I graduated from Whitworth University with a masters in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2015. I am passionate about working with couples, women in transitional periods of life, and foster/adopt parents.
Premarital Counseling- Receiving premarital counseling is an excellent way to start a healthy marriage. It is an opportunity to explore the unique differences and similarities between a couple. In premarital counseling you will learn each others life rhythms, this includes everything from how you spend money to expectations for the marriage itself. I use a variety of tools to help guide our counseling process and spark conversation as we journey through the premarital counseling process. Typically, premarital counseling lasts for 4-8 sessions and each session is 80 minutes long. I look forward to joining you during this exciting time!
Couples Therapy- It is easy to feel stuck in the gridlock of relationship stress. Often times people come into therapy saying, “Why do we always argue about the same things?” or “Why doesn’t he/she understand me and what I need?” Often times, people feel alone, even when they are in a relationship. In couples therapy I work with couples on shifting the cycles they often engage in and helping individuals feel heard and seen in the relationship.
Individual Therapy- There are seasons in life that we may feel exceptionally defeated or anxious. This often happens during big transitions or during a waiting period. I work with individuals using a variety of evidence based techniques to develop strategies to help individuals overcome challenges that once felt impossible.
Foster/Adoptive Parents- While many of the same issues arise for foster/adopt couples and individuals, as any other parents, there are a unique set of struggles and joys that come with being a foster/adopt parent. I work with parents to process their experiences with these complexities using a foundation of attachment models.
