As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the State of Washington (LH60220280) with over fourteen years’ experience working in behavioral health, I strive to offer an inviting, attentive, accepting and safe space for you to share your struggles openly and confidentially. I have a wide range of experience working with adult populations of diverse backgrounds and I specialize in the treatment of trauma, depression and anxiety using Evidenced-Based Practice.
I have advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Common Elements Treatment Approach (CETA) for the treatment of trauma, depression and anxiety in adults. Using these treatment modalities, I assist you in developing a better understanding of how your thoughts and feelings are connected; I teach skills to manage unhelpful thoughts in order to achieve tangible behavioral and emotional change. For trauma survivors, CBT and CETA approaches are effective trauma treatments. I would be honored to support you in both understanding the effects of your trauma history and in helping you move towards healing.
Together, we will develop a personalized and agreed upon treatment plan, learn new ways to increase your sense of emotional stability and safety, learn to process and express emotions in a healthy way, differentiate between healthy and unhealthy behavioral patterns, develop a self-care plan, improve your self-esteem and self-confidence, identify, acknowledge and build upon your strengths, and develop skills to cope with emotions and effectively manage your mood. You are taking a very important first step and I’m excited for us to meet!
Some of my specialties include the following:
• Anxiety (Stress, Social Anxiety, Phobias, Generalized Anxiety)
• Trauma & Stress Related Concerns
• Adjustment Issues
• Family Conflict / Communication Issues
• Coping with Life Changes
• Issues Related to Grief and Loss
• PRIDE / LGBTQIAP+ Counseling
