Fall Seven Times. Stand up Eight.
I have been working in the behavioral health and counseling field for over 30 years. I enjoy what I do and value being available to you. It is a gift to me- that in this capacity- I have never dreaded Monday morning. I am one of the few private practice clinicians available to work with individuals experiencing some of the most intrusive, uncomfortable and unwanted experiences. I work with those struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and psychosis related to schizophrenia and substances such as cannabis. I, currently, help individuals struggling with anxiety or panic attacks, severe depression, psychosis, inabilities to get things done, effectiveness in relationships and past traumas.
Most recently I was featured in the documentary “Crazywise”- crazywisefilm.com. I was an advocate for needed changes in the treatment of mental illnesses in the United States.
I have experience as a counselor, manager, and a trainer in the private sector, and in community mental health program in Oregon, Missouri and Washington.
I have an M.S. from Southern Oregon University, and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington. I’ve developed and taught post-divorce parenting programs. Throughout my career, I’ve spoken to thousands of individuals, via workshops, seminars on parenting, relationships, crisis intervention, and working with the mentally ill. I’ve taught Mental Health First Aid courses in Washington and in Hawaii.
I value living by the Japanese proverb “Fall Seven Times. Stand Up Eight”.
