"We shall not cease
from exploration

And the end of
all our exploring

Will be to arrive
where we started

And know the place
for the first time"

about me
 

I received my Masters of Arts in Counseling with an emphasis in Mental Health from Seattle University and my Bachelor of Arts from Whitman College.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Washington State Approved Supervisor, Child Mental Health Specialist and a Mental Health Professional.*

In addition to my private practice, I teach in an adjunct capacity and provide clinical supervision in Seattle University’s Graduate Program in Counseling and School Psychology. I served as the Field Placement Liaison for Seattle University’s Graduate Program in Counseling and School Psychology for five years.

I have experience providing therapy at community mental health agencies, as well as doing advocacy work for and direct service with homeless women, families, and youth.
