I specialize in working with individuals aged 18 and older, as well as couples who are facing a range of life and relational challenges. My therapeutic approach is founded on collaboration and empathy, with a primary focus on validating and understanding my clients’ perspectives and lived experiences. I aim to see you as you truly are and help you become the person you aspire to be.
My journey as a therapist is a second career for me, rooted in a lifelong curiosity about the diverse ways people experience life. Prior to my work in therapy, I served as a business owner in the tech industry, where I managed event production and project management for Fortune 500 companies. Additionally, I co-founded a technology startup that developed applications for Windows Phones, iPhone, and Android platforms. My professional background also includes experience at Microsoft Corporation and Apple Computer.
Through these high-pressure and fast-paced roles, I witnessed the transformative impact that effective therapy can have on an individual’s mental, physical, and relational well-being. In mid-life, I made the decision to pursue my passion for becoming a psychotherapist. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Communication from Western Washington University and furthered my education by obtaining a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. I derive immense joy from my work as a psychotherapist, where I offer non-judgmental care and collaboration to help clients navigate life’s most challenging seasons.
My diverse life experiences have granted me a strong foundation of compassion and awareness, which I leverage to address your current struggles. When working with me, you’ll notice a somatic-focused approach, where we explore the connection between your thoughts and bodily responses. By tuning into these sensations, you can gain valuable insights, understanding, and self-compassion as you navigate through your current difficulties. In our therapy sessions, I often inquire about “where” you feel something as opposed to “what” you feel, helping you comprehend the holistic impact of your experiences. This understanding can unlock the “why” behind your behaviors, responses, feelings, and emotions, facilitating lasting change. I often remind clients that change begins with small steps, as we become self-aware enough to recognize the initial stages that lead to a more fulfilling life or the transformative change you desire.
I particularly enjoy working with individuals who grapple with shame and self-criticism cycles, as well as couples where one or both individuals are neurodiverse. My passionate approach revolves around helping individuals foster self-trust and self-acceptance, both on an individual and relational level.
I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and currently reside in North Seattle with my identical twin teenage daughters, my partner, and our cat Mimi. Apart from my work as a therapist, I am an enthusiastic DIYer and artist who revels in outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, and biking.
