I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LH60089692) in an independent private practice in Issaquah, WA. I enjoy working with adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families in my practice.
With over 20 years experience in agency and hospital settings, and as a graduate of the Adler School of Professional Psychology specializing in the postive and encouraging therapy of Alfred Adler, I currently work with a diverse and broad spectrum of clients. I also specialize in EMDR and hynpotherapy treatment. I also use Cogitive and ACT Therapies in session. Regarding couples counseling, I follow the Gottman Method. I continue to participate in numerous ongoing trainings in order to keep my level of practice at the highest standard.
As an interactive, solution-focused therapist, my therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I will integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to your needs. With compassion and understanding, I will collaboratively work with you to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth that you are committed to accomplishing.
