In 2023, I opened Valley Counseling after graduating from Washington State University with a Masters in Education and Counseling Psychology in 2012. I have extensive experience as a counselor in the Washington state community college system, working with diverse populations including first-generation, low-income, disabled, Latino, and undocumented students. My therapy style incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness exercises such as breathing techniques, guided meditation, and other tools tailored to your needs. I specialize in helping individuals dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression, while also focusing on building resilience, self-compassion, and self-confidence. As a servant in my calling, I draw upon my own faith for guidance and would be happy to explore any questions you have regarding prayer and faith. I am excited to meet you and work towards your wellness.
