Hello and welcome! To assist you in making an informed therapy or counseling choice, here is a little information about me.
In 1999, I was licensed in Arizona, moved to Seattle in 2001, and have been a licensed psychologist in Washington since 2002. I earned a Bachelor's Degree from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte (1993) and a Doctoral Degree from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (1999).
In 2010, I served at the University of Washington's Resident and Fellow Wellness Program, offering individual and couples therapy to physicians-in-training.
Since opening a private practice in 2002, I have helped numerous people, just like you, build the lives of abundance they deserve. I have experience working with a number of issues including (but not limited to):
Though individual symptoms can vary, over the years, I have found that most of us are simply trying to figure out how to be fully-awake, alive human beings. I tend to be the best fit for people who are open to the idea that our problems hold the key to crucial transformation. To learn more about this approach, click here.
From February 2016 - May 2017, I served as Associate Producer of Death: The Podcast. Death: tp explored how death and all endings connect us more deeply with life.
My therapy practice has been located in the Phinney - Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle since 2011. I love the cozy vibe of Phinney - Greenwood, with its nearby mom-and-pop businesses, coffee shops, and restaurants. Clients often remark about how convenient it is to shop or grab a quick bite before or after their counseling session--everything is within walking distance!
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family, singing, playing guitar, cooking, skiing, and hiking. I am also a writer who has contributed to online forums and publications including: TinyBuddha.com, HavingTime.com, Healthy Living Massachusetts Magazine, BluntMoms.com, and ParentMap Magazine. You can also find out more about my writing through my blog.
