A Northwest native, I have lived in the Seattle area for over a decade, after moving from Portland, Oregon, to pursue my graduate degree in social work.
I have worked in a range of settings, from child welfare and dependency to cancer support to one-on-one therapy. Each position has helped me to develop my understanding of how we as humans experience and process a range of events, from the joy of remission to the sorrow of losing a loved one to substance abuse, illness, or estrangement. I incorporate many practices into my approach to therapy and ultimately work with the client to determine the best fit for them. I am trained in traditional approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and humanistic, psychodynamic approaches, as well as newer methods such as Lifespan Integration (level 1).
