Hi, my name is Lina. I studied counseling psychology at The Seattle School, focusing on neurobiology of mental health, attachment theory, psychodynamic relational theory, and social justice approaches to therapy.

I have a postgraduate certificate in Play Therapy from Antioch University Seattle, where I completed practical courses in play therapy, sand tray therapy, and filial therapy (CPRT). With over 10 years of experience in the mental health field, including working for foster care agencies, community mental health agencies, youth support groups, Edmonds Community College, and a comprehensive care clinic for prenatal exposure, I am excited to support the community through therapeutic services for kids, teens, and adults. My goal is to bring my whole self to the therapeutic experience, creating a welcoming and authentic space for therapy sessions.
