I grew up in Eastern Asia, which was instrumental in my identity development. It gave me a deep curiosity about the world, a drive to understand people as unique individuals, and a thirst to constantly learn. This wanderlust led me from career to career, and I gradually drew closer to counseling. By the time I obtained my master’s in clinical mental health from Denver Seminary, I realized that I feel most complete in the counseling room. It is life giving walking with people in the darkest of times, hearing their stories, and helping them develop new tools to overcome. I know from personal experiences, that there are seasons that are heartbreaking, damaging, and overwhelming. I hold constant hope that those times are not the end of the story and that the therapeutic relationship can be a major component of surviving and healing.
I have advanced training and experience with sexual addiction and betrayal trauma. I am trained in EMDR which can be beneficial in processing trauma of all kinds, and has been a major component in my own journey to healing. I see each client who comes in my door as a distinct person, with an original story, and will work with you to establish a safe relationship, define your goals, and work towards helping you through the seemingly impossible seasons.
