I have over 10 years of experience working in both private practice and public settings. I received my PhD and Masters in Clinical Psychology from Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara, CA. and my Masters in Counseling from Arizona State University. Prior to returning to school to receive my doctorate I spent eight years at Arizona State University developing and managing a holistic coaching program empowering both students and staff to overcome challenges and self-doubt, build on strengths and achieve their goals. I completed my doctoral internship at HealthPoint Community Health Center where I worked in collaboration with physicians to provide behavioral health counseling and consultation to patients with a wide array of mental and health-related concerns. In my private practice I continue address the important connection between the mind and body as a foundation for overall health and wellness.
My specialties include working with adults (18 years and older) dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship problems, self-esteem, life transition and health issues. Depending on your needs, our time together may include incorporating psychodynamic therapy, positive psychology, CBT, and mindfulness. I accept the following insurance plans: Premera, Regence, and First Choice Health.
