Movement toward healing and wholeness


My approach to psychotherapy involves the whole person in a co-creative process.  According to your reasons for seeking support, your sessions might include verbal therapy, art therapy, therapeutic yoga, breathwork, EMDR, and/or dreamwork to:


  • Honor your resilience and inner resources.

  • Heal grief, loss, trauma, physical and emotional pain, and/or family conflict.

  • Create new pathways, perspectives, relationships to self & others, and visions for the future.

  • Integrate body/soul/psyche, moving toward wholeness.


This work has at its foundation the belief in the power of the psyche, the therapeutic connection, and the creative process to heal us, drawing on the depth of our humanity.  Ultimately, it is a process of integration and transformation, offering us greater access to our richest internal gifts.

Fees & Insurance


I currently accept Kaiser HMO & PPO and Premera plans in my downtown location in the Securities Building. For Out-of-Network insurance benefits and clients who pay out-of-pocket, my fee is:


$150 per 50 minute session


I offer a 20 minute phone consultation free of charge to explore the possibilities for working together.  If you have financial barriers, please discuss this with me, as I have a limited number of sliding scale slots. 


Sessions are scheduled on a weekly basis unless otherwise arranged.

What lies behind us

and what lies before us

are tiny matters compared

to what lies within us.
