     Before coming to Seattle, I was the clinical team leader of an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center for adults in Philadelphia, PA. I moved to Seattle to pursue my graduate training and earned a Master's degree in Existential-Phenomenological Psychology from Seattle University. I spent a couple of years in a community mental health setting where I worked with teenagers and adults in individual psychotherapy. In addition to practicing therapy, I am also a researcher who is involved in projects that seek to offer a better understanding of different parts of the human experience. Right now, I'm working on a project exploring the experience of envy.

     Throughout my education, training, and work with a wide range of clients, I have become especially interested and experienced in:

  • Helping clients to work through trauma
  • Anxiety-related issues like panic attacks, trouble sleeping or concentrating, etc.
  • Dealing with violence and bullying
  • Managing academic pressure
  • Gender and sexual identity
  • Helping with transitions (e,g, the transition from middle to high school, or high school to college)
  • Problems with body image and eating
  • Sexual trauma
  • Depression and its many manifestations: isolation, lack of motivation, hopelessness
