Biographical Information

          I have always lived in the Pacific Northwest. I love this region with its diverse landscape, climate, and cultural. I was raised playing sports and was active outdoors which I continue to enjoy both to this day with family and friends.

          I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Pacific Lutheran University in Psychology and Global Studies in Comparative Ethnicities. My academic training along with many cross cultural experiences have provided me with a broad scope of understanding and knowledge of diverse populations.

          For about four years, I worked for a foster care agency before attending Seattle Pacific University where I earned a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy and a certification in Medical Family Therapy. 

          Additionally, I worked at a community mental health clinic serving children and their families as well as treating adult patients at various medical clinics.

Therapeutic Style

          My approach to therapy is to walk alongside clients and help them draw from their strengths. We work together to identify both internal and external resources to accomplish their goals on the journey of growth and/or healing.

          I tailor the course of treatment to each client based on the treatment modalities that are the most beneficial to his or her circumstances. I have an in-depth academic and clinical foundation in Solution Focused Therapy as well as using Narrative Therapy principles. At times I administer various assessments and tools to help inform me and to better serve client needs. As a Marriage and Family Therapist with Medical Family Therapy training, I operate from a systemic and comprehensive perspective. I assess and treat mental health issues while accounting for, and attending to, biopsychosocial-spiritual, contextual, and relational factors which may be impacting clients’ lives.
