"We cannot change our past, but we can change how our past affects us today."
I believe counseling is a collaborative effort. You are the expert on yourself – you know what you have been through and things you have tried to make things better. I know ways to help people to change, but I cannot just change you. By us working together, exploring how you look at things and how you think about things, together we can come up with strategies to empower you to change from within. We can work through and come to terms with our past so we can refocus on what is important to us today so we can make healthy choices for a better future.
I consider myself a generalist so am comfortable addressing several issues including depression, anxiety, behavior issues, grief and loss, adjustment issues, anger, conflict in relationships as well as other issues. I provide individual and family counseling to ages 6 and up, as well as couple counseling. It's sad when so many people suffer from depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. I chose to get into behavioral health because I really believe humans have the ability within them to bring about healthy change. They just need some help and guidance sometimes.
Why The Everett Clinic?
I was very happy when I learned of The Everett Clinic’s values and their work culture. Doing what is right for the patient is their core value. The Everett Clinic also works hard to have a culture of being positive, supportive and proactive. This results in a healthy workplace that makes it that much easier to help the patients become healthy as well.
