I received my Master of Arts degree from Bastyr University’s Graduate School of Applied Behavioral Science, the Leadership Institute of Seattle (www.lios.org), , with an emphasis on Systems Counseling. My Bachelor’s degree is in English Literature, from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (“LMHC”) in the state of Washington; my license number is LH00010384. I am also a State Approved Clinical Supervisor for counselors seeking licensure.
Since 2006 I have been an adjunct professor at Bastyr University (www.bastyr.edu) in Kenmore, WA, teaching various graduate and undergraduate courses in the Counseling and Health Psychology department. I’m also a Clinical Supervisor in the Counseling Department at Bastyr’s Center for Natural Health in Seattle (www.bastyrcenter.org).   .
Before launching my private practice, I worked for 5 years at a private mental health agency, Affiliated Mental Health Services, in downtown Seattle. There, I did psychotherapy, case management services, and some supervision duties, working primarily with clients suffering from chronic and severe mental illnesses: depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia.
I’m a professional member of the American Counseling Association, the Washington Mental Health Counselors Association, and of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

Prior to my work in therapy, I was the owner and principal photographer of Strong Images, Inc., an independent photography studio located in Aspen, Colorado. I specialized in commercial and editorial photography, and shot national ad campaigns for many Fortune 500 companies.
