About me

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Washington state with over 13 years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I have worked with individuals with a wide range of concerns including ADHD, opioid addiction, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and career challenges. I have also assisted many people who have experienced physical and emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating individuals with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My training, life experience, and insight offer clients a unique opportunity to transcend current problems in the service of their own growth.

You can create change in your life and overcome difficult and challenging situations. Remember, seeking counseling is not a sign of weakness, but one of true courage. Counseling can empower you to thrive, not just survive. I will be here to support you on your journey.

I look forward to working with you!
