My approach to the counseling relationship draws from a number of empirically supported approaches. Most importantly, the relationship is what ultimately determines positive outcomes. Listening, attunement, and curiosity combined with constructive, compassionate and supportive feedback. I would describe my approach as eclectic, individualized, attuned, and holistically focused.
I am working on furthering my research into the specific and tangible benefits of ecotherapy. Engaging with nature has been a source of positive inspiration and healing in my personal experience. Finding, understanding more deeply, and strengthening this connection improves many facets of our health, which then ripples into our surroundings.Premera Blue Cross
I began my clinical career working in the addiction field in 2008. I furthered my education at Bastyr University and graduated with a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology. I am dually licensed in substance use and mental health treatment as a SUDP and LMHCA.
I am most passionate about working with adoptees, and all members of their extended families and do so through the lens of attachment theory. I also enjoy working with individuals and their respective family members struggling with substance use disorders.
In addition to working with adults, I appreciated my time interning at a local adolescent inpatient facility for internet and gaming addiction and enjoy working with our adolescent population, as well as couples and families.
While accruing hours towards full licensure, I am currently supervised by Rodney Jong, LMFT., as well as Erin Gist, LMHC, of Renova Counseling. I also regularly engage in trainings, continuing education and case consultion.
With any process, there is a pacing, and a flow; sometimes the waters are smooth and placid; while at other times intensely challenging and turbid. I look forward to bearing witness and sitting in the fire with you during the ebbs and flows of our humanity. The journey follows an intuitive, adaptive, and unscripted pathway.
In the near future, I will be available to provide therapeutic excursions, which includes the prospect of hiking and foraging for local seasonal edible wild plants and mushrooms, while engaging in the therapeutic process.
