My Practice

I offer therapy to couples and individuals in my NE Seattle office. A significant portion of my practice is dedicated to helping couples who would like to repair and strengthen their relationships. The remainder of my practice is focused on helping individuals improve and strengthen relationships, work with life stressors and transitions, issues of identity, as well as depression and anxiety. A significant portion of my practice includes work with those who are neurodiverse or whose partner is neurodiverse.

What I’m Like As a Therapist

It is important to me that clients feel seen, heard, understood, and accepted. I see my role as a therapist as a collaborator or someone who helps to facilitate change, generate insight, and guide towards healing. I have the expertise and I will use it but you are the expert in your life, your own experiences, and your emotions. I will use my education and training to help you achieve your therapy goals.

I am trained as a marriage and family therapist (MFT). MFTs use a systemic lens when working with clients. This means that I do not view my clients in isolation but in relation to others and the world they inhabit. My overall approach is strongly informed by attachment theory and specifically Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I also draw Psychodynamic Therapy and aspects of experiential therapies, and psychodynamic therapy.
