psychotherapy for individuals and couples

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor ( LH 60551160) in the state of Washington and received my Master’s in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School. I completed a year-long internship with Seattle Therapy Alliance where I provided individual therapy to women from a primarily psychoanalytic, feminist orientation before transitioning to private practice in 2013. 

I also have a history as a professional photographer and hold a degree in Photojournalism from Western Kentucky University. During my graduate training, I earned certification in PhotoTherapy in Vancouver, BC and have worked with clients in creating photographs and image interpretation as a way to access and understand subconscious workings in the mind. As part of my personal creative history, I am grateful to have traveled extensively doing humanitarian work and documenting other cultures, using my lens to engage others’ stories. These experiences continue to inform how I consider and interact with the people who see me.

Lastly, I often bring my dog, Sailor, to the office. My clients have the option to include her affection in their process during the clinical hour. She is a two year old Border Collie/Pointer mix with a gentle and loving disposition, and will gladly sleep on the toes of anyone who lets her.
