Professional statement

Genevieve has experience working with minority communities including working with women, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ clients. Minority groups, and couples, particularly those at the intersections of gender, race, and sexual orientation, are often underrepresented in fields of work such as business, tech, and entrepreneurship. She believes therapy can and should be a safe and non-judgmental space that empowers individuals to be able to push their own limits and views of themselves, in all aspects of their personal and professional lives. Being able to embrace oneself and each other is one of the strongest things a person can learn to do.

Women, people of color, and queer and trans people are often told by society that they don’t fit it, and are often overlooked in professional settings-especially industries such as business, tech, law, and medical-just to name a few. Genevieve believes you can embrace yourself and push yourself without having to succumb to society's views of your assigned roles, in your professional life, and within your relationships. In addition to working with individuals, Genevieve's work has also focused on couples counseling with interracial couples, helping couples to consider viewpoints outside of the White perspective, dissecting barriers and increasing understanding and connection.

Genevieve believes until we learn to actually love everything about ourselves, especially the parts of us other people have said we should change, we’re susceptible to everything. Once you love everything about yourself, nothing can hurt you. She is here to help you through that journey, and teach you how to embrace your own inner strength, and overcome any barrier professionally, or personally, that you're facing.


Message to clients

Life and relationships can be a roller-coaster of emotions, events, and life transitions that seem never ending. As a therapist, I offer my clients a therapeutic environment that is safe, kind, welcoming, and free of judgment. I treat couples and adult individuals who are motivated, open-minded and committed to their own personal growth, and learning how to overcome obstacles they face. I customize my therapeutic approach to each client I work with, and I don't believe in one size fits all, form of therapy. In addition to my psychotherapy work, I have been an entrepreneur for over 20 years, and co-founded, and individually founded multiple companies since the early 2000's. I am in the process of completing my MBA with a concentration in Finance, and believe in offering any and all mentorship and coaching that may be beneficial to my therapy clients.

I was born and raised in the East Bay of northern California, but spent years traveling up and down the state with my work. After spending time in the Pacific Northwest decided to relocate to the state in 2022. Not only do I love the weather and incredible beauty of WA state, but I hope to use and offer my gained experiences from living in different parts of the west coast to help identify with clients and any transitions they may be considering themselves.
