I have been told my warmth, compassion, and genuine heart put others at ease from the moment we meet. My strengths-based approach to therapy allows us to recognize your strengths as well as your opportunities for growth. Together, we will work towards the change you seek. 


I am passionate about working with adults, tweens, teens, and their families (ages 10 and older). I have been providing therapy for over 14 years in both community mental health clinics and school settings. I am a licensed independent clinical social worker and supervisor in Washington and New York states (LW60678346; 080514). I primarily utilize cognitive-behavioral therapies (CBT) and am trained in 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). My clinical expertise includes anxiety, stress management, communication skills, adapting to life transitions, identity exploration, pregnancy, parenting, depression, grief and loss, trauma, infertility, and managing chronic illness. My personal experience with infertility and chronic illness led me to seek additional postgraduate training in these areas so that I can provide the best possible support to clients whose lives have been affected by similar issues. 


I earned my BA from Hamilton College and my MSW from Catholic University, where I began working with teens and families as part of my graduate program.  After completing my MSW, I worked at The Jewish Board in New York City, where I provided therapy to clients ages five and older, including individuals, couples, families, and facilitated groups. I also served as a member of The Jewish Board’s LGBTQ+-affirmative therapy unit. I have worked as a school counselor in both public and independent school settings. Prior to entering private practice in the fall of 2019, I worked as Lakeside School’s middle school counselor for five years.


I am a member of the following professional organizations: National Association of Social Work (NASW), American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and RESOLVE (The National Infertility Association). To benefit my clients and continue to grow as a therapist, I consult with my fellow therapists at Seattle Family Support, LLC.
