I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor licensed in Washington. I was drawn to helping professions for most of my life. Prior to moving into therapy, I worked as an intensive case manager for about  eight years. In that time, I was providing a multitude of services for people greatly impacted by mental health, substance, housing, and other complicating factors. I loved working with people and realized this is what I wanted to do. I worked in a inpatient hospital for a while to gain another type of perspective to what mental health looks like for clients personally and systemically. This is what drew me to counseling. Providing an emotionally safe space for others to process and explore their needs, wants, and sense of self.

My approach to therapy involves a holistic and integrative approach. I feel that people are complex and dynamic, and they need dynamic solutions. Change happens when one can identify what changes and the reason for taking action. My collaborative approach sets guideposts and provides tools to aid in the change process. WE will work together to empower you in healing past wounds and  in growing in to your best life.

I prefer to work with adults and couples, I can work with old adolescents as well. My areas of intervention are trauma, anxiety, shame and guilt, and life transitions. I have  training in EMDR Therapy, and DBT therapy and integrate these evidenced based processes to a humanistic and client focused a approach.

I learned to play tennis at 36 and never got better, but I love playing it. It is fun to learn a new sport at a relatively older age and use my body in different ways. Outside of that I have plenty of plants to care for at home and am generally planning a trip somewhere. I live with my two kitties and my partner and am admittedly quite the home body.
