I received my bachelor’s degree in journalism from Seattle University and a master’s degree in clinical psychology from the Washington School of Professional Psychology. My work and training with organizations like Planned Parenthood and the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study has fundamentally informed my practice, as has my clinical experience working with university counseling centers, in-patient therapy for disordered eating, and community mental health facilities. With over a decade of mental health experience, I also coach new therapists with their businesses. I am constantly seeking out new skills and have most recently completed training in walking therapy and Discernment Counseling for couples on the brink.
A proud Seattleite, my writing has appeared in publications like The Stranger and Seattle Metropolitan Magazine. As a child, I was nicknamed "The Candy Queen" for my discerning opinions about all things sweet and eventually had my own monthly dessert column! Out of office, you can find me nursing my back pain from crouching in my garden, catching up on reality tv with my pups, Jefferson and Franklin. Let's Work Together
