"Trauma is not what happens to is what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you." - Gabor Maté

I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Grand Canyon University and a Master’s in Arts in Counseling Psychology with a Concentration in Trauma and Abuse from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. I also have earned certificates in Narrative Focused Trauma Care from The Allender Center.

I am a licensed mental health counselor associate in the state of Washington. My in-person practice is located in Kitsap County. I offer telehealth options to increase access to therapeutic services to those who may not otherwise be able to see a therapist.

More Than Trauma-Informed, Trauma Trained

My pronouns are she/her. I welcome all bodies, all abilities, all races & ethnicities, all religions, all sexual orientations, identities, and expressions, all countries of origin, and all people. Wherever you are on your journey, I would be honored to be with you. 

I invite you to meet with me to see if we may be a good therapeutic fit.

My Background: I have spent over a decade facilitating group work with women who had experienced trauma and abuse.   My passion is to create an environment in which the stigma and silence surrounding abuse can be broken in the lives of those in our community. I have seen the freedom of healing that can be offered when people are supported by both individual and group therapy. I love working in a group setting because of the ability for attendees to be offered care by others with similar experiences. I focused my graduate work on expanding my knowledge of trauma and abuse.  The goal is to bring into focus one's experience of familial, identity-based, religious, and social harms from a framework of one's attachment styles in current relationships. I work with others to identify healing experiences beyond talk therapy by integrating group work with a deeper awareness of one's somatic response to their history of trauma and abuse. I seek opportunities to increase my awareness of the oppression that exists in our community and world. I desire to create a safe place to explore the harm that you have experienced.

Learning to Hold Beauty and Brokenness

My theory of change:

We are influenced by many forces in our lives. Those forces had a powerful impact on molding and shaping us. They told us what was acceptable or not, what was true, and how we should be. If we cannot name these influences and decide what we accept and reject, we cannot break vows and agreements. If we do not recognize the binds that were created by these influences, we cannot decide to get out of the box we have been shoved into and step into the box that is uniquely ours. We have a choice, but we must actually choose to embrace change.
