Mental health therapy is a very personal and individualized process. I work with people from all walks of life and offer a space of acceptance, openness, and curiosity. I have spent over a decade gaining experience in helping adults and teens that struggle specifically with:
Life and Career Transitions
In order to create a plan unique to your situation, I look at the whole person from past to future, physical, social, and mental health. I utilize theories that are proven to be most helpful and are special to my own journey. These include: Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Jungian Analytical Depth Psychology. These modalities allow my clients to see improvements in both physical and mental health, as well as clearing barriers that prevent them from their full potential, providing long lasting effects.

I hold a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Saint Martin’s University College of Education and Counseling located in Lacey, Washington. My work has provided me with the opportunity to work with clients and groups in multiple settings including: at-risk youth in residential settings, young adults in a university counseling center, teens and adults in an inpatient chemical dependency center, and adults in an outpatient mental health clinic. I utilize these experiences, additional trainings, seminars, courses, my own personal journey, and my martial arts training to inform my work with clients.
Fees and Insurance
I have setup my practice in a way that allows me the ability to create an individualized and unique plan that fits your personal needs and addresses all of your concerns. It also allows me to have a stronger level of privacy for my clients, a guarantee that you will always be able to receive services from the same therapist, and shorter wait times to begin therapy. In order to obtain this, my practice does not directly accept insurance plans. Alternatively, I do offer insurance reimbursement paperwork (superbills) that can be submitted to your insurance provider allowing you to utilize your out of network benefits. Most insurance providers have this option such as: Providence, Blue-Cross Blue-Shield (BCBC), and United Healthcare (UHC) just to name a few. This process is minimal and involves sending them a monthly statement. Many of my clients do this process and are directly sent a check for part or all of the session fees. I also am able to directly accept HSA/FSA cards for payment of services.
Regular session fees are $80 for individuals and $100 for family/couples work. I also offer a sliding scale for a limited number of clients based on financial need.
Due to the nature of the therapy relationship, it is important for me to make sure we are a good fit for each other, this involves parents of teen clients as well. I offer an initial no-cost consultation session which allows you to visit my office and ask questions about myself and the process of therapy.
