I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Washington and my Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. I have spent many years working with children, adolescents, adults, elderly adults, and families with behavioral, emotional, occupational, and social needs. I have also worked with athletes addressing sports psychology.
Most recently before opening Excel Counseling, I worked at a high volume, high risk community health care counseling center working with children, adolescents, adults, and families addressing many issues such as trauma, domestic violence, and autism. Each unique individual I have been honored to work with has taught me both personally and professionally.
In addition to my work experience, I continue to learn and grow from my life experience, including raising 3 children of my own. My education, specialized training, work and client experience, and life and relationship experience have all led me to a counseling career I love. I am looking forward to meeting you and having a successful counseling experience together.
