About My Clients

I help all clients who seek to increase awareness, strengths, intelligence (IQ and EQ), resiliency, create empowering processes and solutions leading to meaningful life engagement, and improving quality of life. I have worked with all ages, backgrounds and issues, individuals, couples and families. I have found the best predictor of effective therapy is how well the client connects with the therapist. I am open to working with all people, cultures and conditions.

My Background and Approach

I offer an eclectic approach with a significant focus on humanistic, empowerment, positive psychology, experiential, solution-focus, relational, holistic, polyvagal, trauma, integration, mindfulness CBT, DBT, and art therapy. I will use a variety of interventions depending on what the client is receptive to and effective. My nature is one of genuineness, truth, and unconditional compassion while helping you live a meaningful and happy life. I am multicultural, open-minded, adaptable, and enjoy working with a variety of clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that anyone who chooses to live an empowered life can optimize their reality of health and happiness. I have worked in health and human services since 1987 as a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), Certified Wellness Consultant (CWC), Health Analyst, and Professional Counselor. I hold an MA in professional counseling from Liberty University and an MBA from Pacific Lutheran University. Major course work included human growth and development with an emphasis on youth, individual, family, relationships, group dynamics, holistic health integration and optimization. In my personal time I enjoy time in nature, meditation, exercise, rollerblading, motorcycling, river kayaking, hiking, gardening, traveling, creative arts, food, writing poetry, watching movies, healthy relationships, and new experiences...
