Owner, Licensed Mental Health Counselor

I am a licensed mental health counselor and licensed professional counselor in Washington and Colorado. For the entirety of my career, I have worked with the military in various settings. I started my counseling career providing direct care to military members suffering from trauma, suicidality, depression, and anxiety disorders in the behavioral hospital setting. From the hospital I transitioned into private practice working solely with first responders and military. My military experience afforded me a unique set of skills that translated well with mental health work with first responders. Upon my final PCS back to our home of record, Washington state, I decided to open my own practice that focuses solely on military and first responder mental health.  


My specialties include trauma and PTSD treatment, specifically, military war trauma, to include service members involved in missions within the Global War on Terrorism: Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Afghanistan Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom. Many that have returned home from these missions have yet to work through their experiences or have found it overwhelmingly difficult to fully process their trauma – even a decade or more post-deployment. I utilize EMDR and Cognitive Processing therapy, among other methods, to help people heal from their experiences and regain their strength and resilience.


I work extensively with trauma processing for law enforcement and fire. I have several years of experience providing critical incident counseling, wellness training and stress management counseling. I approach wellness as wholistically as possible – addressing mental and emotional health, with physical exercise, nutrition, social support and above all – finding that meaning and purpose that we all need in life.


Outside of counseling it is my passion to train. I focus intently on stress and stress management education for uniformed services. Many experience trauma, all experience stress. What we do with our stress matters and I make it my business to help people that have inherently high stress callings manage that response better.
