Depression, Anxiety, & Trauma Specialist

Populations: Adults, Adolescents, Couples, & Children

Hello, my name is Jenn, and I have extensive experience and a passion for working with individuals, couples, children and families of all populations.

I specialize in working with those who have experienced trauma as well as those struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and other life stressors. I use attachment and strengths-based therapy modalities in addition to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Narrative therapy. 

I am a Licensed Independent clinical Social Work Associate (LSWAIC), having received my Bachelors in Social Work in 2003  and my Masters in Social Work in 2004, from Eastern Washington University. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). I am also a Registered Circle of Security Parent Educator.

Just for fun: I enjoy reading, camping, and spending time with my family.
