Professional Counselor Associate, QMHP
My passion for counseling and helping others comes from several life experiences that highlighted the lack of therapeutic services and providers available to children and families that are low-income and/or live in rural communities. These motivating factors led me to obtain my Bachelors of Science in Psychology from the University of Oregon, and then my Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University.
I believe in providing early childhood intervention from a multidimensional perspective, with consideration given to any and all biopsychosocial factors which increase the chances of development into a healthy and well-functioning individual. I employ an integrated approach with a Cognitive-Behavioral foundation, utilizing evidence-based practices, techniques, and interventions for treatments that are specifically tailored to each individual’s unique circumstances, needs, and goals.
I believe change comes in many different forms and everyone’s journey in life is unique. You get to pick the direction and use the past as a guide to make better choices for the future.
I enjoy spending time with family, gardening, and watching anime.
