West Seattle office

I believe therapy is a sacred place where we explore the tension between acceptance and change. Using evidenced-based therapies, I work with adult individuals and couples struggling with a variety of concerns, including relationship issues, intimacy and sexual health, and substance use or addiction. I also provide care for individuals and couples grappling with the effects of infertility, perinatal mental health concerns like postpartum depression and anxiety, and the transition to parenthood. I work from a family-systems, strengths-based perspective to help clients get ‘unstuck,’ turn towards one another for connection, and live into their values.

Feeling disconnected? Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) can help you and your partner reconnect, rebuild your bond, and deepen your relationship. We will work together to discover the hidden patterns that led to disconnection and explore how to re-discover that which keeps us safe, fulfilled, and loved.

My previous professional experience ranges from providing intensive family therapy in a residential substance use treatment facility, to providing brief, on-call solution-focused therapy in a primary care doctor’s office. I hold a Masters of Science in Marriage & Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific University. Prior to that, I worked in international development and non-profit management and earned my BA in Human Services from The George Washington University in Washington, DC.

My current professional affiliations include: American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists; Washington Association of Marriage and Family Therapists; American Society for Reproductive Medicine – Mental Health Professionals Group.

A southern transplant to the PNW, I’ve been described as a quick-study, am committed to furthering justice and equity in our world, and like to bring humor into the therapy room. I am LGBTQI+ affirming. In my personal time, I enjoy being by the water with my husband and son.
