I am a Washington State licensed mental health counselor (#LH60832500) and a certified nutritionist (#NU60682387). I hold degrees from Stanford University (BA, Human Biology), Yale University (MBA), and Bastyr University (dual Master’s degrees in Clinical Health Psychology and Nutrition).
Prior to starting Sarana Counseling PLLC, I was a psychotherapist at Sound Mindfulness Group and before that provided individual counseling at Providence Hospice of Seattle to caregivers and to those at end-of-life. Counseling is actually my third career incarnation born out of my realization that accompanying others who are on a challenging path is deeply rewarding. I too have faced difficulties and painful losses in my life; I know first-hand just how hard it can be. But I also know that challenging times, with sufficient support and fellow travelers, can eventually lead to important transformation.
