My Background

I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children in a variety of educational, residential, and clinical settings. Prior to my formal education in psychotherapy, I volunteered for a number of years at The Healing Center, a grief support community center in Seattle, WA, as a mentor and group facilitator for children, teens, and young adults.


During graduate school, I interned at Antioch Counseling Center in Seattle, WA and at Youth Eastside Services in Bellevue, WA. Additionally, I served as the student representative on the Washington Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (WAMFT) Board of Directors. 


After receiving my Master's degree, I began working as a psychotherapist at Youth Eastside Services; as a school based counselor in the Lake Washington School District; and as a part time counselor and facilitator at The Moyer Foundation's Camp Mariposa, a national addiction prevention and mentoring program for youth impacted by substance abuse in their families.


In addition to maintaining a private practice, I am a clinician and an associate with Eastside Psychological Associates, PLLC, I have served in several different roles on WAMFT Board of Directors, and I present on a variety of topics including grief and loss, ambiguous loss, and raising healthy adolescents.
