About me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate working with couples and individuals.

Therapy can be helpful for navigating and understanding the intricacies of life. Whether you are entering a difficult season, wanting to connect and know your true self, or needing help to find a new perspective, therapy can be a remarkable journey of self-discovery and connection. In our sessions, you'll find a non-judgmental therapeutic environment where you are safe to be authentic, honest, and open.

For couples, therapy can be used to support the natural ebb and flow of relationships. Couples therapy is an opportunity to re-establish connection, learn communication skills, and begin to develop a deeper sense of knowing your partner. With a focus on emotion, we will co-create a space that values practicing empathy, vulnerability, seeking new perspectives, and listening skills. I act as a compassionate ally for both you and your partner as you navigate the journey of your relationship.

Whether you are an individual, a couple, or a family seeking support, my approach honors your unique needs and circumstances by meeting you where you are. Here, we will cultivate a relationship built on trust, allowing you to explore your inner world, heal from past wounds, and strengthen your connections with others. By ensuring that your life story is at the heart of our work together, we will create a holistic and affirming therapeutic experience.

My educational journey began at Oberlin College, where I pursued a bachelor’s degree in psychology and biology. I further honed my skills and knowledge at Seattle University, earning a Masters in Couples and Family Therapy, which laid the groundwork for my work in systemic therapy. Before stepping into the world of counseling, I immersed myself in reproductive health, working as a medical assistant, doula, and patient advocate. This experience enriched my understanding of life's transitions and the power of support and connection.

When I’m not in the therapy room, you can find me exploring the vibrant city of Seattle with my beloved dog, soaking in the energy of live music, or enjoying heartfelt moments cooking with my friends and family.
