I am a Pacific Northwest native who has lived in this area for most of my life. In college, my favorite classes and volunteer activities focused on health and psychology, which I pursued through graduate school and to a license as a professional counselor. Even well after two decades in the field, I remain dedicated to and engaged in my job. I feel privileged to hear the stories, goals and challenges of my clients and to support them in their quest for enhanced mental health.
Mental health therapy can look as different as the people seeking help for their concerns. While my work is guided by many years of learning and experience, I keep up with the latest mental health research. I believe therapy is only one of many ways people meet their challenges. Circumstances, beliefs, history, biology, destiny, connections, personality and habits all play a role in who people are and in how they handle what comes into their lives. I help clients learn how to access and develop their internal and external resources in ways that enable them to meet their current challenges while also gaining skills for future use. In addition to a range of techniques that mostly involve talking, I am trained in a variety of experiential techniques. I am certified by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) for biofeedback and by the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) for clinical hypnosis.
Thriving is a mix of meaningful work, connections with family and friends and a good dose of fun. I enjoy traveling, hiking, yoga, kayaking, walking, reading, animals, gardening and just hanging out.
