Licensed Mental Health Counselor
I have worked in both inpatient psychiatry as well as private practice for over ten years (established in 2008). For five years I worked as a clinical therapist at an inpatient facility, which gave me a profound respect for the chemical side of our brain structure and how essential medications can be to our health and also a discerning eye as to when medications may not be the answer to our problems. Simultaneously, my experience in private practice and relational psychoanalytic thought have taught me how deeply our relationships and environments impact our lives in ways we may not understand until we listen closely. Alongside my professional development I have invested heavily in my own growth and interests through my own full relational psychoanalysis, yoga teacher training, serving on the board of the Puget Sound Group Psychotherapy Network and studying the connection of healing our physical and energetic bodies in synchronicity with our minds. Outside of work I try to spend as much time as possible in the healing presence of nature with my family and friends.
