Thank you for taking a few moments to visit my site. Here you will find information about the professional health services I offer as a licensed psychologist.
I am a licensed psychologist and have practiced psychology in the Queen Anne area of Seattle, WA for over 20 years. I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 1981 from an APA-accredited program at the University of Montana. My pre-doctoral internship was completed at USC School of Medicine in Los Angeles, CA. I have also completed a post-doctoral fellowship in child and adolescent psychotherapy at the San Fernando Valley Child Guidance Center in Northridge, CA. Prior to opening my private practice in 1988, I worked in community mental health and also at the University of Washington in their student health center.
While I have a generalist practice, I have a special interest in working with individuals with:
Providing a safe and confidential place for you to talk about your concerns is my primary goal. In our first appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss what has triggered your decision to seek therapy, ask lots of questions and decide whether I am the right therapist for you. I look on therapy as a collaborative, exploratory effort, and while I do not direct clients, I hope our discussions will help you to understand yourself better, feel better, and find some answers to the difficulties you are bringing to therapy. The rest of this site contains more information about my background and work as a practicing psychologist.
I offer both short and long-term psychotherapy for individual adults. My therapeutic orientation would best be described as eclectic, as it draws on several different theoretical perspectives, including Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based approaches to therapy. In addition to my work in private practice, I am also a clinical faculty member of the Psychology Department at the University of Washington.
