Counseling and Consultation
How will we work together?
Are you someone that did all the things successful adults are supposed to do, and yet something is missing? Are you feeling as though you do everything for others? Would you like to have relationships where you are seen and heard? Do you have a calling to understand and help heal injustice? Are you curious about mindfulness, holistic health, and spiritual development?
I have created effective skills in my last 17 years of helping people who are at a turning point in their life. I specialize in working with adults, adolescents and substance use. I have found there is more to people's life path that is the foundation to their ultimate healing. My counseling style is psychodynamic- meaning I listen for patterns in your life that are current that connect to your earliest developmental experiences. This approach is trauma-informed and attachment-oriented and built upon my 19 years of clinical experience and research working with addiction. I am LBGTQ and I work with cisgender, transgender and nonbinary individuals.
I am a certified yoga teacher and yoga therapist and I find that many of the practices I have learned in my 23 years of practicing help my clients with lifestyle and mindfulness life coping strategies. My integration of yoga, spiritual healing,
and the Enneagram are tools we might work with in conjunction with the counseling relationship we build together. My clients tell me that I am both supportive and directive, in-depth and fun, analytical and creative. I have examined my own privilege and culture and invite continual conversations about how this shows up in your community and mental health. Ultimately I am here to support your emotional, mental and spiritual wellness.
Payment & Fees
I charge $160 per hour for my services. Sessions will be conducted over telehealth or in my office at 120 Pear Street NE Olympia, Washington, USA.
If you are paying out of pocket, we can discuss sliding fee options. I can accept cash, check, Health Savings Accounts, and credit cards in session using Square Cash. Payment is due at time of service.
I am in network with Premera and Lifewise. If your insurance is out of network, then you are responsible for payment each session and I can provide insured clients with a receipt which they can submit with a claims form to their insurance company for reimbursement. Check with your insurance company to determine what their rate of coverage is for out-of-network mental health services. This will help you understand what the full cost to you will be.
You can call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask if you are covered by an “out-of-network Licensed Mental Health Counselor.” I do not interact with insurance companies that I am out of network with on the clients’ behalf except under extreme circumstances. Your therapy sessions will also apply towards your health insurance deductibles. If you have a Health Savings Account, you may use those funds for your therapy.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please make every effort to notify me at least 48 hours in advance. Thank you!
I have extensive expertise in substance use disorders, codependency, yoga therapy, and trauma. In addition I have training and education in Motivational Interviewing and the Enneagram. I work with individuals and businesses who want to deepen their knowledge on these topics.
I am an approved supervisor for Licensed Mental Health Counselors in Washington State. I am happy to work with you on your licensing hours, and encourage you to find another licensee to share your supervision time with to reduce the hourly cost. Please contact me to receive a copy of my supervision contract. We can discuss this over our initial session which I require prior to working towards your licensing hours.
I offer individual healing sessions by appointment. I lead groups and classes on the topics of the Enneagram and spiritual healing (next groups will begin in September 2021). I also offer healing sessions based on my experience in yoga, yoga therapy, and shamanic healing. Please email me if you would like additional information.
This is a 9 week online and interactive course for people looking to grow further into spiritual, emotional, and physical practices. This course offers an overview of many healing and wellness foundations (including yoga and the Enneagram) that offer attendees an ability to learn what practices spark their purpose and growth more. The class is offered in multiple ways, offering group, one-on-one, and self paced learning.
As a student, I have over 30 years of experience learning the body, mind, and spirit modalities that I teach. Not only have I found these practices beneficial to my own wellness, but I have over my 17 years as a counselor offered these modalities to my clients as well. As a professor in online graduate programs, I know how to lead an online course in a way that is technologically professional and engaging. The course will be a fun way to explore many pathways to healing, learn about you, and allow you to connect with like minded people!
Dates and registration coming soon.
This 9 month course is a consultation and virtual education group geared at teaching counselors and allied professionals how to use the Enneagram to support ongoing work with clients. The class will meet monthly over Zoom and all participants will have access to the virtual class space. No experience with the Enneagram required, just a desire to learn how to deepen your understanding of how the Enneagram can help you connect more with yourself and learn how to work with the deepest motivations of your clients.
Dates and registration coming soon.
