I am passionate about helping individuals, couples, families, professionals and organizations thrive in their relationships. This fundamental part of our existence leads to greater happiness, meaning, purpose, productivity and life satisfaction. When our families, teams and communities thrive, we can experience the fullness of life we were created for. Together we can make that happen.
I am committed to connecting relationally with people with acceptance, empathy and a willingness to see the best, even as we work together to find ways for life to be better. Professionally, I hold a high value for the most evidence-based, proven methods for change, which has led me to pursue advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, become a Certified Gottman Educator and an AAMFT Approved Supervisor (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists). In addition to counseling, consulting and supervising mental health professionals, I have loved teaching at graduate and undergraduate universities and speaking at various events to inspire people to love well and live their best life.
Personally I delight in being a mom to 4 kids from early elementary to high-school, and grieve the traumatic loss of our full term son in heaven. In all we have faced together, I cherish the love, friendship, and ongoing learning and growth in my marriage to my college sweetheart. In service, I provide leadership on the Executive Regional Board for Young Life Puget Sound and the Edmonds Young Life Committee and volunteer regularly with youth sports, faith-based organization and advocacy for the needs of our world.
