I believe in putting every client at ease so that we can build upon your strengths, uncover areas of challenge and the patterns that no longer serve you, and work toward your goals and ambition. Together, we will work gently but steadily, to ensure lasting change.
Before entering private practice in 2019, I provided therapy in mental health clinics and school settings for over 14 years. I specialize in anxiety, stress management, communication skills, life transitions, identity exploration, pregnancy, parenting and adapting to parenthood, depression, grief, loss, trauma, infertility and assisted reproductive technologies, and chronic illness. I am especially passionate about supporting individuals and couples experiencing infertility because of my own experience with it, which inspired me to pursue additional postgraduate training and supervision in this area.
I work with adults, teens, and tweens (ages 10 and older). Primarily, I utilize evidence-based modalities and am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR), Mindfulness, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I hold a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Hamilton College and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from Catholic University. I began my career at The Jewish Board in New York City, where I provided therapy to clients of all ages, facilitated DBT groups, and trained other therapists in evidence-based modalities. I served as a member of The Jewish Board’s LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy unit and worked as a school counselor at Stuyvesant High School. Upon moving to Seattle in 2014, I served as a counselor for the Lakeside School for five years before starting a private practice.
Professional memberships include: National Association of Social Work (NASW), American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and RESOLVE (The National Infertility Association). I am a licensed independent clinical social worker and supervisor in Washington and New York states (LW60678346; 080514). To benefit my clients and continue to grow as a therapist, I consult with my fellow therapists at Seattle Family Support, LLC.
Together, we will work towards the change you seek.
