I joined Unity Care NW in February 2016 as an Integrated Behavioral Health Counselor, and in January 2018 I became the Specialty Behavioral Health Supervisor & Counselor. I love working with the people in our community in Bellingham. I received my BA from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI in 2008. I majored in Religion and minored in Communication Arts and Sciences. I went on to earn my MA in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in 2013. I also obtained a Chemical Dependency Professional Trainee credential in July 2017. I have a history of working in community mental health, starting as a Case Manager in 2008 for a non-profit in Michigan. Since obtaining my MA, I have worked in both the community and a hospital prior to moving to Bellingham in 2016. I enjoy working at Unity Care and assisting patients as part of an integrated care team.
