Welcome to my website, and congratulations on taking the first step toward getting the support you need.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Adoption and Foster Care Therapist and my office is located in downtown Seattle. I offer a free initial 20-minute consultation to all potential clients, and have flexible hours, including some evening availability.
I know that finding the right therapist can be daunting. Please feel free to call me with questions, or to set up a consultation to see if we could work well together.
I work with children, adolescents, adults and families and specialize in counseling those who experience themselves as outsiders to dominant culture and who may feel "other" due to lifestyle, oppression or societal and family bias.
My practice is focused on client strengths and possibilities rather than deficits or pathology and I will strive to tailor your therapy specifically to your needs rather than asking you to fit your reality into a particular theory or school of thought.
I use an anti-oppression lens in my work with clients and have a passion for social change on both the macro and micro levels. I believe that individual transformation through therapy is micro social change that can benefit the world at-large.
