I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington with over 17 years of professional work experience. My education includes a Masters of Arts (M.A.) degree in Counseling from Western Seminary (Portland,OR 1999). I have done counseling in social service agencies and private practice.
In addition to this counseling platform, I am employed as a Program Consultant with the WA Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF). If you have an open CPS case or you are an active foster parent with DCYF, unfortunately I would not be able to serve you as it would be a conflict of interest.
I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, transitions, relationship issues, family conflict, & parenting issues. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
Additional areas of focus: Intimacy-related issues, Career difficulties, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, Communication Problems, Divorce and Separation, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Isolation / Loneliness, Jealousy, Life Purpose, Men's Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy
