I work in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. I want to help you create a life of depth, meaning, and gratitude.
My speciality is working with cultivating emotional resilience and intimacy with masculine people. I also love working with issues of spirituality, including spiritual wounding or issues arising from spiritual growth.
In my work, we first stabilize any crises engendered by depression, anxiety, trauma, loneliness, and shame. That is enough for many, but I believe these issues often arise from deeper problems. The next phase of work, if you wish, is to till the emotional soil of your soul, breaking up old roots and weeds so new things can grow.
Working With Me
You might be feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or deeply distressed. You’ve probably tried a lot of things to make your life better but cannot break out of patterns that cause you suffering. Deep down, you may still hope you can have the life you desire but fear therapy will be another disappointment.
I know that deep, profound personal change is possible through a strong, safe, trusting therapeutic relationship. If you are willing to show up as you are, I will work to earn your trust and confidence. I will provide warm, curious, nonjudgmental presence and offer my guidance to help you become calm and grounded with your distress, know yourself better, and find your path to depth, meaning, and gratitude.
In my experience, the greatest healing comes when we can befriend and listen to our distress. My job is to help you create the inner space, calm, and connection you need to get those parts of you in conflict to start working together. Here is a deeper description of my approach to therapy.
