About Me

New Leaf Counseling; A Private Practice, LLC

For as long as I can remember, I have sought out harmony, connection and meaning. My curiosity of people and personalities, and desire for deeper intimacy pulled me into the intersecting spheres of psychology, philosophy and spirituality. These wells of interest developed into a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at the University of Washington and a Masters of Counseling degree at The Seattle School of Psychology and Theology.

Presently, I continue to work with individuals of different cultures, religious or non-religious, who grapple with life issues, grief, trauma and recovery, and relationship difficulties. I take great personal joy and fulfillment in each person with whom I have the honor of unraveling life’s challenges together.

What I Do

Services Offered

We are all on different points on the journey to knowing ourselves better. While my ultimate aim is to join you in discovering your unique purpose and true freedom, I draw upon several psychological modalities to help you with your current difficulties.

Existential Therapy
Discover a deeper sense of purpose and meaning in an Existential Therapy session. This therapeutic approach explores the capacity for self-determination and navigates life's fundamental concerns. Unlock innate potential to live a purposeful and authentic life.

Psychodynamic Therapy
Unearth and understand the profound roots of emotional distress in a Psychodynamic Therapy session. This intensive exploration unravels unconscious patterns and past experiences that dictate current behaviors to promote growth, broaden self-awareness, and nurture emotional maturity.

DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy)
Learn to navigate the emotional roller coaster more effectively in a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) session. It emphasizes the development of key life skills like mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. This can transform maladaptive behavior patterns and promote mental resilience.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
Break free from the shackles of self-defeating thoughts with a session of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This solution-focused therapy aids in identifying and changing destructive thought patterns, leading to an improvement in behavior and emotions. The goal is to replace maladaptive patterns with positive alternatives.
Show More
ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
Embrace full, vibrant living in an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) session. This treatment cultivates psychological flexibility, allowing more effective handling of stress and emotional hardships. The process centers around a fiery embrace of life's challenges, rather than avoidance.

My Approach


New Leaf Counseling, a  psychotherapy practice based out of Bothell, Washington.

My Commitment


Psychotherapy is both a science and an art. Research shows that modalities and theories do not significantly differ in their effectiveness for change. What this proves is that a considerable part of the therapeutic process is the transformation that occurs in being in a safe and loving relationship.

A skilled therapist will reflect back to you who you truly are (most of us do not have “clean mirrors” in our lives, nor such honesty in relationship) to help you understand your impact on others and the ripple effects that may occur in your way of relating. This way of relating typically creates a pattern in our lives that may cause unnecessary suffering and pain, loneliness and emptiness in our relationships.

A good therapist will also help you to heal old wounds and false beliefs about yourself and the world in the context of the therapeutic relationship. In this safe place, you can explore and experience a healthy and unconditional relationship.


I aspire to empower every person I work with and bolster their resilience. I hope for a world where everyone can readily access mental health resources. Compassion, understanding and transformation are at the heart of each session— I am committed to this course.


My calling is to guide you gracefully through life’s myriad complexities and transitions. Through my variety of therapeutic services, I provide the safe space you need for introspection and personal growth. I’m a firm believer that everyone is entitled to good mental health and my goal is to deliver personalized, empathetic support. I am here to help you progress, one healing step at a time.
