Individuals, Couples & Families
Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
It is my intention to enter our relationship from the common ground of humanity. I believe that regardless of life-position, religious preference, gender or race, we all desire to move forward toward health and wellness. Through integrity, positive personal regard and compassion, I hope to facilitate a trustworthy relationship with you as we discover ways to have deeper, authentic and more meaningful communication, relationship with self and relationships with others.
My theoretical foundation is based in Family Systems theory which includes extensive study and practice in Cognitive Behavioral, Family of Origin, Structural, Strategic, Narrative, Solution Focused, and MRI Brief therapies.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from Western Washington University, with an emphasis in Psychology, Human Services and a concentration in Family and Youth Advocacy. I also hold a Masters degree in Applied Behavioral Science form Bastyr University with specialized education in Family Systems Counseling from the Leadership Institute of Seattle.
I have been a registered counselor with the State of Washington since 2002, and have over 20 years of experience helping individuals from childhood to adulthood, couples, families and groups.
I am a Christian who loves God, life and others. I am happily married with children and grandchildren whom I love to play with! I enjoy singing and writing music and poetry. I also enjoy horseback riding, holding babies and laughing whenever possible. I look forward to celebrating with you as you come to a new-found respect for yourself and the value of your being.
