I grew up in a multicultural, multi-religious, inter-abled, working class family, and have been exploring the intersections of identities, relationships, and communities ever since. I have a master's degree in theological studies from Harvard University, and a master's in counseling psychology from Saybrook University/Leadership Institute of Seattle. I've done specialized coursework in Buddhist Psychology and Gestalt Therapy, am trained and supervised in EMDR therapy for trauma, Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, as well as AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) for individuals. I've led mindfulness groups in Washington State prisons and community clinics, and have been seeing clients in a private counseling/coaching practice since 2011. I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in the state of Washington and Massachusetts.
