I work from an empowerment model. My goal is to teach clients new ways of perceiving their problem, healthy coping behaviors for responding to their problem, and healthy attitudes & communication skills for working with their families, partners, or work environment so they can make changes in their own life.
I live with my supportive, loving and humorous family in the mountains just outside of beautiful Bellingham, Washington
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and exploring our beautiful Cascades and other areas that are truly awe-inspiring around here. Aren't we lucky to live in such a beautiful place? Occasionally I find time for violin/fiddle, skating, cooking/baking... but always make time for laughing and sharing with people close to me.
