As I worked over a decade as a photographer, I didn’t realize I was training to become a therapist. That time was about paying careful attention to the interplay of light and the particularities of my subjects. I learned that the act of being seen is one of the most essential human experiences. I needed a way to push deeper into these themes, and therapy provides that. I sought a training environment that honors the mystery, complexity and integrative qualities of people. I hold a masters in the art of counseling psychology, and that art continues to evolve with careful attention and a sustained sense of curiosity.
What Counseling Is:
Counseling is a space where we focus with intensity and grace on the areas of life that feel chaotic or stagnant. It’s a space to bring understanding to the parts that have remained silent or provide comfort to the internal voices that have gotten too loud. It’s a space to become more connected and integrated, more whole. And, ultimately, therapy is a space that is meant to no longer be necessary.
Who I Work With:
While I work with a wide range of adult clients, most often I work with clients who are struggling through stress, depression, traumatic experiences and anxiety. Many of my clients are also working through issues related to their family of origin as well as ongoing relational patterns.
I received my MA from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. I have training in EMDR, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Attachment Theory and Object Relations. But, ultimately, the experiences of my clients hold the most weight.
