I help people with difficult past learn about their brain and how to manage it so they can have a more productive future.
I graduated from Antioch University of Seattle with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of Washington, #MC60939916. I also have a chemical dependency professional trainee certificate. I have two bachelors form the University of South Florida, one is a bachelor of arts in psychology and the other is a bachelor of science in health science with a concentration in substance abuse.
I specialize in trauma and addictions
I really enjoy bringing awareness into sessions, this may include pointing out physical movements you didn’t realize you did, how your younger attachment styles have impacted your present life, and how what is physically happening in your brain or body relates to presenting issues.
I tailor my approach to meet the needs of each client as a unique individual. I work from an experiential model that combines verbal exploration with individualized activities that enhance client strengths and offer new tools along the way. I am committed to helping my clients access the skills they need for their personal goals and growth.
I value the feeling of being understood and having the ability to collaborate on difficult things. I chose to become a therapist so that I can provide these experiences to others. I would be pleased for you to share your story with me and hope to hear from you.
