My therapeutic approach is person-centered, meaning that treatment is based on individual and family needs.
People see counselors for many different reasons. Some folks have mental health struggles such as anxiety or depression and therefore come to therapy for treatment and help. Others come to therapy for other life problems such as relationship problems, stressful work environments, worries about their future or their kids, struggles with their faith and spirituality, or grief and loss, etc. Counseling is an investment in the betterment of your life.

I worked on a variety of issues including Domestic Violence, Depression, Adolescence issues, Relationship counseling, Family counseling and more.
Life is hard; no one said it would be easy. Nothing that has value comes easily. It seems the things that can bring us lasting joy are the things we have to work to achieve. We are all unique in history. Where we come from, which family, which culture, impacted who we are and who we will or have become. Yet, all of us are the same in that we need human interaction. We come into this world seeking others, touch, interaction. We are neither meant to be or have to be completely alone. *(I am an approved WA State Supervisor and am currently taking on LMHCA supervisees).

I utilize a variety of techniques from Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
Emotions and significant life stressors can leave a person feeling stuck or helpless. Finding a safe place to process emotions and address questions of shame, normalcy, and acceptance can be challenging. Without being able to process emotions and trauma, we can get stuck and the emotions stored in our bodies. Processing emotions not only provides mental relief, but can also transform a person’s connectedness to their bodies and relieve some physical manifestations of stressors. I hope to help people find hope which allows space for life to be messy and things to still be okay.
