I have been working with children and families in the mental health field since 1992. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings from group homes, residential facilities, psychiatric hospitals, schools, and private practice. I have come to appreciate the variety of challenges we all face from early childhood to late adulthood.
After graduating with a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Portland State University I moved to California and obtained a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Chico State University in 2001. In 2010 I decided to further my education and received a School Counseling degree from Seattle University.
