I love to work with parents and families who have children with behavioral issues. It is so hard to be a parent and not have the skills to work with a child with these kinds of issues. I also enjoy working with people in the LGBTQIA+ community, especially if they are struggling with issues of self-worth or internalized oppression. The couples that I most enjoy working with are ethically non-monogamous or members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

You're someone who is looking to find just the right fit in a counselor. Maybe you are experiencing grief, or having difficulty adjusting to life changes. Perhaps you have a general sense of dissatisfaction with life, or have specific things you want to work through. Or, maybe you're feeling trapped by anxiety, or past trauma, and you want to feel a sense of hope; to be seen, heard, and understood. There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy, and the things you may want to work on are important and unique.

I provide counseling based on each client's individuals needs and strengths. Cognitive-Behavioral: Thoughts, feelings and behaviors interact; to change one of these it is often helpful to change one of both of the others. Family Systems Theory: Family members affect each other; to address the needs of one family member, it is often helpful to change interactions within the entire family. Solution focused Therapy: A focus on the solution to, rather than history of, the problem. Narrative Therapy: interactions, concepts, and personal power as tools to improve a person's way of life, rather than focusing on any person.

A favorite quote of mine is "A person's a person, no matter how small" - Dr. Suess. What I take from this is to treat others with humanity and respect, despite age, life difficulties or choices made. I predominantly work with children, adolescents, families and young adults who present with a variety of presenting difficulties. I do enjoy working with adults and couples as well. I have vast experience in working with all populations and am a safe place for all. I approach therapy from a systems perspective, rooted in attachment theory. I believe we are developed out of our experiences and interactions with those in our lives.

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).
