B.A. in psychology, M.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy
I’m a native of Seattle and completed my education in Marriage and Family Therapy at Seattle Pacific University which frames how I do therapy, while my life experience brings depth of understanding to this work. For example, raising three children with ADHD taught me a lot more than I could learn in a master’s level course on children with behavioral and attention disorders, but combined the knowledge and experience work together to bring you the best care I can offer.
I enjoy the outdoors on foot and on the water. Being in nature is one way I have learned to keep my perspective and maintain my work/life balance.
I worked for five years in a mental health clinic with clients from many nations, many ethnicities, many religions, many languages, and cultures. I enjoy learning about people and the places they come from. My openness to who they are and my curiosity about how they see the world and their problems builds the understanding and connection necessary to do therapy. Gender and sexual orientation issues are also a welcome part of this work.
