About Me

I inherently believe that you are the experts in your own lives and have the ability and resources to make positive changes. I feel that it is my job as a therapist to illuminate your strengths and to support the growth that you choose. I generally utilize a solution-focused modality that explores what is working in your lives, what you would like to do more of, and then we work collaboratively to identify and address your specific goals. I feel that it is truly an honor to be a part of this dynamic process.

Education & Experience

I began working in the mental health field in 2014 and have practiced in Washington, Oregon, California and Alaska. I did my undergraduate work at the University of Nevada Reno and then completed an MS in Human Services with a Specialization in Marital, Family, and Couples Counseling/Therapy at Capella University. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have served children and adults in private practice and community mental health settings. I also have assisted both teens and adults with alcohol and drug recovery. I have traveled extensively in my life and feel that my experiences help me to understand and meet the needs of my diverse clients. Please note that applications are pending with the insurance companies listed as I have recently switched from a group practice to my own telehealth-only company: Solutions Telehealth Counseling.
