Biography

I received a Bachelor of Art’s degree in liberal arts from The Evergreen State College and a Master of Art’s degree in integral counseling psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies. My graduate school education was in marriage and family therapy with focus in Gestalt/Experiental-Humanistic, Depth/Psychodynamic, and Integral/Holistic counseling. I have provided therapy in San Francisco, CA, Albuquerque, NM, Seattle, WA, and Olympia, WA. I have provided counseling at counseling centers, community mental health agencies, and now in private practice. I have additional professional development, including in: LGBTQIA+, addiction, sandtray and expressive arts, trauma, psychedelic harm reduction, crisis intervention. I continue to develop with professional training and consultation, deepen with personal practices including meditation and yoga, and expand with relationships and community.

 

How I work with clients

I am a client-centered, trauma-informed, diversity-inclusive therapist. This is my foundation. How I practice is holistic, relational, existential-humanistic:

Holistic
Your body, mind, and self (or consciousness, soul or spirit) are all a part of being human. Each of these aspects has information for you. Often we can become experts at listening to one aspect more than the others. Counseling is a chance to pay attention to what else is happening for you, learn new ways to support all of you, and listen to your own wisdom.
Influenced by: Integral Counseling, Depth Psychology, Trauma-Informed Therapies, Transpersonal Psychology.

Relational
Harm happens in relationship, and healing happens in relationship. We often carry our past relationships into our current ones, even if we’re not aware of it at first. In counseling, we will tend to the truth of the relationship, and together, welcome all it brings up for you. Healing happens not just in you telling stories, but in the ways we recognize how those stories impact each of us in the moment.
Influenced by: Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Object-Relations Therapy, Systems Therapy.

Existential-Humanistic
Each of us has the parts of ourselves that we are aware of, and all the parts we have hidden away. Often these parts are in conflict, trying to keep us safe and get our needs met. In counseling, we pay attention in the moment to what is happening for you. Using our creativity, we will co-create opportunities to hear and connect to the other parts of yourself, to allow your fuller self to emerge and create new meaning for your life.
Influenced by: Gestalt Therapy, Existentialist Therapy, Non-Directive Play Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
