After many years running a busy herbal medicine company, I sold my business and made a mid-life career change. I studied Marriage and Family Therapy at Montana State University, with an additional year of graduate studies in the Spirituality, Health and Medicine program at John Bastyr University. Becoming a counselor is one of the best decisions I ever made. I love sharing this work, and I hope it shows.
I've studied and practiced many techniques and counseled hundreds of individuals and couples through relationship challenges, trauma, anxiety, depression and losses of all kinds. Emotionally Focused Therapy is my choice of methods for helping clients regain their love. It's been incredibly gratifying to support clients learn new communication skills, reunite and regain their love. I am also passionate about supporting individuals to dig deep, grow, become mindful, move past anxiety and depression and become the person they want to be.
I'm fortunate to be married to my best friend, and we have two great kids who have grown into amazing, responsible young adults. In my free time, I like to hike, bike, paddle and travel.
