“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.”
-Shannon L. Alder
I provide Individual and Family Therapy to individuals 12 years of age and older around issues such as:
Spiritual and Religious Concerns
Acculturation/Assimilation and Cross-cultural Concerns
I am a passionate therapist with experience working with children, teenagers, adults and families. My education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Salem College, Winston-Salem, NC and a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Seton Hill University, Greensburg, PA. I am licensed in the state of Washington (LF60607100). I regard myself as a well-rounded therapist as I have had the privilege of working with a wide variety of individuals and families from different cultures with different backgrounds, as well as from varied age ranges. In working with clients, some of the facets I love to include and embrace are their cultural identity and sense of self and how it plays a role in their worldview and presenting concerns. I am also able to include my Christian perspective to clients who desire the above. Sometimes we just need someone to sit with us in our fast-paced world and a listening ear during the noisy chaos of our surrounding. Therapy sessions can provide us with this and more. I believe in molding sessions to fit my clients’ needs and I hope you can afford me the honor of taking your journey of change with you.

Payment is expected when services are rendered. I also work with individuals and families who would like to pay out-of-pocket and prefer not to use their insurance. Prior to your initial session, I would highly recommend consulting your insurance to ensure they cover behavorial health services and will accept receipts/statements from me for reimbursement if I am not currently on their insurance panel.
