Family
For 35 years, I have been married to my husband, Tim. We have four terrific children (plus two loved spouses of our kids) now ages 20-31; and five wonderful grandchildren. We enjoy spending time together, walking our three dogs, riding our tandem, walking on the beach, music, studying, and traveling. Our family is multi-cultural - which has been a very rich experience.

Experience
I was involved in Christian ministry for over 25 years (with children and adults) before officially entering the Clinical and Christian Counseling field. Ten of these years, I served together with my husband in collegiate, missions (Guatemala), and church ministry. Through this, I have come to believe that Jesus is our healer.

Since 2008, I have enjoyed sitting with people of any age (5 - 105) in private practice. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with the State of Washington.

Prior to becoming the Gateway Counseling Director, I worked as a Clinical Supervisor at Kitsap Mental Health Services in Bremerton for nearly seven years where I earned the recognition of Mental Health Professional (MHP).

Education
I earned my B.A. from Michigan State University (in Religious Studies, with minors in Theater, Non-Formal Education, and Spanish) and earned my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington. I regularly attend training to keep up-to-date with the latest research for therapeutic interventions.

Fees
My current fee for services is $70 per session for individuals; and $80 per session for couples and families. I offer a limited number of reduced-rate options for couples and family counseling for those who are facing financial hardship. I currently work with a limited number of insurance companies.
