I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFTA) in the state of Washington and I received my Masters in Couples and Family Therapy from Seattle University. My office is located in the lower Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle with easy access from Ballard, Queen Anne, Magnolia, South Lake Union, and Belltown.
Coming from a Family Systems background allows me to see and consider not only what is happening for a client internally, but the systems and context in which the client exists. With a holistic bio-psycho-social and spiritual lens, I welcome all aspects of my clients' sense of self-hood.
I have post-graduate training in evidenced-based relational therapies, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) and The Gottman Method. Additionally, I have specialized experience working with issues of grief and bereavement in families.
Outside of my professional life, and as a PNW native, I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible. I value nature as a way to feel a sense of awe, humility, and more connection to myself and to something greater.
