I am a licensed clinical psychologist and received my Ph.D. in Developmental Clinical Psychology from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania. Prior to that, I obtained my BA from Swarthmore College with a major in psychology.
I currently practice in the greater Seattle area providing individual therapy to children, adolescents, and young adults who wish to address acute or long-term trauma. I approach each client through a developmental lens, understanding that concerns manifest differently depending on one’s age and developmental stage at both the time of trauma and the time of treatment.
Much of my training and work has focused on children who have been sexually abused or on adolescents/young adults (age 15-35) who have either experienced sexual abuse in their childhood or more recent sexual assault. I am well-versed in Trauma Focused CBT and use elements of that as well as STAIR/NST and Mindfulness CBT in sessions.
I am a member of the following organizations:
- American Psychological Association
- International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies
- Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs
