Prior to becoming a mental health counselor, I enjoyed a thoroughly satisfying career spanning 25 years as a social worker. Due to my strong desire to broaden my helping skills, I received my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the accredited program at Antioch University and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in WA. My demeanor is personable and nonjudgemental and I provide a supportive space with warmth, humor (yes humor), and encouragement. I view successful therapy as an experience where your strengths and values are supported while you navigate toward your chosen life direction. As part of my integrative approach, I use a combination of different techniques and model a variety of skills to help balance the nervous system, relieve negative feelings, and enhance perspective.
