I have always been interested in relationship dynamics and conflict resolution because I believe that even the deepest of hurts can be resolved with peace and reconciliation. My faith plays an integral role in my care and concern for people. Because of it, I find great joy in supporting people through their trials as they discover deep truths about themselves, those around them and the intersection between the two.
I am currently earning my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Touro University Worldwide. I completed a Master of Law from the University of Washington and Bachelor of Urban Planning from Virginia Tech. My previous work experience includes supporting the homeless population in downtown Seattle, fighting child hunger as an AmeriCorps member, teaching English in Korea, recruiting at Amazon, doing ministry in Germany and more.
I am Gottman Level 1 certified and am currently working toward certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I plan to use the knowledge from these trainings, my schooling, and personal experience to support couples who are dissatisfied in their emotional and intimate connections. In addition to these modalities, I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients identify and reframe their thoughts in attempts to repair and restore their relationships. I currently offer availability during the daytime, evenings, and on Sundays. I am seeing clients in person in Edmonds and via telehealth. I also receive supervision from Nolan Giesbers, one of our more seasoned clinicians at Navigate Family Therapy. His bio is available here.
