I have worked with a wide variety of people and problems. I work collaboratively with individuals, and/or their partners/families to help find solutions that they can live with. I use techniques from a variety of theoretical backgrounds; such as Art Therapy, Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Anger Management Skills and common sense.
I have been providing mental health services for over twenty five years on Whidbey Island, in Seattle and in Everett. I am licensed by the State of Washington as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) 2001 to present. I have a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Washington 1987. I have been a Child Mental Health Specialist since 1984. I have qualified as a Mental Health Professional since 1989.
