A Little About Me
I was born and raised right outside of Portland, Oregon. I lived in Oregon up until I left for college to attend Seattle Pacific University. I fell in love with Seattle and decided to settle down here. I discovered, during my freshman year of college that I would be able to live out my dream of helping others by choosing a career path as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
I consider myself a major foodie. I love trying new restaurants, cooking, and watching any sort of food related show. My food obsession has taken a new form as I have learned to develop an appreciation for growing my own food, gardening and caring for plants. Most recently I started an herb garden and love incorporating the fresh herbs into meals. In my free time, I also love spending time with family and friends, whether it be over a delicious meal or simply sitting outside and enjoying the weather. The relationships that I have with family and friends are extremely important to me, and I love being able to connect and spend time together in any capacity.
I truly value experiences that are new and unique and have always had a love for traveling and being able to see the world. I have loved being able to travel and learn about different cultures (and eat delicious food). Along with a passion for traveling, I adore animals.
I earned both my Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2020 and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Sociology in 2017 from Seattle Pacific University. I began working as a Marriage and Family Therapist for Larch Counseling in August of 2020. Prior to joining Larch Counseling, I worked as a clinical intern at Renton Area Youth and Family Services (RAYS) in the downtown Renton office, consulting with young kids, adolescents, and their families from January 2019 to June 2020. I am a certified PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator for premarital counseling and I am a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
