Approach
Therapy is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach.  Each client has different needs, beliefs, and goals; therefore, each client responds to a different approach in their healing process.  The therapeutic approach will be designed to meet the individual needs and desired outcome.

My training includes a variety of therapeutic approaches that include:  Client Centered, Gestalt therapy, Cognitive Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocess) to name a few.  My goal is to provide a safe and respectful environment in which clients explore their thoughts and feelings.  Each approach is supportive in nature with the hope that each client may live a more authentic life.  One in which you feel the joy and peace that the Creator wants you to feel.

Education/Experience
I earned my undergrad degree in Psychology at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington.  I received my Master’s degree through Antioch University Seattle.  I chose Antioch as the curriculum offered a broad choice of therapeutic approaches in therapy as well as the diversity with students and faculty.  My one year internship was with Pathways for Women through the YWCA.  At Pathways, I worked with women escaping domestic violence:  We served women and children at the shelter.

I have 11 years’ experience working in the Native American community. I have volunteered my services to “The Soldiers Project” which provides pro bono counseling to military and their families.

In my private practice I work with:  Women, Men, Couples, Teens, Adults, Veterans, and Elders.
