Liminal Psychotherapy

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.”

– Helen Keller

My Therapeutic Approach

Becoming a therapist is the craziest thing I’ve ever done. It is both everything I hoped it would be while also being nothing like I could have imagined. I attended The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology graduating in the Summer of 2017 as a relationally focused psychodynamic psychotherapist. This style of therapy focuses on depth as we explore various themes in your life and the intersections in which the past influences the present.

Essentially, I work from a place where everything that is happening therapeutically is between us. I’m listening for things we may not have language for as we get curious about the unconscious content that sits below the surface of our awareness. We’ll navigate the waters of your family of origin story, how your past informs the way you do life, how you relate to others, your conflict style, and the traumas that came along with you into adulthood. I’m extremely present to the here-and-now as tears may surface, anger may fill your body, or we get stuck somewhere together. Through our journey, it is curiosity that leads me to helping you name what you’ve never potentially named before, and for us both to see you in new ways.

For therapy to work well, it’s important that you bring an uncensored version of yourself. I invite you to say what’s on your mind in the moment, to be honest about your experiences, and to allow me to come alongside of you in this journey.
