I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Washington, USA and a graduate of The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who have been scarred by trauma, addiction, and grief. I help those who have been wounded by family or relational systems, systems of spiritual oppression or abuse, and/or other systems of power that have made individuals feel helpless, and hurt and in search of meaning.
No matter what you are going through, my goal is to provide a place where you can be vulnerable without fear of judgment or harm. We have all been harmed in some way and often these places of pain twist our very identity when we can’t grieve what we have been through with someone who can bear it well. My hope is that together we can build the trust necessary to dive into these places of deep wounding and reconcile your past with your present awareness through a process of grieving and bearing witness. Facing the past also allows us to uncover the lies you may have believed were true about you. These identity-lies are part of how our past harm continues to bring more harm our way. Exposing these lies empowers you to step into the truth of who you really are and what you would like to become. As you find peace with what was and hope for what may be, you can engage fully in whatever life has for you in the present.
