I am spiritual. The following Buddhist principles have influenced who I am as a person, and will influence how I show up to our collaborative sessions: compassion, empathy, universal connectedness and karma, and attachment (as a principal cause of suffering).
I believe in serving my community, which I do as a volunteer King County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) and volunteer Mediator (Practicum Student) through the Volunteers of America Western Washington Dispute Resolution Center.
I am naturally empathic, playful, and nurturing. I adore ALL animals, and can proudly say that I have loved more dogs than humans in my lifetime :). And finally, I am multi-faceted. Some days I feel like a hot mess, while other days, I feel so "put together" I could conquer the world. The truth lies somewhere in the middle, and I'm ok with that. I hope you are too.
