I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA, WA Reg. MC60602145) and received my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from City University of Seattle in 2015. I've also completed specialized training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples (EFT-C), which emphasizes the importance of attachment, intimacy and communication in relationships.

I encourage transparency and honesty about the process of therapy, and many find my open demeanor reassuring.
