Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | MA, LMFT
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) providing counseling and therapeutic intervention from a Biblical perspective. My offices are located in Puyallup and Lakewood, Washington. I am trained to work with adults, adolescents, couples, families, and groups. Although I work with depression, anxiety, and a wide variety of life challenges, my specialties are marital counseling, eating disorders, substance abuse and process addictions, blended families, and spiritual development. In addition, I am working to educate myself on the unique challenges and healing processes for gender-dysphoric clients and those experiencing unwanted same-sex attraction. My focus areas are motivated from life experiences that I have dealt with personally or in relationship with a loved one, therefore I delight and derive an enormous sense of purpose in assisting those struggling with similar issues.
My goal is to help you learn about yourself, grow, and put together your own social, emotional, and spiritual health toolbox so you can overcome present challenges and any future problems encountered in life. I provide a safe and supportive space for you to unload and be who you really are right now, flaws and all. It takes a lot of courage to be vulnerable and let someone into the most painful places in your life. I am patient and gentle, and will take as long as needed to build rapport and trust with you. We will walk this leg of your journey to wholeness together.
