Education: MS (in progress) Seattle Pacific University, Marriage and Family Therapy; BA from Northwest University in Psychology

I am currently pursuing my master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy with a certificate in Medical Family Therapy here at SPU. My main interest areas are chronic and terminal illnesses and their effects on the family, as well as eating disorders and fighting weight stigma. I am passionate about the Health at Every Size (HAES) philosophy and promoting the acceptance of size diversity in the world around me. I believe in providing a warm, accepting, and safe environment where my clients can feel valued for who they are. I am excited to offer a space for students to process transitions, wrestle with issues, and grow into themselves
