About me

I am a Washington State Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with the Washington State Department of Health having earned my Master of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Southern California. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers. I began my formal study of psychology and psychotherapy as an outcome of seeking my own solutions to life issues as they emerged in early and mid-adulthood, including a late ADHD diagnosis. My experience includes working with children, adolescents, adults, families and groups in community-based as well as outpatient treatment settings, both in person and virtually. My work, prior to entering private practice, focused on serving children/adolescents and their families in community based therapy. In private practice I see adults with concerns related to depression, stress and anxiety, adjustments/life transitions, relational problems, family conflict, ADHD, school/work difficulties, trauma and coping with life changes.

I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
