Every person deserves to experience love and safety. As a therapist, I consider it an honor to walk alongside others in their unique journey to find healing and peace. My goal is to provide you with a safe place to share your story, and to help you develop and achieve your goals. My role as a therapist is shaped by my Christian faith, life experiences, and my identity as a daughter, wife, mother, and adoptee. I have 12 years of professional experience working with children and families.

 I specialize in trauma-informed therapy for children, adolescents, adults and families. In my work with pre- and post-adoptive children and their caregivers, the PATCH program provides important education and support for building attachment, developing emotional regulation skills, and gaining competencies. I enjoy working with adult adoptees, exploring issues of identity and loss. I also provide general counseling for anxiety, depression, life transitions, parenting, and other issues.

 My theoretical orientation includes trauma-informed therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, family/marital therapy, play therapy, solution-focused therapy, and relational and systems theory. I hold a master’s degree in Social Work, and am licensed with Washington State as an Associate Independent Clinical Social Worker.

 It is within relationships that life takes on meaning. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, a mix of quiet moments and social gatherings, reading, good chocolate, and learning from others. I find rest in the beauty of God’s creation and being out in it.
