Philosophy and Approach
Counseling is a vital part of the journey toward a more deeply satisfying life. As a professional counselor, it is my privilege to partner with you in initiating the change you desire for growth, health, and freedom. I have been working with people in counseling, social work, educational, and pastoral settings since 2004. My areas of specialization include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family problems, survivors of abuse, low self-esteem, and adjustment to life changes and transitions for both youth and adults.
During our counseling process, we will consider the issues that brought you into counseling in a safe, respectful space. You can expect to A) explore your story – valuing how the past influences present patterns, B) process your relationships – we can be greatly harmed and greatly healed in relationships, and C) set goals toward growth and lasting change – trials and transitions are often catalysts towards transformational living. I use a holistic and integrative approach, keeping in mind the psychological, physiological, relational, and spiritual aspects of your life and unique journey.
As a Christian counselor, my foundational belief is that you are made in the image of a loving God and you are worthy of acceptance and belonging. This belief charges me to bring quality care and hope to the therapeutic setting. Careful and intentional consideration will be given to you, your beliefs, values, choices, cultural influences, and desires.
Formal Education and Training:
My education includes a Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling from Northwest Christian University and Bachelor of Arts in Theology from LIFE Pacific College. As a therapist in the state of Washington I have been certified in Family Preservation Therapy, Family Reconciliation Therapy, Crisis Intervention, SECURE, Motivational Interviewing, and Positive Behavior Support. As a Child Protective Social Worker I have received certified training in domestic violence, substance abuse, child abuse, and addiction. I am an ordained minister with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel and have served on the National Cabinet and Divisional Council Boards. I am a certified Mending the Soul facilitator and continually facilitate groups for women. I am committed to personal and professional growth and actively pursue new techniques, continued education, theories and information.
Continuing Education and Supervision:
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with the State of Oregon (#C6882). To maintain my license, I am required to participate in ongoing continuing education every year, taking classes dealing with subjects relevant to my clients.
Payment for Services:
My standard hourly rate is $185.00 for a 50-minute session. Payment is due at the beginning of each session via cash, check, or credit card. While we do not accept insurance, you may investigate if your insurance benefits cover out-of- network providers and what those terms are. You may be able to submit paperwork to your insurance company in order to apply our sessions to deductibles and/or receive assistance or reimbursement for the costs. I am happy to provide a bill of services that you can submit to your insurance company upon request.
