I specialize in Bereavement, Stress Reduction, and Trauma Recovery.
The majority of insurance companies I accept cover teletherapy. At times in our lives we may find that the pain of events is seemingly more than one can handle, and life questions are too great. During these passages, healing and stress reduction can be aided through a therapeutic alliance with a mental health counselor. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I listen to, and witness your story. I provide a safe and confidential environment to explore those issues which most challenge you. It is an honor for me to provide counseling services for those seeking healing and an increase in the quality of their lives.

I can offer a safe place to discuss, explore, and create solutions for whatever difficulty you're experiencing. ​ Some Sex Therapy is short term (1-6 months) and often involves sexual education & permission to experience pleasure. Most Sex Therapy requires longer term therapy (1-2 years) because of relational dynamics, unhealthy beliefs about sexuality, anxiety, attachment issues from childhood, unresolved grief, trauma recovery, learning to identify & convey your sexual needs/wants.

If you are having difficulty coping with the loss of a loved one; have experienced sexual or other types of abuse; if you feel sad, anxious or worried most of the time; if you are having conflict in a personal, marital or family relationship; if you want to improve your parenting skills, or just want to learn how to manage stressful living, I can help you.
Serving as a minister and earning a PhD in Counseling Psychology equipped me to care for people in crises. Working with vulnerable children and their families or caregivers, also proved to be a valuable foundation for clinical care. In a medical academic setting, training residents in the use of spirituality and psychology as they cared for their patients, deepened my own understanding of just how complex clinical issues can become. This also increased my understanding of the level of stress healthcare providers and victims themselves experience during illness. This is especially relevant in the present COVID-19 environment.

My passion is to help men and women heal from painful experiences, including abuse, domestic violence, divorce, relational issues, and loneliness. I provide my clients with a safe and comforting space to process their pain. Together, we will work to understand the often unexplainable symptoms of grief, trauma, and loss and to identify those places in their lives where they feel burdened or overwhelmed. It is easier to identify trauma and abuse in others than in ourselves, especially when we are so used to putting others' needs before our own. I want every client to know they are precious, even in their brokenness..

"Bad" habits and issues aren't necessarily bad, especially if they helped you survive in the past. Clearing the way means shifting your relationship with reality and the past.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for an Anacortes grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Anacortes.
