I have had years of training and supervision in a Relational Psychoanalytic therapeutic orientation. This means that I am working to be attuned to what is happening in the room relationally and can speak to that as a route to your growth and development. I have also been influenced by Internal Family Systems and parts work, which means I work to bring your awareness to the many different aspects of your internal world. I find this stance helps us talk about how well you are getting along with yourself. 


In working with couples, I work from the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT). I find that this modality helps couples to understand how to be in each others care in a way that creates a securely functioning relationship.


I work with my supervisees in such a way that invites you as a therapist to grow into the clinician that best fits who you are as a person. It is my belief that as a supervisor, I need to be a safe place for you to talk about what you're feeling insecure about in your practice as well as what excites you about your work. I work to help you explore what is happening relationally with the people you are working with and how you can best attend to those dynamics.


I am a Washington State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LH60283952) as well as a Washington State Approved Supervisor. I hold a Bachelor of Social Work degree from Miami University and a Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Mars Hill Graduate School (now The Seattle School for Theology and Psychology).  I am a member of the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study and the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. I have completed a year long program  in Relational Theory in Clinical Practice through the Stephen Mitchell Relational Study Center. I have an ongoing involvement and commitment to consultation, study groups, and professional training in order to continue to learn and grow as a therapist.
