I am a licensed mental health counselor in the State of Washington with over eight years of experience in community mental health and private practice. I have developed competency in a variety of approaches to therapy. At the core of this process involves the professional relationship between the client and therapist. Although I draw upon a variety of specific treatment approaches, I focus on developing and maintaining a quality relationship with those that choose to work with me.
The most common approach I take is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). As a Level I Certified TEAM therapist, I utilize a variety of tools to assist the individuals that I work with to identify and replace core negative beliefs that often contribute to feelings of depression, anxiety, and a variety of other negative emotions. As a certified professional in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBTC), I also provide DBT therapy to assist in developing skills to live life more fully as well as other approaches as appropriate.
