I work full-time in private practice, with young adults and adults dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship issues and/or sexual trauma. Most of my work with patients is psychodynamic oriented, primarily through the lenses of object-relations and intersectional feminism.
I have a background working with adolescents, first through secondary education (teaching math) and then through non-profit community work. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, spent my twenties in the San Francisco Bay Area, then returned to Seattle for graduate school in Counseling Psychology. Upon completing my masters degree in 2011, I worked as a Teaching Assistant at The Seattle School for Theology and Psychology while building my private practice as a therapist in the Seattle area, which has been full time for several years now. I primarily work with twenty or thirty-somethings, some of which is short-term symptom management but more often the relationship turns into longer-term therapy, working with underlying dynamics contributing to presenting issues.
