About me

I've been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in WA state since 2014, and have been working in mental health counseling and academic counseling/advising since 2009. I specialize in helping clients with anxiety and mood disorders, and have a lot of experience working with young adults and the college population. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes courage; welcome!

I'm a big introvert and a big nerd. My style is pretty laid-back and relaxed; in fact, I would love to teach you some relaxation skills! People describe me as calm and a good listener. I like reading, gardening, walking, iced lattes, and playing with my kiddos.

She listens to me and offers options on what to do. I trust her and like how she creates options for me to try to overcome my problems and help me look at different angles
