My Approach to Helping
I have a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and maintain licensure in both Washington and Idaho states. I have been in private practice for almost 20 years. I maintain both in-office appointments as well as an online presence.
I specialize in the care and treatment of those who suffer from depression, anxiety, more complicated mood disorders such as Bipolar Disorder, personality disorders, and co-occurring substance abuseaddiction. The therapeutic approaches I have expertise in are: Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Therapy, Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Humanistic Approach, Emotion-focused Therapy, Trauma Therapies and I often use a Spiritual approach.
I consider assisting others through difficulties and trauma a PRIVILEGE. I enjoy what I do and am good at what I do.
