Who I am as a Therapist
I believe that navigating the uncertainties of life is an innate part of being human. I am grounded in the assumption that our stories are shaped by the interactions and relationships we have with others. My role as a therapist is to help you understand the impact of your experiences and create a life that feels more authentic to you. I bring a curious, supportive, non-judgmental, and humorous presence to my therapeutic practice, providing you with a space that allows healing to transpire.
I am committed to the understanding that every person is capable of growth. I respect the unique path that led you here and am dedicated to meeting you where you are – inviting the tears, the laughs, and all the emotions and feelings that come with you. I work from a culturally-affirming practice, and I recognize the impact of oppressive systems on those holding underprivileged identities, including the BIPOC and LBGTQIA+ communities. I am hopeful that we can co-create a space that navigates self-acceptance, compassion, and developing the ability to trust yourself again.
I am passionate about working with the ambiguities and complexities of grief and loss resulting from heartbreak, major life transitions, or losing a loved one. I operate from Emotionally Focused Therapy and Narrative Therapy lenses and utilize a systems perspective and health at every size framework. I am honored to walk with you as a collaborative guide through this healing journey.

Who I am when I’m not a Therapist
As a native Californian, I soak up every bit of the greenery in the Pacific Northwest. In my free time I enjoy floating down the river, having charcuterie board picnics, baking a delicious pastry, and backpacking through national parks!
