Dealing with emotional pain alone is exhausting. Struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, and other experiences are difficult enough. To feel isolated and misunderstood by your friends and family makes a bad situation much worse. You do not have to do this alone. You should be proud of yourself for exploring the option of counseling. If you are ready to start taking control of your life today, I would love to support you on the journey.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mackenzi, and I am a licensed mental health counselor associate located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA. I am a firm believer in the idea that we are always writing our story -- each day a new page, a year a chapter. Often, it can feel as though our stories are being written by other forces of nature -- anxiety, stress, depression, oppression, fear. You are the expert of your own life and you are in charge. My primary goal as your therapist is to work with you and/or your family members so that you can regain the power of your own story. You are living your story. I hope to hear from you and learn more about the story you are writing.

In my practice I specialize in working with those who find themselves struggling with:

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
— Winston Churchill


I specialize in the following areas and have a variety of other areas of focus that I work with as well. Click the buttons below to learn more.


Adult Counseling

For any person, wherever they are in life, to be supported in their journey of restoration. Identity does not stop forming, even in adulthood. We are not meant to face these challenges alone.

Teen Counseling

Teenagers are amazing people! In the chaos of discovering who we are, sometimes we need support and a listening ear when facing our problems.

Child Counseling

Children's imagination is one of their biggest assets in this world. Their creativity and curiosity are great sidekicks in the battle to defeat their own bad-guys.
