I have a deep and abiding passion for the human spirit and an intuitive understanding of how people experience connection to one another. I use my clinical experience and training to discover what makes you truly unique and special. My counseling and coaching work empowers individuals and families to identify what will allow them to grow into their full and authentic selves, in all aspects of their life.
I have spent most of my professional life creating safe spaces in which my clients can explore and pursue new possibilities. My collaborative coaching style invites clients to be experts in their own experience, which improves their ability to choose the right solutions.
I have over 20 years experience in providing assessment and counseling services to individuals and families at community mental health agencies and in private practice in Canada & in Washington State. I have also devoted a significant amount of time to building and supporting functional teams in my role as a leader with various volunteer and professional organizations. My colleagues and clients describe me as warm, compassionate, and creative, with a great sense of humor.
