I am a licensed clinical psychologist with experience treating a wide range of presenting concerns within adults, teens, families, and couples; these include anxiety, depression, relationship problems, identity development, grief and loss, and trauma. My areas of specialty include eating disorders and couples work. My goal is to provide a healing and therapeutic space for you to process and explore your feelings, and develop skills to feel more effective and well in your everyday experience.
I see therapy as a collaborative process. Together we will identify and establish your goals for treatment, cultivate a safe and healing space, and work to bring you to where you feel more positively. Our work together may be short-term and solution-focused, or it may develop into long-term, attachment-based therapy. You can expect me to be genuine, warm, and non-judgmental; I would like for you to feel like our therapeutic relationship is a good “fit,” so that you can be open and feel safe to explore and face challenging feelings and experiences. I strive to meet you where you are at. Therefore, the length, frequency, and structure of appointments will be determined by your needs and goals, as well as how comfortable you are with the therapeutic process.
All of my training and experience has been in Washington. My educational background includes a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Washington and an M.A. in Psychology and a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Seattle Pacific University.
