With over 8 years of experience in Washington mental health, I've worked with children and adults in a variety of settings [home, school, laboratory, community programs, outpatient, intensive outpatient, residential care]. I specialize in OCD/anxiety, mood, behavior, parenting, suicidal ideation, self harm, and trauma. My approach starts with providing a safe, non-judgmental space regardless of background. I highly value informed consent and clients being an active part of their treatment planning. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is my method of choice; supplemented with techniques from Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, mindfulness, parenting strategies & positive behavior support, Exposure & Response Prevention, and trauma-focused narrative therapy. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology at Whitworth University, and my Masters of Arts in Applied Child & Adolescent Psychology from the University of Washington.
