About

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.

I also provide family therapy addressing a variety of concerns, such as identifying and resolving interpersonal conflict, managing life transitions (moving, divorce, new baby, etc), and developing more successful discipline strategies. When working with families, I lean heavily on the theory that members cannot be looked at as isolated individuals but rather as part of a living, changing family unit. Therefore, conflicts are not caused by one member but are influenced largely by the interactions between and history of all of those within the family.

 

I am a member of the following organizations:

  • American Psychological Association
  • International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies
  • Washington State Psychological Association
