I am dually licensed in Washington state as a mental health counselor and a behavior analyst, and I have 14 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety & parenting related issues. I have also worked extensively supporting parents and families whose children received an Autism Spectrum Diagnosis, and through this avenue have participated in parent coaching and therapy, skills training and teaching to individuals with autism, and the training of other therapists. I have experience working with children and adolescents and their families in varying environments from inpatient clinical settings to school supports to family counseling. I believe in using Cognitive Behavioral therapies to explore and alleviate presenting concerns by understanding our thought patterns and beliefs and how they impact our behaviors. I strive for client centered therapy and make your goals and desires the focus of our collaboration.I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming the things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am here to help.
