My Approach

I am an artist and a licensed mental health counselor in Washington State (LH60830622). I provide psychotherapy services for those seeking to identify their values and dreams, untangle restrictions, and design more practical solutions for living a soulful life. I enjoy helping clients explore their thoughts and beliefs, inspirations and feelings and address the conflicts that betray our best intentions. Often, this includes exploring barriers to self-esteem, tending anxiety and depression, and understanding relationships as members of families impacted by systemic oppression, mental illness, and/or addiction. I work with adults and teens (over 15) in Seattle and Kirkland and offer workshops throughout the year.
