THE THERAPEUTIC EXPERIENCE
The therapeutic experience is created and shared by the willingness of both by the therapist and the client to share and to be honest with one another. Therapy can be both difficult and rewarding as it brings about change and experiencing uncomfortable and intense emotions can be a natural to part of that process. Ask questions and encourage yourself to be curious so that you are better able to work through intense emotions and the recall of unpleasant events. You are encouraged to discuss any thoughts or feelings you may have and can discontinue therapy at any time should you wish to do so. You may also request a referral to a new therapist at any time and you can refuse to do any activity you don't feel comfortable with. The most important aspect of therapy is your experience, so working together to ensuring a positive therapeutic experience isof the utmost Importance.

I received my graduate training from Eastern Washington University Social Work program. I use a CBT framework that is augmented with SolutionFocused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) informed skills, psycho-education, attachment theory and neurobiology. I have a holistic approach that focuses on problematic thoughts, emotions and behaviors that get in the way of us living the life we want to live. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and my pets and being in the outdoors, hiking, camping and four wheeling. I enjoy coffee in the mornings out on my deck, where I can watch the beauty of the Northwest unfold as the bird’s chirp and the sun comes up to welcome in the new day. The wilder side of me also enjoys loud music, going to concerts, comedy clubs and socializing with my friends.
