Jungian Psychoanalyst

About Me

While living in New York and New Jersey, I worked in publishing and the law before moving to Oregon and enrolling in the Counseling Psychology program at Lewis and Clark College in 1994. My course work focused on psychological development and mental health treatment. I received an M.A. in 1996.

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.
