I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Washington (LH 60610367) with over 12 years of experience.
I love working with people.
My passion is seeing people set free from the wounds of their past and to find freedom and joy for their future. I have a strong Christian faith, and truly believe that healing is possible for all people.
Before becoming a counselor, I was a special education teacher for six years. I have always enjoyed helping, supporting, and encouraging people. In 2003, I returned to school to receive my counseling degree from The Seattle School.
One of the gifts I received from my graduate experience was my need to do my own healing work. I learned I cannot take a client where I am not willing to go. This brought about a transformation in my life and is, in part, what I bring to my clients.
I can believe for the healing of others because I have received healing myself.
During my 12 years of experience I have worked in a variety of settings. These include working at a mental health clinic, working at Northwest University and working in private practice.
