I obtained my interpreting certificate along with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Psychology and Special Education from Western Oregon University (formerly Western Oregon State College). I earned my Master's of Counseling degree from George Fox University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington.
My passion is to help individuals see their intrinsic value. My goal is to guide people to be better able to live their lives in freedom rather than in bondage, to help restore broken relationships and to remove shame. Once freed from these shackles, individuals can move forward into healthy relationships and enjoy fulfilling lives.
