Mental Health Counseling

I provide client centered therapy for individuals and couples from ages 13-up. My approach is warm, compassionate and collaborative. I use a strengths based approach, affirming what works for clients by empowering the experiences, skills and resources they may already have. Where clients do not feel they have these assets, I can employ a variety of interventions such as Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Psychodrama, Creative Therapies, Archetypal Therapies and Psychoeducation, among others. I am committed to ongoing anti-oppression work in myself and recognize how social memberships (such as race, class or gender, for example) may affect a client’s experiences within their psychology as well as within the therapeutic relationship. I strive to create a safe container for clients to do their work and to have authentic, transformative and healing experiences.​

Due to Covid-19, sessions are currently being held via a HIPPA compliant teleheatlh platform. Clients will need access to a stable internet source and a confidential room and/or location. 

 

Sessions are paid at the time of service and range from $80-150. Sliding scale is available and can be arranged at the time of intake. Payment is accepted via cash, check, and electronic payment. (Electronic payment is necessary for telehealth appointments).

I see individual teens, adults and couples in a peaceful and private studio located in the forest, close to downtown Olympia. I believe that nature, its seasons and cycles, can offer us an incredible template of cues to use in navigating the human experience. This therapy space not only offers privacy and comfort to patients, but time in nature to elevate the healing process.
