Over my clinical career, I have worked with clients in clinical, residential, and educational settings. With couples, I utilize the techniques of Gottman Method Couples Therapy: I have completed the Level 3 Practicum Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and I am passionate about this research-based method of helping couples achieve the relationship they desire.
I particularly enjoy helping couples and families struggling with the impact of OCD and anxiety disorders.
I currently serve as the President of OCD Washington, and I'm a senior lecturer for Antioch University Seattle. I'm a Washington State Approved Supervisor, and an AAMFT Supervisor candidate.
After earning my Master’s Degree in LGBT Affirmative Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles, I relocated to Seattle in 2009. I enjoy gardening on overcast days, building Lego, playing tabletop games, and training with my aspiring therapy dog (an enthusiastic Labrador).
Full disclosure: I am a brony, Whovian, and Browncoat. I tend to practice using CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy), narrative therapy, and a solution-oriented style. This means that I want to make sure our work together helps you identify and achieve your goals.
