WHEN I’M NOT AT GREY SKY COUNSELING, YOU CAN FIND ME…
Riding bikes from park to park in Seattle with my family while we hunt for the best pastries!
MY FAVORITE TED LASSO CHARACTER IS…AND WHY?
Hard question, I’m leaning towards Roy Kent. He is unabashedly himself while also being willing to learn... even if he can’t stand it.
WHAT IS YOUR DIAMOND DOG TITLE?
CSO: Chief Sneaker Officer
WHEN I NEED A GOOD DOSE OF SELF-CARE, I…
Play pickleball if it's dry or hunt for something to refurbish or resell.
WHAT LED YOU TO YOU TO THE FIELD OF COUNSELING?
My own therapeutic journey. As I experienced freedom from the shackles of deception and addiction while also beginning to feel a sense wholeness I never knew was missing.
WHAT UNIQUE SKILLS, EDUCATION, AND/OR EXPERTISE DO YOU BRING TO YOUR ROLE AS A THERAPIST?
I'm gifted in using imagery and connecting peoples words to pictures and scenes that I believe brings a robust view of their own experience. Also, I bring an understanding of how truth and the lies we often tell ourselves reveals some of the deepest wounds we didn't even know we had. I believe telling the truth is ultimately what brings freedom to our lives, and I love helping my clients tell their truth(s).
WHO/WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
People who have the courage to be honest and vulnerable are so inspirational to me.
WHAT IS ONE SMALL BABY-STEP PEOPLE CAN DO TO IMPROVE THEIR RELATIONSHIPS?
Try using the the phrase “Can you help me understand _____?” rather than, “Why did you move the laundry over to the dryer and not start it…AGAIN?” I can’t imagine this being a problem for any person or couple. :)
