Clients

I love to work with individuals with ambitious dreams, 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 therapy for individuals struggling with insomnia, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder. 

Approach to therapy

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. For those who are interested, I also teach mindfulness meditation, which is a powerful and effective practice that improves attention, anxiety, mood, and health. 

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 these outcomes week-by-week.

In the following sessions, I teach you specific tools that support your growth and wellbeing. Sessions are typically structured (i.e. follow an agenda) and involve handouts and worksheets that you complete throughout the week. 

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: 

It may be helpful to share with your insurance company these service (CPT) codes when inquiring about your plan's coverage:

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

Giving back

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. https://www.mecaforpeace.org
