, practice true self-acceptance, and reduce shame and burnout.

For those with chronic illness and disability, I bring lived experience as a disabled person with chronic health challenges. I understand the complex grief and frustrations of adapting to limitations, and specialize in building coping strategies and resilience.

For religious trauma survivors, I'm skilled at helping you process grief, anger and loss of identity and community in a space free of dogma. I assist in rewriting internalized harmful narratives and foster personalized spirituality beyond rigid beliefs.

My integrative approach incorporates creativity, embodiment practices, parts work and the therapeutic relationship to help you reconnect with inner wholeness in the face of these challenges.

I also specialize in working with children and teens utilizing play therapy and expressive arts approaches. For differently wired kids, I'm skilled at providing assessment, psychoeducation and therapy tailored to their neurotype. My work with teens addresses identity development, relationships, school pressures, family dynamics, mood disorders, and trauma. I partner with parents on strategies for connection and meeting the child's needs. My overall aim is nurturing self-esteem and emotional skills for relating.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to better understand yourself and your relationships. With an empathetic guide, you can explore your inner world - including past experiences, emotions, patterns and beliefs - to gain insight into what may be holding you back from living fully. Together we identify self-limiting narratives formed in childhood so these can be rewritten. There is healing power in feeling seen, heard and understood. Psychotherapy offers a judgement-free space where all parts of your story are welcomed, even those parts you've tried to push away. As self-awareness grows, you can integrate fractured pieces to experience greater inner wholeness and act with increased compassion towards yourself. You'll be empowered to care for your needs, set healthy boundaries and build the life you want.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

In my view, the purpose of psychotherapy is to help you embrace your full humanity - light and dark - so you can live more authentically, relate more compassionately with yourself, and build connections that nurture your spirit. Therapy provides a space where your inner world is honored, not rushed or "fixed." The therapeutic relationship becomes a microcosm for healthy relating. My role is to walk with you, not in front of or behind you, as you unpack old hurts, gain self-understanding, and rewrite limiting narratives. While we all contain multitudes, you are so much more than your wounds. Healing happens through integrating disconnected parts of self and relating to yourself with care. You will come to appreciate yourself as the complex, changing being that you are.

My Role as a Therapist

What lights me up about this work is witnessing people reconnect with their inherent worth and start relating to themselves with compassion. I'm honored to sit with someone in their pain without trying to rush through it or "fix" it. It's a privilege to hear people's stories and watch them integrate fractured pieces to find more wholeness. When old core narratives transform and clients report feeling more freedom and joy, it's profoundly moving. My role is to help you embrace all that you are - the dark and the light - on the journey toward living more fully. Seeing people come home to themselves and their bodies, able to care for their needs, is why I do this healing work.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

It's understandable to feel hesitant about starting therapy. The idea of opening up to a stranger can feel vulnerable. But I want to normalize that therapy is for everyone, including those who don't have diagnosable mental illness. Most people have some area of their life they want to improve, relationship they want to understand better, or part of themselves they want to embrace more fully. You don't have to wait until you're in crisis to benefit. Think of therapy as preventative care for your mental health and relationships. An empathetic therapist provides tools to better handle stress, build resilience, gain self-awareness, and live aligned with your values. I offer a judgement-free space to better understand yourself and experience the human connection we all crave. You are worthy of inner peace and joy. When you're ready to invest in yourself, I'm here.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

If you've had an unhelpful therapy experience in the past, I understand that can make taking the first step feel harder. Not every client-therapist match is the right fit, and no therapist gets it right 100% of the time. What's important is that you felt seen, heard and cared for in the relationship. Ethical therapists will continually check in about your experience and adapt to meet your needs. I encourage transparency about what did and didn't work so I can support you best. I specialize in relational depth therapies because I believe healing happens in the space between us through genuine human connection. My priority is offering presence, empathy and compassion for all parts of your story. Past difficulties in therapy don't mean this attempt will go poorly. I'm committed to clients feeling safe, understood and empowered in our work together.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

When choosing a therapist, consider what you want to address and seek someone with expertise in those areas. Look for clinician descriptions that resonate with your experience. Notice if a therapist reveals something personal, as this vulnerability indicates they bring their whole self into sessions. Research therapeutic approaches to find ones aligning with your preferences. Consider practical factors like location, availability, and whether they take your insurance. Notice how you feel interacting - do you feel safe, heard, and understood? Pay attention to your gut. Finding the right fit allows you to open up and do the deeper therapeutic work. Don't settle out of scarcity fears. Though it takes effort to seek out a new provider, you're worth finding someone you truly click with. Trust that with time and the right match, you?ll experience the full benefits therapy offers.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The length and frequency of therapy varies based on each client's unique needs and goals. Some benefit from short-term therapy over a few months to cope with a life transition, while others engage in longer-term depth psychotherapy for increased self-understanding and personal growth. Sessions typically last 45 minutes and occur weekly or biweekly, though we can discuss the cadence that works best for you. Some start with more frequent sessions to build trust and momentum. The most important factors are your readiness for change, the fit of our working relationship, and an agreed upon therapeutic plan. I'm happy to assess duration as we go, adjusting the frequency and number of sessions to serve your evolving process.
