With a Masters in Psychology from Seattle University, I've been a licensed mental health counselor since 2010. My existential approach, shaped by a near death experience, focuses on creating meaning by facing life's challenges with courageous vulnerability and authenticity. I integrate mindfulness based cognitive psychology with timeless philosophical wisdom to support Clients in navigating their paths toward self-discovery and meaningful change. Symptoms such as anxiety or depression are often signals calling us to address something that has gone awry if we are to regain balance in life.
Relationships are at the center of life and my practice. In couples counseling, I employ the Gottman method and Emotion Focused Attachment Therapy which provides a structured approach to foster healing and connection. You and your partner will learn scientifically proven methods of communicating and resolving your conflicts in a safe environment to create a sustainable foundation for your future.
