I graduated from The Evergreen State College in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts. Additionally, I worked as a sexual assault and domestic violence advocate and educator at SafePlace in Olympia, WA from 2015-2019. I am currently a Master of Arts in Counseling student at St. Martin’s University, and am projected to graduate in June 2021. As a practicum student, I will be working with several clients at Rainbow Health Center under the supervision of Teresa Guajardo until December 2019.
As a practicum student counselor, I will be providing free eight-week brief therapy. My training thus far has been focused in Person-Centered Therapy, Feminist Therapy, Existential Therapy, Liberation Psychologies, Narrative Therapy, Integrative Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Counseling. This eclectic approach combines a client’s connection to themselves and their experience in the world. I enjoy working with people from a multitude of backgrounds, including folks from the LGBTQIA++ community, folks from under-served populations, folks facing socio-economic difficulties, and providing gender-affirming care. Additionally, my experience working as a domestic violence and sexual assault advocate has given me a deep passion and skills around trauma-informed care. I hope to move with you through the way you experience life and find areas together that need attention or healing. During brief therapy, we will primarily stay focused on the present and any issues currently arising for you.
I am providing 100% free therapy, as I am practicum student counselor.
