Individuals, Couples & Families
Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA)
Whether individual or marriage counseling, I have a passion for seeing people heal from past emotional wounds, solve current emotional and relationship problems, and recover from dysfunctional patterns and addictions. The goal is to enjoy life in its fullness. Good therapy starts with the development of a trusting relationship with the therapist and an exploration of the problem that has brought the client to therapy. From that point, the client and therapist can work together to determine what is needed for growth and more satisfying and meaning-filled living.
I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Whitworth College (Spokane, WA) and a Masters of Arts in Counseling from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology (Seattle, WA). In addition to working at Restoration Counseling, I have worked as a counselor with Institute for Family Development, Cannon Hill Home for Boys, and Whatcom County Fire Department/Support Officers. Since 1999, I have been working as a full-time pastor where my duties include pastoral counseling.
