MS, Marriage and Family Therapy

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and am now practicing in Edmonds after several years in Community Mental Health. As a therapist, I feel honored to play a role in an individual's or family's life as they seek to make changes and am inspired by the courage my clients display. My experience includes working with individuals of all ages, families, parents, and children and adolescents. I have helped clients address anxiety, depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, behavioral problems including ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and adjusting to various changes.

 

Outside of my counseling services, I enjoy cooking, reading- especially books on nutrition, the food industry, and parenting, spending time with my family, and walking. I am also the mother of two young kids which keeps me busy!
