About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Occasionally ridiculous, often clumsy. But also: calm, thoughtful, patient, honest, and down-to-earth.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I help easily misunderstood people, whether introverted, shy, or inhibited—or—outwardly expressive, gregarious, or impulsive, figure out how to wield their unique strengths, get out of their own way, connect with others, and thrive.

  • Together, we will:

    Rock this. It's one of the most socially appropriate times in modern history to be a bit of a mess, but all this upheaval and change also create a unique opportunity to go in entirely new directions. I'm here to support you in seizing this day.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Are looking to focus in on counseling for an intentional period of time. I offer a planned short-term approach, typically 3-4 months of weekly sessions, with flexibility to address individual needs and additional support as requested.

  • I became a therapist because:

    curiosity and empathy come naturally to me. I worked in social services and outdoor adventure education for years before acquiescing to grad school.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    My counseling services are offered exclusively online via secure live video for teens and adults located anywhere in Washington state or Montana.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I am an out-of-network provider for private health insurance and can provide a superbill statement for clients with out-of-network coverage to submit for reimbursement. I reserve a limited number of reduced fee spots for clients without coverage.
