Washington State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
Personal Information and Expertise
I trained at the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology graduating in 2007. My training was in relational therapy in a context of significant relationships and how the impact of those relationships inform our current way of relating. This also includes ideas of attachment theory and how our early, unconscious interactions, inform us and become conscious in our everyday interactions. This training has afforded me to work with many different clients, including children and families in a community mental health setting, kids and teens in school settings, and men women and couples in a private office environment. These clients presented many different interpersonal problems and therapy focused on each individual needs. I also highly value the time I spend in my own personal therapy to have a better understanding of myself as I sit with you.
I believe our relationships can be the source of our greatest joy and also our greatest heartache. The relationships, especially our early interactions, develop our current way of relating which can become problematic with a need of external perspective to assist in meaningful change.
I work in a safe, client based, mutual relationship with men, women, teens, and kids in an interpersonal relational therapeutic style. This mutual endeavor looks at what the client brings to a session so we can broaden perspective and work toward change that can have a holistic effect on a persons life. I believe our emotional, spiritual, and physical parts are connected and give us important insights to how we can feel more integrated, whole, and engaged everyday.
