In 2004 I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and minors in Studio Art and Religion. I also hold a certificate of leadership from The University of the Nations (YWAM) in New Zealand. After serving overseas with the organization, I went on to receive my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from what's now known as The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. In graduate school I had the privilege of learning from renown educators in the field of psychology, including Dr. Dan Allender. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington, as well as a Child Mental Health Specialist.
From holding positions at psychiatric hospitals to serving communities overseas, I have been working with people in a therapeutic capacity for over 15 years. My curiosity for other cultures has led me to every continent, and my passion for learning continually compels me to connect with people of diverse cultures here in Seattle. I am an advocate for social justice and I am committed to the process of creating healthy communities.
Since graduating in 2011, my professional experience includes working at The Moore Center for Eating Disorders, Therapeutic Health Services, and The Center For Clinical Excellence at THS. I believe that anyone can experience transformation, and I would be honored to partner with you on your journey to wellness.
