I hold a Masters of Counseling Psychology degree from City University of Seattle and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Washington. I am a Washington State Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA #MC60748025). I have been working in mental health since 2000 in various capacities including providing counseling, mental health assessment, group therapy, psychoeducation, teaching undergraduate psychology students, and creating curriculum for undergraduate psychology courses.
My treatment approach is individually, strength, and behaviorally based. I believe you come to therapy already equipped with inherent skills to help address your areas of concern, my role is to help you identify and access those strengths and skills, gain insight into and address problematic behaviors, and provide education and information to achieve your goals.
I treat children, adolescents, individual adults, couples and families with a wide range of concerns including but not limited to: depression, mood disorders, anxiety, relationship and family issues, trauma, grief and loss, parent/child problems, childhood behavioral issues, infertility issues, adoption and foster care, and mental health issues resulting from chronic medical conditions.
My treatment methods include but are not limited to cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychotherapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, brief solution focused therapy, psychoeducation, play therapy, and family systems therapy. The delivery of these methods is accomplished via individual, couples, family and play therapy. We will maintain an open dialogue throughout your therapy process to ensure the methods and focus of treatment remain aligned to your goals.
