I come to this field with a personal and work history rich in experience outside of the therapy world.

I was born and raised in the Northwest and have lived in Seattle for nearly three decades. I received my masters of arts in psychology from Seattle University.  S.U.’s existential-phenomenology program places equal emphasis on the fields of philosophy and psychology with a priority placed on ethics and social justice. The program balances academic rigor with practical experience. I completed my undergraduate work (B.A.) at Washington State University where I majored in communications with an emphasis in journalism. Art history is another of my interests and I’ve completed considerable course work in that field as well. I am a strong believer in lifelong learning which is one of the things that led me to this work. Outside of my work in-session, I am constantly reading and training to best address the wide variety of issues and personalities coming into my practice. I also believe it’s important for therapists to remain culturally and socially relevant and do my best to engage in experiences and knowledge outside the field as well.
I believe the best therapists are well-rounded and possess a variety of personal and work experience outside the field of psychotherapy.
My recent work history includes a number of years in marketing, sales, and business operations mostly in the field of fine dining. I also spent several years working in the social service sector here in Seattle. In addition to private practice, I worked for a year with the adult population at Sound Mental Health, one of the state’s largest community mental health organizations.

Over the years I have engaged in my own personal therapy for a variety of issues and have experienced an array of therapeutic styles. As a result, I have an understanding of how it feels to be “on the other side of the couch,” so to speak.

From 2011, until recently, I served on the board for Foster Kinship, a non-profit serving families fostering the children of relatives.
