I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist (LMHC) based in Edmonds, WA.
During my first psychology class in high school, I developed an interest in mental health counseling. This evolved into a deep passion for helping and supporting others through some of their darkest and most difficult times. Starting with that first class nearly twenty years ago, I found a path to becoming a mental health therapist, and it is my life’s passion.
Completing my undergraduate bachelor’s degree in psychology at Eastern Washington University, I then went on to Lewis and Clark College for a master’s degree in mental health counseling. My career as a therapist began at a residential eating disorder treatment center. I had completed the coursework for a specialization in eating disorders, and this position at the treatment center solidified my interest in this area.
Being a therapist is a large part of my identity. In addition to this aspect of my identity, I am also a mother of a young child, a wife, a newish ballet dancer, a music and concert enthusiast, a reader and writer, an avid walker, and a lover of all kinds of animals, especially felines.
