About me and my approach
I hold a Master's degree in social work from Eastern Washington University and earned my Bachelor's degree in social work from the University of Montana. I have worked in the field of social work since 1998 serving clients of diverse backgrounds in a variety of settings including:
school social work
community based mental health
foster care and adoption
I work with clients to create change through a collaborative process. I am creative, flexible and solution focused.
My approach is rooted in narrative therapy which is non-blaming and separates problems from people. My goal is to help clients be present with their lived experience and move towards valued living or "what matters." I am trained in EMDR, Internal Family Systems, and Complex PTSD.
I enjoy working with people struggling with identity issues, life transitions, trauma, teens and young adults. I am an advocate for neurodiversity and GLTQIA+ Ally.
