Every person deserves to experience love and safety. As a therapist, I consider it an honor to walk along side each person in his or her unique journey, helping individuals find healing and peace. My intent is to provide you with a safe place to share your story and to help you develop and achieve your goals. My role as a therapist is shaped by my Christian faith, my identity as a wife, mother, daughter, adoptee, and personal experiences. I have 16 years of professional experience working with children and families.
My theoretical orientation includes filial and client-directed play therapy, trauma-informed therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, family and relational therapy, family systems theory, and solution-focused therapy. This eclectic mix allows me the flexibility to use the approach that best meets needs of each individual client.
Education and Clinical Experience
M.A., Social Work, Roberts Wesleyan, Rochester, NY
B.A., Sociology, Whitworth University, Spokane, WA
I specialize in counseling children, adolescents, adults, and families who are struggling with foster care, adoption, and trauma-related issues. I have had other professional experience working in domestic and international adoptions, adoption searches, school social work, and case managements.
I love spending time with family and friends. It is within relationships that life takes on meaning. I find rest in the beauty of God’s creation and being out in it. I enjoy reading, good chocolate, and learning from others.
