I have facilitated domestic violence groups and anger management classes for men and women for over 15 years.
I am currently closed to new clients. Please see abwcs.com as several of my colleagues have openings. I provide telehealth and in-person counseling services. I can provide counseling to any Washington or Idaho State residents. Since 1994, I've helped clients work through trauma, learn about codependency and healthy boundaries, address anxiety, navigate challenging transitions, and improve communication in their relationships. Other clinicians would be better suited to help address chronic depression. I support and challenge clients to take needed action in order to improve the quality of their lives and relationships.

My ideal client is someone who is ready to engage in reclaiming their personal power. Therapy is just as much about unlearning, as it is learning. I enjoy working with folks who have a history of "people pleasing" and who have experienced emotional abuse . In particular I enjoy working with those who have experienced narcissistic abuse , and are looking to come back into contact with feeling grounded in their own reality again.

I have experience providing LGBTQ-affirming services, as well as working with survivors of sexual assault, abuse , medical trauma, and spiritual trauma.
Experiencing trauma, loss, or upheaval is destabilizing and isolating. It can erode the relationships we value the most while making us call into question our sense of identity. Even if we avoid consciously thinking about it, the imprint of our past can wreak havoc on our physical health, our nervous system, and our present experience. The healing process asks us tune into our intuition and our bodies so that we can notice which parts of ourselves most need our attention and care. I can offer tools and support for those seeking to regain a sense of safety and connection with themselves, others, and the world around them.

My approach to counseling is personalized and collaborative, and is based in Relational-Cultural Theory which takes into account the effects of abuse , discrimination and marginalization on mental health. I believe that all humans have the tendency to grow, heal, and develop their full potential. I work to gain an accurate, accepting, understanding of each client’s reality so that the therapeutic relationship provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment to explore his or her thoughts and feelings about difficult life issues, with the goal of resolving issues, gaining self-acceptance and building relationships.

Many are unable to vocalize their emotional state as a result of trauma, neglect or abuse .
I specialize in couples, children, teens and individuals. I believe that everyone can reach an optimum state of health, counseling helps individuals and families reach healthy functioning in their relationships with others. I employ an integrative approach with a strong reliance on cognitive-behavioral aspects, emotion focused therapy, solution focused therapy, as well as some Jungian methods, such as sand tray therapy, and child centered play therapy. Sand Tray Therapy is a form of expressive therapy. This non-verbal method of therapy is often used with children, but can be applied to adults, teens, couples, families as well.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
