I received my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and sociology with a minor in psychology at Eastern Washington University, and then went on to earn a Master of Social Work, also at EWU.
In my previous work, I volunteered as a court-appointed special advocate and also a school social work intern. I have also trained in CBITS-CBT for trauma in schools, and PCIT-parent child relational therapy.
I utilize a wide range of modalities including DBT, CBT, ACT, strengths-based therapy, family systems theory, motivational interviewing, attachment theory, and conflict resolution. I define myself as honest, hardworking, self-motivated, creative, organized, positive and a team player.
In my free time, I enjoy watching documentaries, reading true crime books, traveling, going to concerts, spending time with my three daughters, cooking, baking, researching, and listening to music.
