I am working toward full license of Marriage and Family Therapy from Antioch University, Seattle and am working as an intern under the supervision of Abby White, LMFT. I have worked for many years in pediatric nursing and craved a new opportunity to work with individuals and families on a path to improving relationships and individual mental health. My therapeutic approach involves the consideration of your whole being; emotions, developmental stage of life, your nervous system, relationships, and health. I will incorporate lightness, play, and compassion in our interactions. Parenting support will focus on understanding, building on, and working with your child or teen’s coping and communication skills with respect and compassion. This includes attending to the needs that behaviors communicate. We will work together toward solutions from a place of safety.
I strive to be open and affirming to all and bring experience and interest in working through a neurodiversity positive lens. I understand we all bring multiple identities to our daily lives that play a role in our worldview and how we are treated. In therapy, we may address these complicated intersections. I will not make assumptions, but explore these areas with curiosity as they connect to your concerns.
