Focus Area: Clinical Psychology

Licensed in: Washington

I believe therapy that combines emotional processing and skill development will lead to a greater sense of empowerment and life-fulfillment. I strive to provide a space where clients feel seen, heard, and unconditionally accepted. With authenticity, I gently challenge clients, which I hope will encourage an increase in self-awareness and will foster opportunities for clients to respond versus reacting to life and its many obstacles.
