I love to work with dreamers -- people with the passion and purpose to remake our society. I work with clients who seek therapy because they understand that justice in the world begins with healing ourselves from the inside out. 

I specialize in the intersection between trauma, mental health, and physical health. I provide treatment for individuals struggling with insomnia, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder. 

Clients usually come to me for therapy for one of two reasons:

Approach to therapy

My approach to therapy emphasizes the importance of both change and self-acceptance, and the art of therapy is how we navigate this tension.

I provide evidence-based therapy, which means that I use techniques and approaches that research shows are most likely to be effective for your type of concern. I primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is a present-focused, skills-based therapy. Clients who benefit from CBT are ready to make changes in their thoughts and actions/behaviors. 

I also draw upon principles and skills from newer forms of CBT, which are called "third wave" behavioral therapies; these include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). A core feature of both of these treatment approaches is mindfulness, a powerful and effective practice that improves attention, anxiety, mood, and health. 

Ultimately, I believe that therapy is successful when clients are in touch with their inherent vitality and authenticity.

What to expect from therapy

In CBT, clients take an active role in treatment by practicing the skills that are taught in-session in daily life. While the therapist brings theoretical and technical expertise, you are the expert on yourself.  

In the intake, I work with you to understand your history (how you came to be who you are) and clarify your present-day concerns. Together, we identify concrete goals with measurable outcomes and track progress week-by-week.

In the following sessions, I teach you specific tools that support your growth and wellbeing. Sessions are typically structured at the beginning (i.e. follow an agenda) and may involve handouts and worksheets that you complete throughout the week. Over time, after we have a bedrock of shared understanding, sessions can become less structured and more client-driven. 

Insurance & fees

I am not contracted with any insurance companies, which means that you are responsible for payment at the time of service. Payments are made online by credit card via Stripe. 

Your insurance provider may reimburse you for a substantial portion of my fee as an out-of-network provider. You will need to contact your insurance provider to inquire about your out-of-network coverage for individual mental health therapy. It is the client’s responsibility to understand their insurance benefits and the reimbursement process. 

Some questions to ask your insurance company are:

Land acknowledgment

The land where I live and work (Seattle, Washington) is stolen Indigenous Land and home of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish, Muckleshoot, and Stillaguamish Tribes. This land acknowledgement is one small gesture in addition to supporting Land Back movements and efforts to interrupt ongoing exploitation, such as paying rent

Community contribution

In 2024, 10% of net proceeds from this business will be donated to the Middle East Children's Alliance to provide emergency medical supplies to hospitals and assistance to displaced families in Gaza.
