Therapeutic Approach

I am an attachment and trauma trained therapist and approach my work from this perspective. I hold high regard for one’s life experiences, individual perspectives and the beliefs and feelings that have resulted from these experiences. This is the foundation of my work.

Education and Experience

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who holds 23 years’ experience as a clinician. My experience has included working in both public and private behavioral health settings, school settings, and working closely with Community agencies, and The Department of Children, Youth, and Families, in the Spokane, Washington and Coeur ‘D Alene Idaho areas.  I have worked as a clinician, consultant, and Program Director in the areas of traumatization, grief and loss, Circle of Security Parenting, Foster Care and Adoption, Trauma and Stress Related Disorders, and currently hold a CPA license to provide Adoption Home Studies with The Department of Licensing in the Spokane Washington area. In addition, I am licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in both Washington and Oregon.
