Who I Am

My Counseling Practice

Located in the heart of the South Perry neighborhood, I offer counseling services to individuals and couples looking for support and assistance as they navigate life's challenges and triumphs.  I provide an integrative, holistic and existential approach to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and tailor sessions to meet the specific needs of each individual client.  I accept most major insurance plans, including Molina, Amerigroup and Community Health Plan.

My Background

Native to the Spokane Area, I earned a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Psychology from Eastern Washington University (2003) and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State.  I specialize in maternal mental health, stress management, PTSD and the developmental needs of young adults.  I am a member of (or affiliated with) a number of organizations, such as the American Counseling Association, Postpartum Support International and Eastern Washington University.

Therapy Services

Maternal Mental Health

My primary focus is helping women navigate the challenges and triumphs of conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum recovery, motherhood and relationship transitions.  I have experience working with perinatal and postpartum mood disorders, infertility, reproductive loss and trauma and more.  I focus on support, advocacy and empowerment. 

Individuals

I warmly welcome individuals working through a broad range of personal issues including depression, anxiety, grief, relationship obstacles, traumatic experiences and difficult transitions.  Common focuses of therapy include the importance of self-care, insight development, skills acquisition, problem solving and finding meaning in one's experiences.

 

Relationships

Couples often need a safe, supportive environment to work though relationship issues.  I create a positive setting and facilitate conversations between loved ones.  I also offer communication skills and education to promote continued growth and collaboration.  LGBTQI+ couples and non-traditional families are welcome and respected.
