My Philosophy:

One of the most important things in life are relationships, not only with others but with ourselves. These relationships can often be some of the most rewarding, and also difficult, aspects of life. The joy and comfort they bring feels satisfying and enhances our life. The challenges they present can also create feelings of overwhelm and dissatisfaction. I assist clients in identifying the changes which need to be made within themselves and/or within their relationships so that they can experience the level of satisfaction that they are seeking.

Who Am I:

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 different 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.
