WELCOME.

You may have landed on this page because you are yearning for greater freedom and choice in your life.

We all find ourselves struggling at times.

 

My approach is compassionate, somatic, mindful, and informed by a deep understanding of attachment and childhood development as well as a recognition of how social systems shape us. I am profoundly inspired by a depth approach to human experience, and support you in finding your own inner knowing.

I welcome the chance to journey with you toward greater self-awareness, creativity, and connection in your life.

{At this time, I am offering telehealth sessions only.}

“Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced as birdwings.”

ABOUT MY APPROACH

Stacy800x600.jpg

For most of my life I have been seeking the connections between peace, relationships, and community. I am passionate about helping you make sense of your struggles, hopes, and strengths, by looking within—to repeated patterns, critical thoughts, and unfinished business; and without—to your identities, relationships, and society.

I hold a master’s degree in counseling psychology from the Pacifica Graduate Institute, which understands mental health from a depth and soul perspective. I am also a certified Hakomi therapist, where the focus is on one’s present-moment embodied experience. Working with me will include periods of mindful reflection, active inquiry, tuning in to body sensations and emotions, and working with the present to understand the influence of the past.

                                                     

Overall, my approach is collaborative and rooted in curiosity and kindness—toward all parts of ourselves—in the interest of aiding you to reach a greater sense of wholeness.

In my practice, I am committed to inclusivity and strive to provide care that meets and acknowledges your needs, especially as related to your experience of race; ethnicity; gender; age; abilities; sexual orientation; size; neurodivergence; national origin/indigenous roots; religious or spiritual beliefs; socioeconomic, relationship, or immigration status; and all identities that are important to you.

be softer with you.

you are a breathing thing.

a home to a life.

About Me

I am a white, bi, cis woman (she/they) married to a Filipino cis man, mother of two kids, and a LGBTQIA-affirmative and neurodiversity-affirmative therapist. I live and work on the traditional land of the Duwamish People past and present, and honor—with gratitude and reparations—the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe.

I hold a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy, Clinical Counseling, and Depth Psychology, and I am certified by the Seattle Hakomi Education Network as a therapist and teacher in Hakomi therapy. I have further personal and professional work in Internal Family Systems (IFS), nonviolent communication, attachment/development (The Neufeld Institute), Buddhist meditation (Insight/Theravadan tradition), Somatic Abolitionism with Resmaa Menakem, and in unpacking whiteness/white-bodied ancestral healing with the Liberation Academy and others. My undergraduate degree is in cultural anthropology with an emphasis on gender studies and my previous work in the world was in book publishing and writing and editing. 

 
 

SERVICES

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

I see individual adults (18+) who are experiencing anxiety, depression, self-criticism, feelings of overwhelm, and oppressive social systems, and who are interested in developing a more fulfilling and powerful relationship with themselves and others, from the inside out. I use reflective listening and mindful, embodied inquiry as well as provide skill-building and information to help you find the answers you seek.

SOCIAL JUSTICE

Therapy can be deeply personal and interior work, but in my practice, this is never at the expense of ignoring unjust social systems. I am committed to examining and dismantling white supremacy and racism in myself and my communities; am open and accountable to the impact of race, gender, class, and other identities in our work together; and give 3% of my yearly profit to The WA Therapy Fund, Trans Lifeline, and Holistic Resistance.

PARENTING SUPPORT

If you are a new or struggling parent, or are facing a transition in your parenting, I am passionate about helping you find balance so you can be the parent you want to be. Using a combination of inner work and information about attachment and development, we will work to understand your own early experiences and implicit beliefs, creating more freedom for you and providing you with tools to build a strong and warm relationship with your child(ren).
