My Philosophy of Care

Growing up in a family with parents who had severe mental illness helped me develop an interest at a young age in how to help people who were in so much pain. I knew there were things that I could do to help them feel better faster and come back to center. I also could see things that they could do to help themselves...but often didn't.

After leaving home at 17 to go to college I began having challenges with my own PTSD symptoms from growing up in a chaotic environment. I studied math because working math problems always helped my nervous system calm down. Later I began to see a counselor at my college who helped me see how thought patterns contributed to my depression.

After I got married and had four children some symptoms arose again. I struggled with an eating disorder. This time I discovered movement therapy was really helpful for me. Eventually I found InterPlay and found improvising in community gave me the resilience I needed to be able to raise my children and teach mathematics. InterPlay was the best teacher training I had ever experienced. It also helped me feel mentally healthy! I felt connected to community and able to be creative!

While teaching math one of our students developed a brain tumor and eventually passed away. It was a huge loss for our whole community. I found that I was more interested in the emotional well being of my students than in their math skills and that students were coming to my classroom after hours to share about their feels and challenges.

The following year I decided to return to college to pursue a master's degree in counseling at Seattle University while I trained to become an InterPlay leader. It was a great combination, and I continue to combine leading InterPlay on some weekends and being a counselor for individuals and couples Monday through Thursday. The combination is very rewarding.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit
