Throughout my work with counseling clients, as well as in prison ministries, with first responders, and with veterans, I have been drawn/led to study scripture and use what I learn to enhance my work and benefit others. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington state, I bring a wealth of experience and a genuine passion for helping individuals navigate life's challenges.

With a background of serving 26 years in the Military, I understand firsthand the unique struggles and experiences that those who serve under oath deal with. This has given me a deep appreciation for the sacrifices made and the resilience possessed. I consider it a true gift to be able to work with individuals from these backgrounds.

My approach to therapy is solution-focused, meaning that we will work collaboratively to identify your goals and develop practical strategies to help you achieve them. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I believe in the power of positivity and that each individual has the strength within themselves to enact positive change in their lives.

Regardless of your background, I am here to support you throughout your therapeutic journey. Whether you're seeking assistance with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or any other concerns, I am committed to providing a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to explore and grow.

I am truly excited to embark on this therapeutic journey with you, and I look forward to helping you discover the tools and insights that will empower you to live a more fulfilling and balanced life. Remember, you're not alone in this journey, and together we can find the solutions that work best for you.
