About Me

 I am experienced in individual and family therapy. I utilize evidence-based practices along with empathy, collaboration and humor to address your unique concerns, needs and circumstances. Therapy is often an opportunity to become aware of and understand your thoughts, feelings, behaviors and motivations by which you conduct your life consciously and unconsciously. The process of therapy can be both difficult and rewarding. As a team, I hope to enhance your well-being, encourage informed decision making and help you to live more effectively and experience life more fully.

I am a lifelong resident of Washington State, but have just recently moved to Spokane. Outside of counseling, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and many pets. My personal interests include traveling, running, hiking and being outdoors. I also enjoy attending the theater, concerts and sporting events.

I'd love the opportunity to help you reach your health and wellness goals! Call for a free 20 minute consult today!
