I have made my home and established a private practice in the Pacific Northwest. Through my work, I am committed to helping people overcome addictions to alcohol and drugs, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and other stresses that affect all of us at some time in our lives.
I believe that healing is a collaborative endeavor that requires honest caring without judgment, and I cooperatively assist my clients in clarifying their goals for treatment. Rather than adopting one methodology for all individuals and issues, I draw from a variety of methods to create a tailored approach for each individual and situation. As a therapist, I am warm, open, encouraging, and direct. I consider myself an active therapist, combining experience, education, creativity, and sense of humor with a down-to-earth, realistic approach to counseling.
My credentials include the following:
- Advanced Addiction Counselor (AAC)
- Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS)
- Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work (BCD)
- Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
- Substance Abuse Professional (SAP)
