Specializing in mental health therapy for children, couples, and families.

Welcome to my counseling practice, conveniently located near Evergreen Hospital in the Totem Lake area of Kirkland, Washington. I offer convenient office hours and goal-oriented counseling meant to address your needs and return you back to the life you want to be living.

I aim to educate my clients about mental health diagnoses, treatments, and long-term maintenance in a safe environment while offering them necessary comprehensive care. My office is expertly designed for both individual and family treatment and is comfortable for parents with small children.
