Overview

I have been a psychotherapist since 1994, with a BS in Psychology and a BA in History from the University of Washington, and an MA in Psychology from Antioch University. I have worked in various Mental Health settings, including as a supervisor at the King County Crisis Line for ten years and recently at Harborview doing crisis intervention and psychotherapy.



My therapy style, developed over 25 years, combines CBT, Gestalt, Ret CAMS, and other evidence-based interventions. I believe in an active therapy approach, where the client defines their own success. The client- therapist relationship is crucial to the change process. I have learned the majority of my education from working with clients and enjoy working with diverse backgrounds and challenging problems. Personally, I am an extrovert with passions in basketball, backpacking, music, and gardening. I believe finding your passion is essential for personal growth.
