I received my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in 2006 and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Washington. My license number is LH 60123241.
I have a passion for social change on both a macro and micro level and believe that individual transformation through therapy can benefit the world at-large.
My Masters training program prepared me to work with adults, children and adolescents from a wide range of cultures and orientations. I received extensive training in client-centered therapeutic interventions to help individuals and families find relief from grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction, and other forms of emotional suffering.
Before starting my private practice I worked in community and non-profit mental health and completed over 3,000 hours of supervised individual, group and family therapy with clients, ages seven to seventy.
I am continually pursuing additional clinical training in a number of areas including mindfulness, trauma treatment and clinical issues specific to children and adolescents. In addition, I have completed a post-graduate certificate training program on foster care and adoption-related therapy and I participate in consultation groups related to adoption issues and working with trans* clients.
I have a passion for social change on both a macro and micro level and believe that individual transformation through therapy can benefit the world at-large. Before becoming a therapist I spent 16 years working as a grassroots organizer for environmental justice issues and as a consultant to non-profit human service organizations, so I bring a strong social justice lens to my work. I have also performed in fringe theater and performance pieces around Seattle and really enjoy working with other creative people.
