I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Associate. I received my MS degree from Seattle Pacific University in 2014 and a BA in Ministry Leadership from Northwest University in 2012. In 2015 I received my ministerial credentials from the Assemblies of God. I have also had training in Adlerian Theory, in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and am a SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts ) facilitator. During my internship I served children, teens and families at Sound Mental in Redmond, Washington. I desire that my clients can cultivate hope for their future, their relationships and discover their God-given purpose.
I provide therapy from a systems-based approach, which just means that we are all impacted and influenced by those with whom we are in relationship with. These relationships, especially those from our family of origin, can teach us about ourselves and our current relationships.
My Christian beliefs and worldview influences not only my approach to therapy but who I am as an individual. I recognize that we all have different perspectives to faith and I respect each individual’s belief system.
