Education and Experience
I graduated from the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs with a Bachelors in Psychology in December 2015.  During this time, I enjoyed working at an internship with the company AspenPointe.  At this internship, I had the pleasure of learning how to conduct art therapy with military Veterans.  From Colorado, I moved to Oahu, Hawaii and I pursued a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Hawaii Pacific University, where I graduated in August 2016.  My education in Hawaii included a 9-month internship where I worked on a school-based team through Tripler Army Medical Center.  Here I worked with mostly Elementary and Middle school children and their families.  From Hawaii, I returned home to Washington where I accepted a position as a school-based Behavior Technician.  In this position, I was trained in Applied Behavior Analysis and I worked primarily with children diagnosed with Autism and oppositional behaviors.  I am actively licensed with the state of Washington as a Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA).

Personal Interests
I was raised in a military family so I have come to love traveling to new countries and learning about new cultures.  I love being outdoors, whether that be camping in the mountains or laying on the beach.  I also enjoy taking my two dogs, Gunner and Roxy, for walks at night with my husband.  I also love reading a good book when it is raining outside along with a delicious Starbucks coffee.  Because of my military upbringing and having married a military Veteran, I am extremely passionate about helping Veterans coping with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, as well as helping their families.

Accepted Payment
Premera, DSHS, and sliding scale fee for out of pocket payers.
