We listen to the narrative in order to transform it.
We can do this through attending to your current hopes and fears, exploring their roots, and imagining your future. If you need help to cope with overwhelming feelings in the moment, we will work together to help you use and strengthen any tools you already have as well as develop new ones where needed and appropriate.
My beliefs are formed by who I am and how the world has interacted with me as a trans woman. My therapeutic style is collaborative, anti-authoritarian, strengths-based, and fueled by an informed optimism.
I have worked as a mental health therapist since 2016 primarily in and for Seattle's LGBTQIA+ community and hold a Master's of Arts in Counseling Psychology from the Seattle School.
