I am an adult Third Culture Kid who grew up in Ukarumpa, Papua New Guinea. While there, I saw first hand how important it is for teens to have access to mental health care wherever they are. That inspired me to become a counselor. After graduating from Ukarumpa International High School, I obtained a B.A. in Psychology from Taylor University, and then a Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Graduate School of Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary. Now I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Child Mental Health Specialist.
Since 2010, I have worked with hundreds of children, adults and families. I became a child trauma expert working at Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center, serving child victims of crime, especially sexual abuse and other forms of trauma. Now I am pleased to offer online counseling for third-culture kids, young adults and their families. Online counseling means help can begin right away.
