Telehealth (Online) Services

I am choosing to provide services exclusively via telehealth, both for safety reasons and to continue reaching clients in underserved areas. At this time I can only provide telehealth services for Washington State residents who are currently in the state.

Note: This is not an exhaustive list of services, just some specialties that I have chosen to highlight.

Anxiety shows up in many different forms and for many different reasons. Despite how challenging anxiety feels, it is actually there to help you by protecting you from danger. Even if those dangers aren't always real, the symptoms associated very much are. With some guidance and perspective, you can learn how to keep anxiety, stress, worry, and even panic in check, and begin to experience relief.


Many people think that depression is just about feeling sad, but in reality, it can also feel like numbness, guilt, laziness, isolation, irritability, anger, or something else. Grief, due to a death, breakup, divorce, or other change is also commonly misunderstood. Both emotions are intense and not well understood by people

who have not experienced them, likely leaving the grieving or depressed person feeling incredibly alone. Understanding and acceptance are crucial to moving through depression and grief in a productive way. 


ADHD and Neurodivergence

People with ADHD can often feel alone, different, and overwhelmed, and may develop subsequent mental health issues. This is especially true for girls and women with ADHD, who present with unique symptoms that are not well understood by teachers, caretakers, or medical professionals. Through a process of practicing executive functioning skills, finding more balance, and using mindfulness and self-compassion techniques, you can begin to better understand and accept yourself for who you are, lessening those sensations of loneliness and overwhelm.


Communication is often seen as the gold standard for resolving relationship distress. Often times, the real culprit of frequent conflict is a lack of emotional regulation in one or more partners. Attachment theory states that how you were raised influences your romantic style as an adult, and each style has different triggers that may be activated by your partner or partners. By becoming adept at regulating yourself, either in couple or individual therapy, you can begin to see more security, affection, ease, and clarity in your relationship.


I have extensive experience working with the LGBTQIA+ community, including individuals, couples, and youth. I take pride in meeting the unique needs of this group, and I also enjoy helping people explore their sexuality, gender, and identity, regardless of how they identify. I warmly welcome and accept all sexual orientations, gender identities, and couple constellations.


CCPT was pioneered by Virginia Axline and further developed by Rise VanFleet. The theory promotes total acceptance of a child and allows them to work through feelings and events in their own way. The therapist empathically recognizes and reflects the child's emotions and actions, and lets the child lead the session. Combined with regular updates and involvement from parents or guardians, this is an incredibly healing and powerful method for children and their families.
