Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Renton, WA


About My Clients

You don’t need to do it alone! Your struggles with anxiety, depression, and grief and loss can feel confusing, and it can be hard to find your way through the pain. I’m here to support you. You work hard to keep going and deserve a safe environment to heal and find hope. We will work as a team to ensure this happens. My clients are adults seeking to process difficult experiences. They want to build on current skills and seek new skills–to grow and thrive in a challenging world. You can do this!

My Background and Approach

My professional background includes private practice and community mental health therapy. I have a broad range of training and experiences in therapies and integrate relevant concepts and skills into our sessions. I love to learn and am committed to ongoing education so that I can bring you the newest science and skill building techniques. My most recent educational focus is on grief and loss, the neurobiology of trauma, and mindfulness. My master’s degree in counseling psychology is from City University and my undergraduate degree in education from Seattle University. I am a member of Washington Mental Health Counselor’s Association. I believe deeply in the healing power of nature and draw strength from the beauty of the Northwest to offer you a nurturing environment. Volunteering with Seattle King County Clinic, Pike Market Food Bank, and, A.R.I.S.E. Interfaith Shelter creates meaning in my life and allows me to offer you an experienced, diverse perspective.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe you are the expert on your life story. My role as therapist is to offer you my expertise, insights, compassion, and empathy so you can realize your inner strengths. You may feel vulnerable, explore strong feelings, share traumatic experiences, and express difficult thoughts during therapy. Having someone witness your pain and validate your unique experiences creates a safe, natural environment for healing. We will collaboratively investigate the sources of your depression and anxiety to identify the skills you’ve used to protect yourself and to learn new skills that work better. You can learn to identify and celebrate your successes. I’ll help you find your truth and be with you as you walk through the fire to heal.
