I have been blessed to be married for over 2 decades, have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with my family, church and time outdoors in the Spring and Summertime.
I have worked in the professional social services industry for over 2 decades. I have provided services as a mental health counselor (both in-person and through online/video counseling), social worker, guidance counselor, vocational rehabilitation counselor and adjunct professor of psychology. I have worked in the private sector and for the county, state and federal governments.
I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Central Washington University and a Master's Degree in Counseling from Washington State University. I am licensed by the Washington State Department of Health to independently provide Mental Health Counseling services to the public in Washington state (LMHC). I also am a Board Certified Telemental Health Provider (BC-TMH) via the Center for Credentialing & Education, an affiliate of the National Board of Certified Counselors.
APPROACHES TO TREATMENT
I specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, relationship issues and trauma for adults and couples. I have an eclectic orientation to treatment to include cognitive behavioral counseling, supportive/person-centered therapy and, as a Christian, I am also happy to provide biblical counseling to clients who are interested. As a Board Certified Telemental Health Provider, I exclusively offer counseling to people online in Washington state. You can receive treatment from the comfort of your own home!
