In addition to private practice, I am a trauma recovery counselor for a non-profit organization in the city of Seattle. I have a passion for working with women who are starting over in life, coming out of addiction, abuse, and homelessness; I have had the privilege of working with and learning from incredible women through this unique opportunity.
I received both my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and my Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Northwest University in Kirkland Washington. I am a licensed Mental Health Counseling Associate in the state of Washington.
My journey as a parent of a child with special needs and learning differences has fueled my desire to provide a safe space for parents to tell their stories, find connection, and be received with empathy and compassion. Outside of my work as a counselor, I am the mother of three adult children and a grandma to two little ones. I enjoy cooking, music, creativity, and spending time with family and dear friends.
