About Me

I am a skilled, compassionate listener and an astute communicator with wisdom, resources, and healthy boundaries. Everyone deserves respect and a voice, and I practice as I live with sensitivity and welcome without reservations. I bring more than 25 years of diverse education and experience in counseling, international feminist studies, world religions, and business with a lifelong drive to help others.

I received my Master’s and Doctoral (ABD) degrees in 2008. I have training and experience in Psychoanalysis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Marriage and Family Therapy, Trauma Informed Parenting, EMDR, Early Developmental Trauma, mediation, meditation, and more.


I have two young adult children, one of whom is beautifully intense. With the best of intentions, I parented her out of my fears, in ways that did not meet her needs, causing much damage. It wasn't until the gift of crisis pushed me to dig very deep that I stumbled upon the Nurtured Heart Approach. It transformed our home and family almost overnight. I received extensive training from the Founder Howard Glasser and am now an Advanced Trainer in the Nurtured Heart Approach.

While calling the Northwest home for over 40 years, I have also lived and traveled abroad extensively. These experiences have added a depth of perspective and understanding and an increased ability to be culturally aware and adaptive.
