I am a psychotherapist in private practice based in Gig Harbor, Washington. I hold a Masters of Psychology Degree from Seattle University. I received my BA in Religious Studies from Kenyon College. My experience includes research at the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and clinical work at Harborview Outpatient Mental Health and Addictions.
I work with individuals, couples and families on various challenging issues. I have a specialty in addiction work; I am a licensed Substance Use Disorders Professional aka SUDP (formerly known as a Chemical Dependency Counselor or CDP) in addition to being a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I enjoy working with families of addicts/alcoholics, and individuals who who are clean and sober. I also work with people on issues of depression, anxiety, stress, codependency, women’s issues (including pregnancy, postpartum and parenting young children), work/life balance, life changes, and spirituality.
I enjoy my work as a therapist, it is a pleasure to assist my clients on their journey to achieve peace and satisfaction in life. Day to day life today can be quite a task, but it is a gift when we learn to change our perspective and let go of that which is no longer serving us.
