I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and received my MS in Psychology from Western Washington University in 2000. I have training in the areas of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Existential-Phenomenological Therapy and Lifespan Integration Therapy. I maintain a clinical practice serving mostly young adults and adolescents.  I have volunteered with Camp Willie and Our Treehouse, programs that support children and families who have experienced a death.  I have worked in the mental health field for over fifteen years.

I enjoy the opportunity to assist young adults and adolescents who are needing treatment for: 

  • Depression/mood problems
  • Anxiety and trauma
  • Eating/body disturbances
  • Self-harm and Suicidality
  • Adjustment and interpersonal problems
  • Young adult conflicts
  • Coping with issues of terminal illness
  • Grief and loss
  • Anxiety, anger and depression
  • Chronic medical illnesses (HIV/AIDS, cancer, and renal failure)

I like to work with clients from a strength-based perspective and believe that individuals have the knowledge and ability to help themselves with the collaboration and understanding of another individual. My intent is to provide a respectful and holistic relationship-based approach to therapy.

I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends, enjoying the outdoors with activities such as hiking, skiing, running, biking, backpacking and being out in the fresh air.
