A Licensed Professional Here to Guide You
In early 2019, I opened the doors to my practice to patients in the greater Seattle area, after over 10 years in various community mental health settings . Like many, in 2020 I grew to offer state wide services with the help of secure, HIPAA compliant, telehealth platforms, offering clients a wide range of counseling services to help them through life’s challenges and most trying times.
My professional background includes working in various inpatient, outpatient, and supported living settings. In my clinical work I enjoy working with clients with a wide range of challenges including trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction, and codependency since 2011. I have my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Simmons University as well as a Master’s Certificate in Addiction Studies from Eastern Washington University.
MSW, LICSW, SUDP
My professional background includes working in various inpatient, outpatient, and supported living settings where I conduct assessments, create treatment plans with interdisciplinary teams, provide resources and support patients and their families through decision making, crisis, conflicts, grief and loss issues. My experience as a social worker has equipped me to work with individuals with a wide range of challenges including trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction, life transitions and codependency. Although I do not treat active addiction in private practice, I still welcome those in recovery seeking additional support.
I earned my Masters in Social Work from Simmons University, focusing on Mental Health and Addiction. After continuing to work in the field I then earned my Masters in Addiction Studies from Eastern Washington University so I was able to continue to engage in the intersectionalities of addiction and trauma; really striving to meet each client where they're at. I've found, even if we don't struggle with text book addiction, we all have our own addictions that are worth exploring.
First and foremost, my therapeutic approach is non-judgmental with the goal of building a trusting relationship. Let's face it, therapy is kind of weird, I look forward to meeting you, earning your trust, and working together to create a space where you feel safe enough to explore, grow, and heal.
