We are all designed uniquely and have our own path. Every person that I encounter is shaped by the interwoven threads of mind, body and spirit as well as relationships, work, education, culture, community, and history. As such, I seek to care for the whole person through services that take into account this full range of formative influences. Caring for the whole person also means that I partner with my clients to address unwanted or problematic behaviors while gradually moving deeper to explore root issues that might be hampering growth. I approach counseling from an integrative perspective that expresses biblical truth alongside evidence-based theory and practice. Though I operate from a Christian foundation, I welcome clients from all faith backgrounds, including those with no religious affiliation at all, and I intentionally engage with each person according to their expressed preferences and interests.
I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Washington. I hold dual Master’s degrees in Mental Health and Marriage and Family Therapy from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Exercise Science (with a minor in Psychology) from the University of Southern California. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of therapy settings including medical, educational, athletic, faith-based and clinical. I work with individuals and couples. Additionally, I mentor individuals, facilitates group sessions, and leads public speaking engagements. I have spent 20+ years coming alongside women to help with their unique concerns through life stages. I have training to work in cross-cultural settings and work from approaches that draws on evidence-based modalities such as CBT, EFT, Attachment and Narrative Therapy. As a provider, I am passionate about the well being and growth of every client with whom I work.
