I am a board certified Family Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and Family Nurse Practitioner. I am licensed to treat clients of all ages, and have trained in EMDR in children and adults. I have 20 years of experience in nursing which allows me to consider mind-body factors that which contribute to mental health and physical disorders. I treat most disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, psychosis. I develop an integrative treatment plan, using medications, when appropriate, and therapy to help clients achieve the highest level of wellness possible.

I have special interests in treating chronic pain and somatic disorders (those physical symptoms that the medical doctor cannot find a cause for) with psychotherapy techniques. I use Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy to assist in remodeling the nervous system to improve symptoms; a new solution for an old problem.

We accept most Blue Cross/Blue Shield Plans, including Regence and Premera, as well as First Choice, Aetna, and Group Health. I can provide a treatment summary for submission to your insurance company for out of network coverage for other insurance companies.
