Therapy Services

I could be your way out of the woods.

Current Services: 

Located in West Seattle, I visit with outpatient clients as a doctoral-level provider in private practice. My visits are with individuals, couples, and families. I provide psychological, forensic, and neuropsychological assessments as well as counseling services. At Sound Psychotherapy & Assessment, LLC, I am a preferred provider for several insurance companies. See my Rates and Insurance page for more information.

Approach to Care: 

I am a generalist by nature, though I have had classical training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and the Primary Care Behavioral Health Consultation model. I have also had specialized training in recovering from addiction, and forensic interviewing, assessment, and treatment.  I prefer to get to know my clients, their presenting concerns and supports, and create a plan together to improve their lives. I enjoy becoming creative in selecting my interventions - considering no single therapy technique useful for every person. My interest is to empower and support my clients, working together and personalizing their therapy to suit them individually. I continually work to provide a safe and productive space for clients to overcome adversity, and care deeply about understanding each person's diversity in identity and presence. In my personal and professional life, I strive to remain open to and aware of my biases - including my privilege, identities, and beliefs. My style is direct and I like to explain by use of examples, so don't be surprised if you hear at least one analogy when you speak with me!

Specialties: 

My educational career has brought me to several passions in the field of psychology. I specialize in geek culture, recovery from substance addiction, gender, sexuality, and the LGBTQIA+ population. To learn more about the way I approach geek culture's potential in therapeutic intervention, check out my section on Serious Play

Common Questions: 

  • Will you see me if I'm not a geek? 
    • Of course! While geek culture is one of my passions, I am very interested in serving anyone who seeks therapy services.
  • What should I expect at my first visit? 
    • In my first meetings, I like to get to know clients better... gaining an understanding of what they'd like to address and how I can be most useful.
