I am a Clinical Psychologist working with Seattle Christian Counseling out of Mill Creek. As a therapist with years of experience, I am delighted to offer you my services in professional Christian counseling! We all have times in our lives when we can use encouragement, a different perspective, fresh ideas, new direction and a restored sense of hope. I would feel privileged to accompany you on this journey of self-discovery and personal transformation!
Neuropsychological Testing and Assessment
One of the skills I am delighted to bring to the team at Seattle Christian Counseling is my ability to conduct neuropsychological testing and assessment. Having completed specialized training in this area, I have years of training and experience in conducting evaluations for cognitive and memory issues, learning disability, ADHD for teens and adults, and adult personality and coping styles (psychological testing).

My Goal as a Christian Counselor
As a Christian therapist, my goal is to encourage clients in their relationship with God so that they can better understand his purposes and come to a point of restoration. I strive to provide a warm, comfortable atmosphere in which clients feel safe and confident speaking about any issue or concern without fear of judgment. I aspire to empower those who seek my help to recognize their amazing potential as God’s children. This often includes establishing new habits of thinking and acting that enables the client to use their gifts and talents in the best ways possible.
What I Offer as a Christian Counselor
I will use my expertise as a clinical psychologist to extend my professional wisdom and insight to help you discern how to overcome life’s challenges. Working from a collaborative approach, I can offer you objective partnership in darkness and compassionate encouragement in doubt. Above all, as a Christian counselor I can provide a sense of hope, a promise that your concerns are heard, and an assurance that you are cared for. I have years of training and experience in preforming neuropsychological evaluations, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the assessment process.
My Counseling Approach: What to Expect in Therapy
I practice an integrative method of therapy. This means that I do not rely solely on one technique or orientation, but tailor my approach to meet the individual needs of each client. I begin by talking through the present circumstances that have lead you to seek counseling support. I tend to draw mainly from solution-focused and strength-based methods, which enable us to identify your personal strengths that will empower you to overcome current and future obstacles. While I always incorporate the most current approaches for treating different conditions, I believe that following God’s lead in the treatment process is crucial. Therefore, I always keep God at the center of my practice, and I am happy to pray with you if you find prayer helpful.

More About Me
I am raising two wonderful children, and have spent 10 of those years as a stay-at-home parent, before returning to graduate school and a career. Being a parent has been one of the greatest adventures ever. With the different experiences of juggling these responsibilities, I have a heart for single parents and those working through difficult life transitions. At the same time, my own challenges have given me new perspective on God’s unending graciousness, provision, and healing. God has shown me how to trust his leading and his timing, and has over and over reminded me never to limit his plans for me.
