About My Clients

If you're unsatisfied with the status quo, then let's find your sublime. Adults looking for a creative outlet, a place to vent, or support for hard times are my ideal clients. I specialize in anxiety and depression, work stress and career goals, identity or relationship issues, life changes or traumatic events. I offer online counseling and therapy to adults in Washington. I also offer in-person services to Vancouver, Portland, and Clark County residents at my Salmon Creek office.

My Background and Approach

I use a client-centered, collaborative, and creative approach. I have an M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling & Art Therapy from Antioch University Seattle. The focus of my training was on expressive and creative arts therapy, an experiential approach to psychotherapy that emphasizes the creative process for exploring difficult situations, processing experiences, seeing different perspectives, and promoting well-being. With my clients, I've listened to music, watched videos, reviewed journals and social media, and made art in session as a powerful way to communicate. My background as a project manager also contributes to the career counseling I do.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My goal is to create a safe space for you to feel comfortable. Unusual tales and winding paths are welcome—there is no judgment for any stories you bring. You are accepted wholeheartedly with caring curiosity. We'll talk, feel, brainstorm, problem solve, or use a creative process if you can't find the words. Together, we'll help you find freedom of expression and the potential to grow.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
