What is your style/approach to therapy?

I tend to agree with Jungian psychoanalyst James Hollis when he says: “We are invited to take a different view of our symptoms. Our first natural desire is to suppress them. But we must learn to read them as clues to the wounded wishes of the soul.” One of my guiding principles is that symptoms such as anger, anxiety, and depression are often expressions of much deeper wounds, fears, conflicts, and angst. The task of therapy, therefore, is to figure out what these symptoms are trying to say, not simply to make them go away.

Work History

I am a therapist based in Olympia, WA. I work primarily with young adults and adults. I see clients either in-person at my office or online using Zoom. Before becoming a therapist, I taught high school English and ESL for nearly 10 years in the San Francisco Bay Area and in the Olympia area. I burned out in 2016 after realizing that I cared far, far more about my students as people than about their views on Macbeth. With this realization in mind, I decided to pursue a new career in counseling.
