I received my Masterʼs Degree from Pacific Lutheran University Marriage and Family Therapy program in 1998. And I have been practicing therapy ever since. I cannot imagine having a dif- ferent career because being a therapist is “in my bones”. Practicing therapy feels completely authentic to how I naturally think, see the world, experience and observe emotions in myself and others, and feel empathy and compassion when witnessing anotherʼs pain and struggles.
In 2015, I received my certification from the Couples Institute in Menlo Park California, for completing their internationally-respected training in the The Developmental Model for Couples. (www.couplesinstitute.com) This training taught me a core set of skills and principles I use with all of my clients. These skills and core principles allow me to work most effectively with even the most extremely distressed and disheartened couples.
20 years of experience and a personality that is naturally compassionate, empathetic and intuitive. I have been an observer, listener and encourager of others all of my life in many different roles: daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother and therapist.
