About My Clients

The clients I feel I am able to support, are clients who are open to both processing during session, and want practical skills they can utilize outside of session. I connect with people who prefer a casual atmosphere to their sessions, are ready to be vulnerable, and are open to me asking questions and examining their current stressors. I ask clients to look at the whole picture, and challenge stories that don't support their reality. I want to support generational cycle breakers.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in WA state, with an inactive license in CA state. I have worked in community based settings (hospices, hospitals, school systems) as well as in non-traditional settings (client's homes, Adult Living Facilities). My predominant experience is in grief and loss, including anticipatory grief and Complicated grief. I visualize grief and loss as an umbrella which covers all of us. We will all lose someone we love, someplace we call home, something that has been important to us. I welcome those who wish to find a safe space to acknowledge sadness, relief, comfort and distress about their change. Additionally I have experience with anxiety, depression, first responders, and some parent coaching. I utilize several different methods of therapy, such as ACT, CBT, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness and more. Each year I volunteer with Camp Erin, a part of the Eluna Network, providing kids a healing experience after grief.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Relationships, feeling connected with others and finding our community is a key factor in happiness and meaningful lives. I honor family and "framily." Our connection and comfort with each other in session is key to making change. I hope to provide a safe space to discuss what changes and challenges or stressors are making an impact on your life. Perhaps you have made changes to your life that allow you to grow and develop into more of the person you have always known to be inside. With these changes new stressors may appear. It is important that your story and experience guide you to feel empowered to live your life. We can explore this together by tapping into your strengths, deciding what you want to change, and exploring what you hope your future will look like.
