Private Practice Office

THERAPY

 I work with: 

  • Individuals (adolescents, adults, seniors) 
  • Families
  • Groups

Areas of Focus:

  • Grief 
  • Anticipatory Loss
  • Bereavement 
  • Life Transitions
  • Life Balance 
  • Caregiver Support 
  • Co-Occurring Mental Health/Substance Use 

I offer a highly personalized approach, which is tailored to work in close partnership and collaboration with clients. My therapeutic style is authentic, relational, integrative and supportive. I am present and connected with each client and listen with compassion and curiosity, while always working from a holistic lens. I believe that each of us have inherent strengths and inner resiliency which are powerful tools for change and healing. Working from a strengths-based perspective, I integrate my knowledge and training in a variety of approaches (both traditional talk therapy and experiential modalities) in order to meet the specific needs of each client. I meet clients where they are at and build upon strengths, as well as offer different perspectives to help discover new ways of thinking and being in life. I also help clients explore meaning-making in their lives, particularly during difficult, challenging, and life-altering experiences.

Walk & Talk Sessions:

My office is located adjacent to the Sammamish River Trail in Marymoor Park. This is an option for individuals who are more comfortable in an outdoor setting and/or prefer incorporating movement into sessions. 

 

Telephone Sessions:

This service accommodates those who are located in the area but have challenging schedules, or have difficulty arranging transportation to the office. 

Pet Loss Support Sessions: 

I offer counseling sessions specifically for individuals who are experiencing anticipatory grief, bereavement, or who are caregiving a beloved companion animal. Losing a beloved animal can be a devastating and disenfranchised experience resulting in many people not receiving the validation, normalization, or support they need. With a joint specialty in grief and veterinary social work, and being a devoted pet parent who has navigated these issues I provide a safe, empathetic and supportive space for individuals to process, navigate and cope.
