My Approach to Helping

In our sessions you will be given the space to openly discuss your life, you will be encouraged to explore your troubles without criticism or judgment, and I will provide observations and and reflections to you. Sessions will be focused on self-development, with the ongoing goal of developing fulfilling relationships, enhancing sexual intimacy, creating more effective patterns of behavior, deepening emotional expression, and creating life meaning.

My approach is depth-oriented, I use a blend of psychoanalytic, humanistic, existential, and cognitive therapies, while being open to each client's individual preferences and therapeutic needs. In therapy I will focus on your unique biological, environmental, and developmental process while also appreciating the larger systematic, cultural, and social influences that have shaped you. We will explore the ways in which you make meaning of the world around you. We will examine how your current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are shaped by your unique history and family system, your relationships, and personal adversity. My goal is to help you be in conversation with your suffering and become more aware of how wounds from your past are contributing to behavioral patterns that may be stalling your emotional and relational development. We will work together to create self-acceptance while consciously engaging with these patterns to obtain a fuller and more meaningful life.

More Info About My Practice

I've worked in the mental health field since 2008 conducting research and providing therapy for adults, couples, and groups in community mental health and private practice. I have a Masters Degree in Existential Phenomenological Psychology from Seattle University and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington state. To remain current in my field, I take continuing education courses, seminars, and workshops. I have spent several years in personal psychotherapy as it is my belief that a therapist can only take a patient as deep as she has been willing to go herself.

I also teach full time at Seattle University specializing in courses dedicated to growth and development and abnormal psychology. As part of my academic role I have conducted extensive research on the topics of intimacy and closeness.
