Most people are looking for an insight that has yet to present itself. I believe I am the right therapist for the individual and or couple who are looking for assistance finding what is already within you.
I attended Willamette University where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology. I earned my Masters of Social Work degree from University of Washington where I completed advanced studies in Grief Work, International Social Work, and was exposed to and fell in love with Gottman Couples Therapy, a strength-based approach to couples work. Within this Therapy approach, there is a real commitment to understanding what is working in addition to what can be strengthened.
Throughout my career, I have worked in a variety of settings providing individual, couples, group and family therapies both in outpatient and inpatient facilities. I have completed Level 3 of Gottman Clinical Training and will be enrolling in the Certification Track. I am a member of the Association of Oncology Social Work and the National Association Social Workers.
I am licensed by The Oregon State Board of Licensed Social Workers as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the Board of Oncology Social Work as an Oncology Social Worker – Certified.
