I believe the possibility of meaningful change toward vibrant living is the hope of being human and that every person has the capacity for resilience, strength and growth.

It is my goal to create a warm and compassionate space while walking alongside others as they work toward healing, balance, and abundant living. I’m passionate about meeting individuals where they are and working with clients from diverse backgrounds­­­-valuing the uniqueness of each person’s story.

I’m honored to work with individuals, adolescents, couples, and families. My areas of focus include relationship building, family dynamics, life transition, unexpected challenges, spiritual issues, grief and loss. My approach is systemic and holistic with an emphasis on a person-centered orientation and use structural, family systems, and emotion-focused lenses.

My husband and I have five wonderful adult children who are well on their way to pursuing their dreams and living full lives. I look forward to the times when we all get together. I’m actively involved in my church and community. I love to travel, enjoy finding out of the way antique stores and coffee shops, and my peaceful place is by the ocean.

I’m in the process of completing my Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Family Science from Concordia University, St. Paul, Minnesota. I am a Certified Family Life Educator (#1180139), a member of National Counsel of Family Relations and a member of the American Counseling Association. I am supervised by Dr. Bart Fowler, M.A., Psy.D., a licensed psychologist in Washington (PY60153263).
