Focus Area: Marriage And Family Therapist

Licensed in: Washington

I am a client-centered strengths-based therapist. I have experience working with children, teenagers, families, couples and individual adults from all walks of life. I meet you where you are at in life. I have a passion for helping others and offer a compassionate, safe space to help you work towards positive change. My work from a strengths-based perspective helps you recognize your strengths. Your strengths are how you have managed life as you know it. We will work together towards a solution that feels best to you. I believe we are all stronger than we know and sometimes things just get in the way. We can take time to understand the patterns that have been created in your life. While we can’t change the past, knowing your story can help you move forward. Understanding these influences in life can help you to resolve things that may be holding you back, keeping you from reaching your goals.
