It takes courage and vigilance to create a context where self-love can emerge.
— bell hooks

 

 

Welcome. You have already taken the first courageous step toward getting the help you or someone you love needs.

I commend you for taking a step toward self-love whether for you, your child, or your family.

I am a licensed mental health counselor serving clients in and around South Seattle, with an office in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. I work with children, young adults, and families, especially those who feel outside of the dominant culture. I provide relational psychotherapy from an attachment-focused perspective to assist clients on their journeys and I am passionate about and practice with a social justice lens. I provide individual and group therapy for children and young adults, and family therapy for parents and their children.

My areas of treatment focus:

  • Identity and issues around Belonging

  • Attachment and Relationship issues

  • Anxiety and Self-worth issues

  • Life Transitions

  • Grief and Loss

  • Transracial Adoption questions

  • Developmental Trauma and associated behaviors

  • Assimilation impacts

  • Family of Origin issues

  • Racial Issues

  • Cross-Cultural Issues

If you are interested in scheduling an initial appointment, I invite you to email me or leave a message for me indicating you would like to set up a new client appointment and what your time preferences are.
