I hope this website provides you with additional information you might need before beginning counseling. I work with adults and teens over 13 and have been told I bring a warm, compassionate presence to my work with clients. I have a special interest in helping individuals with traumatic grief & loss, PTSD, trauma, anxiety and depression, and life transitions. My approach stems from numerous theories including client centered, psychodynamic, IFS and humanistic theories as well as EMDR and restorative retelling methods.
I completed a Master’s Degree Mental Health Counseling in 2004 at Seattle University in Seattle, Washington. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with the states of Washington and Oregon and I'm a certified EMDR practioner by the EMDR International Association, EMDRIA. In addition, I have a background in human resources with a focus on development, interviewing, and career counseling. I also provide tele-mental health counseling to clients within Washington or Oregon states.
When available, client openings are typically late morning to early afternoon appointments only. At this time, my practice is currently full.
