    About Me:

    I have over nine years of clinical experience working in a variety of mental health settings: private practice, schools, college campus, for-profit agencies and community mental health settings. My clinical area of interest includes play therapy and mental health counseling. I have been a long-time advocate for play therapy and has served as a board member and President for both the Washington and Nevada Association for Play Therapy.  I maintains a strong line of research on parental bereavement due to a sudden and unexpected death. I have presented on parental bereavement and play therapy at universities, agencies, regional and national conferences. I am a native Washingtonian and has lived in several cities across the state. In my spare time I enjoy playing with my two beautiful children, gardening and engaging in creative activities such as painting, scrap booking or writing.
