Life does not always turn out how we had hoped it would. As human beings, we are prone to hurt, betrayal, sadness, and loss.
Therapy is a place to explore the particular story of your life and how your journey has impacted the person you are today.
Whether you find yourself in crisis, needing a place to discuss specific challenges, or hoping for more meaning and purpose, it is courageous to take the step to enter into therapy and to give yourself space to slow down and reflect. I believe we experience rest and fulfillment through genuine connection and this is where healing and transformation occurs.
I am passionate about helping people move from a life ruled by fear, unhappiness, and anxiety to a life of authenticity and freedom.
Areas of Focus
Primarily, I work from the Object Relations, Psychodynamic, and Relational perspectives. Essentially, during our time together, we will be exploring these particular areas: Family of Origin, Personal Beliefs, and Styles of Relating. We will pay particular attention to how your mind, body and spirit are affected in these three areas.
Education & Experience
I received my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Taylor University and completed my Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in Seattle, WA. I have experience working with adolescents and families with educational and behavioral challenges, women in transitional phases of pregnancy and motherhood, and men and women with relationship problems and issues of addiction. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA) in the state of Washington and served on the Educational Committee at the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study (NWAPS).
