Background

I am a mental health counselor with a background in trauma, multicultural issues, and expressive arts therapies. I earned my Master’s Degree in International Disaster Psychology at University of Denver, and I am currently working toward her PsyD in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University Seattle. I especially enjoy doing creative, insight-building, and strengths-based work with preteens and teenagers who struggle with trauma, systems involvement, and social difficulties. I am passionate about equipping young people and their families with the knowledge and tools to thrive, even in the midst of whatever circumstances or challenges they’re facing. 

I have a wealth of experience working with children, teens, and families in a variety of inpatient and community settings. I use an integrative approach with the belief that every person is beautiful and unique, and so their treatment must be custom tailored to them. Drawing from Psychodynamic and Existential/Humanistic orientations as well as Systems and Feminist theories, I help each client paint a whole picture of themselves within their personal history, beliefs, circumstances, and strengths. I believe that building a strong therapeutic relationship with her clients is just as important in assessment as it is in therapy, and so I strive to be a supportive and empowering presence throughout the assessment process. 

It’s no doubt that the assessment process can seem daunting and even scary at first. I am here to be a source of support and advocacy every step of the way, including this stage, when you’re just thinking about whether you’re ready to start your healing journey! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or worries you may have. I would be honored to work together and support you in getting ready and excited for this step in your healing journey!
