My goal in this work with families is to support relationships where both parent and child feel appreciated, acknowledged, loved and understood. It’s my passion to help children and families move beyond stumbling blocks and articulate underlying feelings, wants, and needs. I believe with support, encouragement, and the right tools, anyone can thrive!

I have an energetic attitude towards life and counseling. I have a natural and easy connection with children, teens and parents. Children and teens often tell me that I really “get” them and see where they are coming from. Parents tell me that elements improve across the board, even those we didn't specifically address in therapy.

My warm, easy personality helps young people and adults feel supported and accepted, yet challenged to grow. I'm not here to judge or criticize, but to create a relationship where you can see your blind spots and move forward.

I love spending my time with my husband and daughter, and have a pretty amazing dog named Luna. I like to build things and consider myself pretty handy. I also love to cook, travel, boat and fish.  I am very interested in how nutrition affects our mental and emotional health, and I'm a huge fan of crossfit. Oh, and Go Seahawks!
