I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and my Master of Social Work at Eastern Washington University. I have worked in the social service field for most of my career, serving children, youth, adults, and families. I have experience working with persons who identify as having a substance use disorder, a mental health disorder, behavioral disorder, those who have identified as experiencing homelessness, persons in group homes and facilities, and those in outpatient services. I have experience serving these populations that have identified and expressed the depression, anxiety and trauma they have experienced within their lives. Mindfulness is most important as we work towards discovering, developing and utilizing your strengths. We approach healing together in a manner in which your goals are the focus of your success and we do so with person-centered and strength-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy.
