My Philosophy

I believe that human's have a tendency towards growth. Within each person, there is a drive towards creating a rich and meaningful life. Oftentimes, this life we want may feel impossible due to the variety of stressors and struggles that accompany one's life process. These struggles (e.g. or pain, sadness anxiety) are part of the deal. However, they do not have to stop you from living the life you want to! I take an acceptance based, client centered approach to aid in your health and well being.

My Education and training

I received my Doctorate of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver Graduate School of Professional Psychology (accredited by the American Psychological Association). Throughout my graduate training, I obtained advanced training in behavioral, psychodynamic, and cognitive therapies, theories, and research. I provided individual, group, and couples therapy, as well as psychological assessment services, in a variety of settings (e.g. community mental health, university counseling, assessment private practice, school clinic,  outpatient services for criminal offenders). As part of this training I completed a year-long APA-accredited Internship at Washington State University Counseling and Psychological Services. I completed a Counseling and Sport Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Washington within the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. 

I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Washington (License #: PY60633773). Being licensed means that I passed a national licensing examination and a state written examination along with other state training requirements determined by the Washington State Examining Board of Psychology.
