You may be seeking therapy for various important reasons, and we will work together to understand what brought you in and your hopes for therapy. This discussion will be an ongoing process that we will return to throughout our time together. In the therapy relationship, we will achieve greater awareness of your strengths, goals, and problematic patterns, and develop strategies and insights that enhance your well-being.
I offer a complimentary 20-minute phone consultation, which will be useful for determining if we are a good fit moving forward. I look forward to learning more about you.
My Therapeutic Background
I am a licensed independent clinical social worker and psychotherapist with over 7 years of clinical experience working with individuals and groups, as well as supervising student therapists to reach their full professional potential.
I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from University of California, Berkeley where I focused on community mental health treatment. Prior to going into private practice I interned and worked in inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment programs, community mental health centers, and primary care clinics in San Francisco and most recently Seattle. Working in these settings has afforded me the opportunity to gain experience with many evidence-based interventions for mental health and substance use disorders. I have enjoyed collaborating with professionals in other disciplines, including psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychologists, physicians assistants, nurses and occupational therapists. I am originally from San Francisco and have been living in Seattle since 2018.
