“I am a counselor with an extensive history working with children, adolescents, and their families. I have also worked a great deal with adults, not only through my work with parents and guardians, but also as clients! My priorities in counseling lie with building a relationship with my clients through talk, play, and collaboration. My hope is to sit with my clients as they work to develop a deeper understanding of their relationship with themselves, others, and the world.”

More About Andi
I was drawn to Washington state after spending most of my childhood growing up in Florida. As a teenager, I was very involved with YMCAs, where I began my work with young children. As I went on to get my bachelor’s degree and master’s degree, I had the opportunity to assist families as they navigated difficult family dynamics. Most recently, I’ve had success with conducting therapy sessions for children, and as a program therapist providing group counseling and psychoeducation.
Outside of counseling, my interests lie in the outdoors, local music, biking, and spending time with loved ones. I recently started my 200-hour yoga teacher training, as yoga has been a tool I’ve used for my own self-care for over a decade. I’ve been pleased to learn about the restorative and healing powers of yoga, and in many ways, yoga has advanced my counseling practice. Breathing exercises and body/mind awareness are just some tools I have refined through my yoga studies.
