my philosophy

I believe counseling is a collaborative, client-driven process that allows individuals to identify strengths and build upon them for positive life change.  I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) as my primary counseling approach.  My services are offered entirely via tele-health so you can experience all the benefits of the counseling process from the comfort of your home.

 

Throughout the therapeutic process I encourage the inclusion of natural supports to assist those I'm working with achieve wellness. I believe those I work with have the power to attain their goals and live healthier lives through evidence-based goal-directed clinical work.

 

I hold a Masters of Education (M. Ed.) in Counseling Psychology from Washington State University and have attained my Washington State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) certification and my Oregon State Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) certification. I am a Washington State Certified Child Mental Health Specialist (CMHS) as well as a Washington State Certified Mental Health Professional (MHP).  I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I am a member of EMDR International, EMDR certified, and a Consultant in Training under the supervision of Dr. Andrew Leeds.
