My Ideal Client

Do you experience stress in your relationships? Do you wish you could communicate better, understand your partner on a deeper level, and feel more connected? Maybe your partner or child is exploring their sexuality, gender identity or actively transitioning. These are unique experiences that call for a uniques set of skills. I work with couples and families from all walks of life to heal their relationships and form deeper connections.

My Approach to Helping

I believe we are relational, spiritual beings in search of purpose and meaning. As such, the quality of our relationships to our selves, partners, friends, extended family, pets, nature and work environments affect our well-beiand expresng and personal identities. I see my role as helping individuals, couples, and families find and express their authentic selves in relationships. To that end, I apply trauma-informed, family systems theory, narrative, and emotion-focused techniques. I collaborate with you and your loved ones on your journey to find more meaning in your life, and deepen your connections to each other.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have a Master's in Applied Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Family Systems Counseling from the Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) program. I also have a background as a job search coach and career counselor, specializing in healing from workplace trauma. As a cisgender, heterosexual ally with LGBTQIA friends and family, I want you to know you are not alone in your sexual or gender identity or exploration. As a family systems counselor, I want to do what I can to help you and your family live authentically with love and support.

Techniques I Use


  • Couples Counseling External link

    Whether you are wanting to strengthen your relationship or end it well, I strive to listen to what your relationship goals are and work with you collaboratively to help you meet those goals. I work to help your resolve misunderstanding and sort out the emotions you bring to your interactions with each other.

  • Family Systems External link

    Families take on a life and dynamic of their own. Sometimes a family can be deeply impacted by outside stressors or when a member is struggling. Through deep listening, I help you sort out what's going on in your family and assist in helping you develop resilience and deeper connection.

  • Eclectic External link

    Every person, couple, and family are unique and therefore require individual approaches. My training includes a variety of theories and techniques ranging from solution focused, to narrative, to multi-generational family exploration. Regardless of technique, I endeavor to deeply listen and use my skills and training to help you achieve your therapeutic goals.

Issues I Treat


  • Family Conflict External link

    Sometimes the pressures of the world can affect our family relationships. Busy parents may lose touch with their children and children may be stressed by school, peer pressure, and academic and social expectations. This can lead to conflict in the family. I strive to deeply listen to each member to understand your dynamic and shift to healthier relational patterns that foster love and connection.

  • Divorce External link

    While ending a marriage may be the best course of action, it is a major transition that can pose a strain on partners and their children. My goal is to help you 'divorce well' so that you can take care of your financial, logistical, and emotional needs while minimizing the impact on your children and extended family.

  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    I support the transgender, non-binary, and LGBTQ community with living in the world as their authentic selves. I will also work with their families and loved ones to foster deeper connection and understanding of one another.

  • Gender Identity External link

    Being transgender or non-binary presents a unique set of personal and social challenges. Simply stated, our society has not caught up with what it means to identify as a gender other than the one you were assigned at birth. As part of the Brave Space community, I offer counseling and medical referrals to transgender individuals who need support and affirmation to live authentically in the world.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    Over time, we can lose the connection with our partner that brought us together in the first place. We become emotionally distant and out of touch with each other. By using emotion focused and non-violent communication, I strive to help you strengthen your connection to each other and deepen your relationship.
