I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) therapist. I grew up in Henderson, Nevada, where I received my Bachelor's of Human Services Counseling and Master's of Social Work degree at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). I was involved in the mental and behavioral health community working with various populations to reduce mental health stigma and empower self-compassion. I moved to Washington State in 2015 to continue my passion of improving the mental and behavioral health field. I received my Doctor of Social Work (DSW) degree from Walden University where my thesis was focused on self-care using self-compassion theory. I want to use this passion in helping others through therapy services.
I have been a social worker for over 14 years and am passionate about helping others and self-care. My experiences includes behavioral and mental health, healthcare, working with various populations, such as adults, adolescences, older adults, early childhood, teenagers, and animals. My counseling approach is client-centered, strengths perspective, multicultural, and solution-focused while providing a safe, non-judgmental, and respectful environment for the therapeutic relationship. I want to help you learn how to help yourself.
