There are many challenges life throws at us, and with our busy schedules, we often forget to take care of ourselves and listen to our needs. Not having the support we need to overcome those challenges can leave us feeling lost, depressed, anxious, angry, and stuck. It’s important for you to know that you are worthy of happiness and deserve to feel fulfilled in your relationships.

The journey of healing and progress can begin with Therapy. Perhaps you have new challenges and life decisions that have impacted you. Or maybe you have pain from experiences in your past that have not been forgotten. Our sessions will be a safe space where you can feel comfortable to bring your thoughts and receive support in a non-judgmental way. I have worked with adults, adolescents, couples, and college students, on challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, family conflicts, neurodiversity, identity, and work/career concerns. Regardless of the challenges you're facing, therapy can help provide hope.

I work with a person-centered approach, as I believe you are the best expert of your own story. I also enjoy using humor when it’s appropriate, as I feel it makes the session seem more like a conversation. My hope is to make you feel as though you are in the driver’s seat and I can be the passenger helping you navigate. I pull from many practices including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. Every person is different, and therapy will look different for every person. It’s important to find what works for you and pull from your strengths.

Some info about me: I am originally from San Antonio, Texas and I am happy to now call Seattle my home. I received both my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Outside of therapy, I enjoy playing video games, watching Netflix, and exploring the amazing food scene here in Washington. Taking that first step to reach out and seek help takes guts, and it’s a great step forward. If I seem like a good fit for you, please feel free to reach out.
