About me

I am licensed in Washington with 3 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, & parenting issues. 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 seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. I believe that the most important part of counseling is the therapeutic relationship in which trust and respect is built. I look forward to walking with you on your journey.
