I am distinguished by nearly three decades of diverse experience in the mental health sector, holding an Associate Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHCA) credential and a Master of Science in Education from Drake University. My work spans various treatment settings and includes expertise in juvenile justice systems, mental health disabilities, criminology, victimology, trauma psychology, forensic psychology, and biopsychology. Alongside my clinical practice, for the past 10 years, I have taught a range of psychology and social work courses at both graduate and undergraduate levels and have presented public seminars on psychological trauma.
I offer individual and group therapy to adolescents and adults, adopting a holistic approach to address issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Stress and Adjustment Issues, Relationship Problems, Self-Esteem Issues, Past Trauma Experiences, Generational Trauma, and Psychosis.
I employ a variety of treatment modalities to best meet the needs of my clients, including strength-based therapy, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, client-centered therapy, Life Course theory, and crisis counseling.
I have extensive experience in government agencies where I provided crisis counseling. I have a history of culturally sensitive work across diverse races, genders, identities, and belief systems. My current professional growth is supervised by Cynthia Ansley, MS, LMHC, NCC, at Seattle Wellness Center.

I was struggling with my anxiety and depression and I wasn’t sure what to do. After searching all over Seattle I finally came across Seattle Wellness Center. Their staff was warm, welcoming and accommodating to my needs. I could not thank them enough for everything they have done.
