I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC, License #LH60444329) and an Approved Supervisor in the state of Washington. I started into this field in my undergrad work, receiving a BA in Psychology and then an MA in Counseling Psychology.


Throughout these last fifteen years, I have worked in a few different non-profit organizations, alongside my ten years in private practice. As a Mental Health Director in Shoreline, WA, I supervised a team of therapists and managed programs for the local community.

In addition, I am a member of the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study, Seattle Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (SPSI), a trainer for YMSM + LGBT ATTC Center of Excellence, and a graduate of the Addressing Health Disparities Leadership Program offered through the National Council.


"I think for many of us who have been traumatized, which is kind of all of us, to some degree, whether you've had primary trauma or secondary trauma, to witnessing trauma...we've all been part of trauma. I think, at an early age, or at any point in our life, it separates us from our bodies and from ourselves, and we progressively become more and more detached from our hearts, from our ability to be compassionate, from our connection to our own bodies, but also from the Earth and from each other. And I think, for me, the journey back to my body has taken me many, many years to get back inside...And there's been many paths to get back...But by the end of it, I was back inside. And what it's made me aware of is the more inside ourselves we are, the more connected we are to other people and to the plights of other people, to the suffering of other people, but also to the Earth itself."
