Authentic living can be difficult. Life's paths often do not warn of the hardships that lay ahead. Building a trusting relationship with you and creating an environment that you can explore your hardships is paramount to me. Whether you are an individual or a couple, I strive to bring to light the problematic behaviors and thought patterns that interfere in your life, in order to help you make choices that promote a more congruent and authentic living experience. Theoretically, I am psychodynamically driven with strong ties to cognitive therapies but use a variety of techniques to meet your needs.

I am a client-centered, strengths-based therapist who brings sincerity and compassion to the process. I gained clinical experience working in Spokane Public Schools, where I developed my passion for working with children and adolescents. I also gained clinical experience working at Whitworth Marriage and Family Therapy Center where I mainly focused on College age individuals. I've discovered working within this age range is most rewarding when I can assist them in creating a healthier future. As a therapist, I am committed to providing a safe, respectful, & empathetic space for all my clients.

You feel stuck, repeating the same patterns no matter how hard you try. And you try - try harder to do better, forgive, heal, and move forward. However, too often you end up right back where you started. It's hard to trust people, and when you do you often end up hurt. During the day, you feel you are in a constant fog and find it difficult to make decisions or meaningful connections. At night, you wish you could flip a switch and turn off your mind so you could sleep. The way you have been coping isn't working, and you feel overwhelmed. You want hope: hope to heal, hope to move forward, hope to feel more in control.

I work with a variety of clients from all walks of life. People attend counseling for many reasons, but most of them stem either from difficulties in relationship with others or with self and from some of the "givens" in life, including: death, isolation, lack of meaning, freedom, and responsibility. Those who seek counseling services want to feel happy, live more in line with how they view their world, and/or get along better in their significant relationships.

My therapeutic approach is to help clients return to stable or normal functioning. I believe in empowering clients and providing individual person-centered care. Also, to facilitate realistic expectations and hope in clients that positive change is possible but does not occur in a linear process of straight-line successes. There will be triumphs and tribulations, progress, and setbacks. I will emphasize a healing process that involves growth, learning from advances as well as setbacks, and staying the course toward restoration and recovery. I will also convey to clients that I will stay the course with them.

Sometimes life gets a little tricky and learning to navigate through it sometimes means asking for help. I enjoy working with people struggling through various things in their life, whether that be just for themselves, for their children or in relationships with others. I've been working in mental health for nearly 14 years and have worked with nearly every population. My passion is working with kids and their parents, but I have worked with everyone from young children to the elderly and have found ways to help them be more successful in managing stressors.

I like to have a conversation. The idea of counseling and being “in therapy” can be overwhelming. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable can seem like too great an undertaking. First is a conversation. We start here to learn which therapeutic approach works best for you. My goal is to help clients identify what is most impacting & affecting their well-being, and help to find correlating themes in stressors that may initially seem unrelated but taxing. Treatment methods and techniques vary depending on the client’s needs & goals. In this way, I can help form a personalized toolbox of skills/resources for clients to turn to as needed.

Making the choice to seek help in overcoming hardships in your life can be one of the scariest and one of the most rewarding actions a person can take in their life. If you find yourself here, you may be considering a journey towards long-lasting and significant change. In each stage of life, there are unique challenges that can impact your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical health. Lack of support, encouragement, or sense of community make these challenges unbearable. My role is to utilize my training to provide unconditional positive regard and safety when overcoming barriers and discovering effective solutions, together.

I work specifically with couples using emotionally focused therapy (EFT). Counselor strategies for couples and marital issues are much different than what a traditional counselor might utilize. I am a systemic couple’s counselor, this means that I see your relationship as my client. EFT is the most empirically validated treatment protocol based on 50 years of research to help couples reconnect and feel fulfilled. EFT can help by focusing on your attachment bond.
