I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (Washington State License: LH 60241738) with a Masters of Psychology from Antioch University Seattle. I have been practicing for nine years. I became a therapist because I want my work to be something that helps me and others live happier, more fulfilling lives. I work with adults, teenagers and couples.
Having dealt with a severe inner critic much of my life I am dedicated to helping others deal effectively with the same. Helping others free themselves from misplaced guilt and punishing toxic shame is my passion. Many people enjoy positive feelings about themselves. I wish this for all.
I worked as a project, program and line manager in the corporate world for twenty plus years. That ended in 2006 when I realized I needed a change to something more relevant to people's lives and relationships. I am married for the second time. We recently celebrated thirty four years together. I love dogs and most cats. I bike, hike and cook. Should we ever work together you will for sure leave knowing six or more types of pasta! I love olive oil, garlic, onions and tomatoes, though not necessarily in that order.
