With two decades of experience in the health and fitness field as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I have a special interest in coming alongside people who are struggling with making the lifestyle changes they desire to improve their overall health. As a Certified Integrated Intimacy Practitioner (CIIP), I have expertise in working with couples in the area of sexuality, spirituality, and intimacy.
I received a Master's of Science Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific University in 2005, and have been in private practice ever since. Sharing health and wellness with others is my passion, and my goal was to round out my knowledge of physical health with mental health to assist others in feeling better in mind, body and spirit.
I began my practice as a family therapist so that I can share my experience, wisdom and education with individuals, couples, and families - whatever the challenge or situation may be. I look forward to seeing how I can be helpful to you - whether through therapy, resource suggestions and/or referrals to other providers.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Washington (LF00002667), and a Clinical Member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). I have been credentialed as an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor.
I have two beautiful children and a special man who light up my life. Our family has been through many of its own transitions. Through unconditional love, respect, and honor, we continue our amazing journey together.
