I specialize in providing treatment for individuals and couples experiencing:
Grief and Loss
I am a sex positive therapist and work with clients of all genders and relationship constellations.
Addressing Old Patterns & Building New Paths
I work with individuals to develop treatment goals that align with who they are and how they choose to walk through the world. I specialize in helping people identify and achieve their therapeutic goals and develop strategies to address issues that cause pain, anxiety, and stress. I tailor a combination of theories and evidence-based treatment modalities to the individual needs of each client.
Relationship/Couples counseling is a central part of my practice. Rekindling the fire that burns in romantic relationships, making decisions about the future or addressing issues in the past can be a daunting endeavor - - but a necessary one. Feeling heard, seen, met, and understood by your partner is fundamental to the health of relationships and a theme in my work with couples.
Perhaps your relationship is going through major transitions (infidelity, infertility, codependence, etc.) or maybe small recurring conflicts seem to be draining the life from your partnership. Perhaps you are so frustrated that you are considering separation or maybe you are happily in love and want to maintain the quality of the relationship. Wherever you find yourself and your relationship, I can offer a space to help you and your partner find your way back to one another.
Resolve conflict in a productive and respectful way
Understand yourself and your partner better
Communicate needs and feelings
For relationship/couples work, I use a variety of modalities including the Gottman Method, Attachment Theory and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Whether it be farming on a Kibbutz in Israel, helping deliver sustainable sanitation solutions in the Nairobi slums, counseling University students in Northeastern Nigeria or partnering with the Giriama people on the coast of Kenya to propagate health education in the region, my dedication to understand myself and serve others has led me to this work. Through a vast array of formative life experiences coupled with my training as a psychotherapist, I am able to understand a wide breadth of human experience and provide clients with tools and skills to enhance their relationships and improve their lives.
As a Washington State Licensed Mental Health Counselor - Associate (LHMCA - MC60929202), I am dedicated to integrating innovative methods and techniques into my practice. I regularly take part in trainings to continue my education.
I provide therapy in English and KiSwahili.
I look forward to working with you!
