I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington State. I have been licensed since 2013. I have enjoyed my years as a therapist working with all types of age demographics.
I am certified by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT), as a Certified Sex Therapist. If you have questions about sex therapy, click here.
I have invested in the researched based relational counseling model with the Gottman Institute which has helped push my capacity as a therapist to support those in a relationship.
I offer counseling services from a person-centered therapeutic approach started by Carl Rogers. Rodger’s instructions to the therapists was to adhere to three elements: genuineness (realness), acceptance (caring), and empathetic understanding. Practicing over the years, I have found this theory to be a great place for growth and healing for my clients. When I am leaning into Rodger’s elements I see my clients come to life. They know I am not judging. They feel safe to explore their truths because they know I only want the best for them.
Personally, I enjoy time spent with my spouse, children and our many animal friends on our mini-farm. When I am not working, I enjoy being in the yard, taking trips around the Pacific Northwest and the occasional kayak on the sound.
