A Little About Me

I grew up on the East Coast and spent most of my adult life in Vermont, where I worked with children of all ages in a school-based setting. The children I have worked with have inspired me in many different ways, and some of my greatest lessons have come from them. One of my favorites is to embrace adventure. Taking this lesson to heart, I have always wanted to explore the West Coast, and decided to pursue my career as a Marriage and Family Therapist here in Washington!

My Hobbies

I love playing outside! Whether it’s mountain biking, skiing, or just running around with my dogs, you will usually find me doing something out in nature. If the rain is plentiful enough to keep me indoors, you will probably find me reading a book (preferably Harry Potter) or practicing yoga. I am an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) and enjoy integrating elements of mindfulness and somatic awareness into my clinical work.


In 2022, I received my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Certificate in Play Therapy from Antioch University. I am currently working towards fulfilling the requirements in becoming a Registered Play Therapist (RPT). Prior to joining the Larch Counseling team, I interned at Sound Health, working primarily with children and adolescents and their families. I also worked with adults, focusing on supporting survivors of domestic violence.

My clinical approach is person-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed, and attachment-focused. I have extensive training in Child-Centered Play Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, and Filial Therapy, and use these modalities when working with young children and their families. I have Level I Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and in Emotionally Focused Family Therapy. I also use aspects of Internal Family Systems Therapy in my work with individuals, couples/relationships, and families. My greatest passion is in supporting individuals and relationships healing from emotional pain, trauma, and loss.
