"But one human heart goes out to another, undeterred by what lies between." W. Grimm


     I am a licensed mental health counselor associate. I received my theory and practical training in Relational/Interpersonal and Psychoanalytic technique. In my practice I employ a myriad of theories and techniques, which may include (in addition to the aforementioned approaches), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy, and others that I believe may be useful in our work together. My approach is commonly identified as psychodynamic.

     I completed my clinical internship at Compass Health working with adults who suffer from chronic mental illness.

     My vocational background is diverse with over twenty years of experience in business, as well as the arts. I consider my work as a therapist to be enriched by these years of experience, and also by my personal interests and passions. I am an active member of the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study, and I enjoy continuing education opportunities as they arise.
