I obtained a Master's in Psychology with a concentration in Couple and Family Therapy from Antioch University Seattle in 2014. I also received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles in 2011. My therapeutic work is informed by my 25 plus years as a documentary photographer working on social justice issues that many marginalized and disenfranchised groups face.

My clinical experience began in 2013, working in community mental health. I currently work with children, youth, and families in a variety of settings including private practice, school-based services, and in community mental health. I am also a clinical fellow of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

I have experience providing therapy to individuals, couples and families. I treat people with concerns including anxiety, depression, attachment issues, anger management, trauma, self-harm, identity issues, and gender questioning. I utilize a systemic, humanistic, emotionally-focused perspective with individuals, couples and families working through conflict, life transitions, blended families, grief, and loss. Additionally, I use evidenced based approaches in helping parents struggling with their child's behavioral difficulties, academic underachievement, and peer relationship problems. I am religion friendly, an LGBTQ ally, and poly-friendly. 


I am an AAMFT Approved Supervisor and a Washington State Supervisor.
I provide supervision to both LMFTAs and LMHCAs.
