Most insurance accepted.

I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the APA accredited Graduate School of Psychology at the University of Denver. I completed my clinical training at Tualatin Valley Mental Health Center in Portland, Oregon. Following internship I completed a postdoctoral Fellowship in inpatient psychology at the Seattle Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Seattle. As a licensed psychologist in the State of Washington I have successfully completed both a national and state qualifying examination.

Therapy, as I practice it, is a collaboration between client and therapist which attempts to understand and change patterns of feeling, thinking, and behaving which limit one's capacity to work productively and engage fully in relationships. My areas of specialty are in the treatment of depression, anxiety and phobias, work related stress, couples counseling and relationship problems. I also have specialized training in substance abuse treatment/addictions. In general I follow an orientation which integrates theory and technique from a number of schools in order to tailor treatment to each person's unique situation.

I work as a member of a multi-specialty group practice which is located on Capitol Hill near Swedish Hospital. It is easy to reach and there is ample parking. I am a preferred or approved provider on most major insurance panels and also offer a sliding fee scale in some cases.

I am a member of the American Psychological Association and the Washington State Psychological Association.
