I have a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Washington and I’m a Substance Use Disorder Professional in training… In my work I use a collaborative approach, and focus on student strengths and increasing their emotional awareness and capacity for solving the challenges they encounter. The services I provide are evidence-based, trauma-informed and culturally-sensitive. We might meet for just one session, or for ongoing therapy over several months, individually or in a group…I am available to work with parents, guardians, and other family members to provide parent education and support strategies, assist in resolving conflict, and make referrals to community resources.
