WA License: LH 61320263
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington. This means I have completed an accredited graduate and post-graduate training programs in psychology. I received my MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from Liberty University in 2020.
I worked as an after-hours social worker 2016-2017 for the state of Washington. In 2019 I started working at Beautiful Autism as I was finishing my masters degree. I completed my Practicum and Internship under Ellen Soukup, Ph.D.
I have a focus in Couples Counseling and have become Level 1 certified in Gottman Therapy. I also have experience working with children of all ages as well as adults, couples and families. I am familiar with counseling for anxiety, depression, trauma, couples therapy, family therapy, foster care and adoption. I was a foster parent for several years and have two adopted children from the foster care system. I am familiar with providing help with attachment within the family dynamics. In late 2020 I started my solo practice business plan and 2021 officially started my solo practice Calming Waves Counseling.
My current focus for therapy is teens, adults, and couples.
