I work with individual adults & couples of all genders and sexual orientations. I combine psychodynamic, existential & transpersonal approaches in my work.
I have 35 years of clinical experience working with individuals, couples and groups. I have been an adjunct faculty member at Antioch University Seattle in the Graduate Psychology program for the past 24 years.
I am trained in a variety of models including analytic psychology inclusive of dream analysis, and humanistic & transpersonal approaches. I am trained in Lifespan Integration and CIMBS, utilizing these approaches when appropriate. I incorporate somatically informed approaches in service of supporting more integration of thoughts and feelings into one’s felt sense, in the moment.
As a white, cisgender, woman of privilege, I am committed to deepening my understanding of what it means to be an effective ally to indigenous and people of color. I see it as my responsibility to make efforts toward reparations for the harm that has been done and continues to be done due to systemic racism and white supremacy. To that end, I offer a reduced fee to people of color. If you are an indigenous or POC, please know that I charge half my regular fee as a starting place. If this amount adds burden to your economy, we will discuss further reduction.
I have been supervising students at Antioch University Seattle's Clnical Psychology Program since 1996. I act as liasion between students in their internships and their case consultation classes teaching the consultation classes, as well as Theory & Practice classes, which prepare students for clinical work with clients. I supervise post graduates as they work toward gaining their hours for full licensure in Washington state.
My approach is largely on the self of the therapist, working with how the clinical concerns of clients affect the therapist's own personal experience regardless of clincal orientation. I work at very practical levels as well, holding the concerns of the new therapist, eg - boundaries, scheduling issues,
