Psychotherapy is a collaborative relationship involving active listening, giving voice to thoughts and feelings, creative expression, and increasing self-awareness in a brave and validating space.
I received my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology: Individual, Couples and Family Therapy from Antioch University Seattle, USA. The degree is inclusive of creative arts therapies and drama therapy. I regularly participate in clinical consultations with other health professionals and seek opportunities for continuing education trainings to ensure that my skills remain sharp and up-to-date. I am licensed in the USA and certified in Narrative Therapy.
I am a multi-culturally informed, sex positive, feminist-minded professional with a passion for social justice. As a psychotherapist, I believe in helping clients explore their personal sense of self. This journey is not linear. There is no “one way” to be.
In the helping process, I utilize techniques from numerous evidence-based theoretical perspectives while recognizing the need to attend to cultural and other forms of human diversity. I work with each client to co-create a customized treatment plan that fits your specific needs.
