I am a Washington State Approved Supervisor. The rate for supervision for associate therapists is $60 for each hour. Each hour of supervision will count towards licensure in addition to translating theoretical practices to real life cases. It is my goal in supervision to help each associate therapist further their professional development and become the therapist they really want to be.
I am a clinical member of the following organizations:
- American Association of Marriage and Family Therapist (AAMFT)
- Washington Association of Marriage and Family Therapist (WAMFT)
My challenging childhood was what inspired me to be a therapist. The challenges I have overcome in my childhood have left me with a desire to help children, adolescents, and their parents navigate their way through difficult issues. I am very good at helping adolescents and their parents in resolving their conflicting issues, and expanding parents’ repertoire of skills to handle many struggles of raising children. My other area of expertise is turning childhood issues into adulthood strengths.
