Mental Health counseling
20+ years counseling experience
research-proven methods in a relaxed, comfortable manner.
My 20+ years of counseling knowledge and experience enables me to understand how to offer research proven, individualized therapeutic care in a manner that is supportive and nurturing for you. I specialize in treating trauma, stress, and anxiety, but also have years of education and experience in treating depression, borderline, relationship issues, childhood neglect, anger issues, narcissist abuse, and I am currently studying dissociation issues. I provide an accepting, and neutral environment enabling you to feel safe to work on what you need to so you can have a full, happy, and satisfying life.
My goal is to help you feel comfortable, heard, understood and valued while we work together to help you overcome your struggles, heal from any pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. You will set the goals you want to work on, and we will focus on those.
Telehealth counseling has been proven to be as effective as in person visits, and much more convenient. Imagine seeing your counselor from your computer in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Can't find time in your busy schedule? You can do a session on your phone during your lunch hour. Imagine - all that help without the need to travel anywhere.
Please be aware that my counselor license is in Washington state - which means that you must be physically located in Washington state at the time of our session.

For your safety and best practices, my counseling uses guidelines of Trauma Informed Care.
" Trauma-Informed Care understands and considers the pervasive nature of trauma and promotes environments of healing and recovery rather than practices and services that may inadvertently re-traumatize ."
