Practice Experience:

I have worked in a variety of settings for over 15 years, including youth wilderness programs, public schools, outpatient clinics and over 4 years as a Behavioral Health Consultant at Yakima Pediatrics Associates.

Philosophy of Care:

I engage with patients and by identifying and using their core values, unique capabilities and culture, create positive behavioral change. I hope to foster emotionally safe relationships within families and communities. I work collaboratively with providers and other community resources to help families thrive and grow so that they have the opportunity to design satisfying and joyful lives.

Medical Interests:

The impact of trauma, attachment and mental health on chronic stress and disease in children and families.

Personal Interests:

I am the mother of nine children and six grandchildren. I love being in the mountains with family and friends- climbing, biking and hiking. Dancing, yoga and reading restore and uplift me.
