Experience and Background
I hold a Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling from Seattle University and am a Certified Pastoral Counselor and a Licensed Mental Heath Counselor Associate (LMHCA). I integrate spirituality and psychology in a clinically- accountable, sustaining, flexible and Faith-enriching way. As a therapist at Lutheran Counseling Network, I am in residency with 16 excellent Master and Doctor-prepared therapists who serve the Church at 17 locations throughout the Puget Sound region. I continue to seek supervision, training and formation under the guidelines of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, Spiritual Directors International, and the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples.
Through the generosity of the ELCA, I am able to serve clients on a discounted fee scale. I am currently eligible for limited insurance.
