I received my Master of Arts degree from Bastyr University's Graduate School of Applied Behavioral Science, the Leadership Institute of Seattle (now Saybrook University), 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.
