I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington. I received a Master of Science degree in Counseling, Educational and Developmental Psychology from Eastern Washington University in 2001. I specialize in treating individuals with Anxiety, Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related disorders. I am certified provider of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), one of the most widely researched treatments for a variety of difficulties individuals may be experiencing. This therapy focuses on identifying and changing unhelpful or irrational beliefs in order to feel better and live a fulfilling life. I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher. Yoga has been shown to boost confidence and mood, decrease anxiety and depression, increase a person’s ability to manage their emotions, and to be an effective supplementary treatment for many mental health disorders. Some aspects of yoga you may find helpful are mindfulness and breathing techniques. The treatment I provide takes a mind-body approach, using evidence-based practices including CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and even physical Yoga (if you're interested), to help individuals heal and build resilience.
I hold the following specializations and/or certifications in addition to my counseling license:
• Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT)
• Certified Provider of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
• Mental Health Professional
• Certified in Sports and Fitness Psychology
