I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Associate (LMFTA) in Washington State, I provide counseling for couples, families, and individuals. I meet with clients both in-person and via telehealth. My office is located in Seattle’s Fremont Neighborhood and I use Thera-link for telehealth meetings. I work with clients ages ranging from early childhood (3+) through adulthood. I am neurodiversity affirming, trauma-informed, and strive to stay up to date with evidence-based research. As a mental health counselor, I believe that your life takes priority; no matter the extent of suffering or distress you are experiencing, you deserve to be heard and treated with unconditional positive regard. First and foremost, I am here to be with & listen to you.

I specialize in using the following play therapies: Child-Centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy (family play therapy), & Sandtray Therapy.
For talk therapy, I use strength-based therapy modalities such as Person-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy, & Humanistic Therapy.
