My approach to therapeutic work is eclectic. Though I lean toward a psychodynamic, insight-oriented model, I adapt my approach to the individual and structure sessions accordingly. I bring compassion, sensitivity and creativity to the therapeutic relationship and work intuitively with my clients. I listen deeply and bring much life experience to my work. I believe it is important to create room for the expression of the many voices within us so that our individual complexity can be understood and valued.
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LICSW) in the State of Washington, and received my Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Washington. Additionally, I have training in Ericksonian Hypnosis and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic-Programing), which is sometimes referred to as “waking trance.” Though I don’t utilize these techniques directly, they provide a framework for me to work with and understand the power of the unconscious as it manifests in our daily lives, in our behaviors and decisions.
Whatever your reason for seeking support, I would be honored to walk with you on your journey.
