I started working at UCNW in June 2021.
I have an MA in Social Work from Eastern Washington University in Cheney. I have several years’ experience as a therapist working with children and families, including roles at Lutheran Community Services in Spokane and at Lower Columbia Mental Health & Children’s Center in Vancouver, WA. I also worked at Strengthening Foundations Counseling Services in Vancouver, providing community and home-based therapeutic services for families referred from Children’s Administration and Juvenile Courts. I practice out of the 1616 Cornwall Avenue Behavioral Health Clinic, as well as Carl Cozier Elementary School.
Working in Community Mental Health has been an opportunity to witness resiliency in action, and be a part of building hope in partnership with children and families.
