Mental Health Counseling

Welcome to my practice. 

It is my passion to blend ancient philosophies of yoga and wellness with modern anatomy, neurobiology, and trauma research. As we journey thorough life, our life imprints upon us. This happens naturally within the body via the senses and encodes into the body's memory, the nervous system. This sometimes creates habitual holding patterns in the body or mind and/or distorted views of reality based of prior experiences; especially if they were overwhelming, scary, or unpleasant. This is a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. By observing the stories we are telling ourselves to be true, we can create change in how we perceive the world around us.

Recently, the #metoo movement has brought light on the darkness of sexual assault in this world. Anxiety, depression, isolation, fearfulness, and pain are just a few associated symptoms. Our memories live in our mind, as well as the body. Sometimes, talk therapy alone is not enough. If this you, you do not need to face this alone. Along with psychotherapy, I off therapeutic yoga. Modern research has shown a direct link to the clinical effectiveness of incorporating mindfulness and yoga within a therapeutic framework. This unique approach can help decrease chronic pain, PTSD symptoms, and rebalance the nervous system.

I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of Washington and received my Master of the Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University here in Seattle. Inspired by the depth of clinical research and my own curiosity, in 2015 I completed my yoga teacher training through a Yoga Alliance approved school and have since been certified in Yin and Restorative yoga.
