I am a Masters level Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 20 years experience working with adult individuals and couples. Before I graduated with honors from the Applied Behavioral Science program at the Leadership Institute of Seattle at Bastyr University, I received a Masters Degree in Theater Arts.
My clinical training includes intensive work in individual psychotherapy with adults. My work focuses on issues of relationship, anxiety, depression, self-esteem and the resolution of trauma. I specialize in the integration of body and mind for optimal wellness. My background includes over thirty years practicing dance and Authentic Movement, as well as completing the two-year intensive training program in Somatic Transformation®. I now assist Dr. Sharon Stanley in training therapists in somatic trauma work. This is a method of working with the intelligence of the central nervous system to enhance the emotional healing process.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference. - The Serenity Prayer
