Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to check out my website and explore ways to improve your current situation; whatever that may look like right now. I think finding the right therapist is one major key to successful treatment. I also know that finding the right therapist is hard work. Even if you don't end up working with me, I want to encourage you to put the work in now to find a good fit for you. The work you will do in therapy will be difficult at times. You will benefit from having a strategic teammate. This is your life and it is worth all of this hard work!
Outside of work I enjoy running, hiking and spending time outdoors with my two sons, dog and husband. I'm born and raised in the PNW and can't imagine living anywhere else. I love the water and mountains but could stand a little less rain :)
I became interested in therapy after witnessing people close to me struggle with addiction and mental health symptoms. After experiencing tragedy myself I started in therapy and recognized what an important healing mechanism it is. I started off as a grief and loss therapist through an internship and went on to work directly with adults in areas such as trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety, bipolar, and psychosis.
I believe in meeting the individual where they are and adjusting treatment to meet specific, unique needs. I think therapy works because it gives the consumer a safe, private space to shine light on the darkness that is taking over. I am privileged to walk along side of people on their journeys and I hope you are willing to give me a chance to walk alongside you.
