About Me

About MeOur sessions will be mostly about you and our interaction together, so here is a bit about me. I am a Licensed Mental Heath Counselor. My Master of Arts is in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in Seattle, WA.

I became a psychotherapist because I am passionate about people and the transformation that can happen in healthy functioning relationships.  I find it an honor to work with men and women navigating through the trials and joys of life.

Six years of my life were spent living and working in Central America which broadened my mind and worldview to the suffering and joy of our human existence. During that time I worked with adults, adolescents and children who were in extreme life conditions without much access to sufficient support or care. I saw and experienced transformation in many lives.

My undergraduate work is in education with a specialty in art. Seventeen years of teaching in many different capacities with students of all ages, has also taught me much about people and transformation. I believe that art, education and psychotherapy are all creative processes, and have much to offer one another. All are in the business of transformation.

Along with my private practice, I spent 3 years working at Vashon Youth and Family Services with clients of all ages and life situations. On a regular basis, I receive consultation and I work with consult groups to further my education and practice in my field. As a member of the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study, I regularly attend conferences and trainings to further enhance my education and therapeutic work with clients. I am also a member of and on the Board for the Puget Sound Group Psychotherapy Network.

I look forward to meeting you.
