I worked in public and private agencies with a diverse population. I studied under experienced clinicians while working at OHSU, Garlington Center, and Cascadia.I worked at county and state mental health facilities in Washington and Oregon. I was licensed in Washington in 2003 and started my private practice the same year. I am also licensed to practice in Oregon.
From 2007-2009, I participated in professional seminars in Analytical Psychology offered by the Pacific Northwest Society of Jungian Analysts (PNSJA). After completing that program, I was accepted into the training program at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zürich, Switzerland. I completed my studies with a Diplomate in Analytical Psychology in 2013. My thesis, “The Psychodynamic Body: Posture and Form as Symbol in the Individuation Process” explores how the psychological complex becomes embodied in muscles and tissues and effects posture and movement.
I am a member of PNSJA, IAAP (International Association of Analytical Psychologists), and on the Alumni Board of the C.G. Jung Institute–Zürich.
I have been helping people heal from emotional and mental pain and trauma for 20 years. I believe in the efficacy of mental health treatment to empower and improve people’s lives.
