Background

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Issaquah, WA.  I received my BA from Middlebury College and a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University.  I interned at Youth Eastside Services, counseling children, teens and families at the agency.  I also served as a school counselor at Newport Heights Elementary School and counseled parents in the YES Aware Program for parents with addicted teens. I have also had the pleasure of teaching parent education at Bellevue College and leading groups for PEPS (Program for Early Parenting Support). 

I serve on the board of trustees for the Children’s Garden School and PTA of Issaquah Valley Elementary School. Before counseling, I enjoyed a career in the high tech and outdoor industries, as business development manager at InfoSpace, Inc., co-founder of Altrec.com, and research analyst at REI (Recreational Equipment, Inc.).  I enjoy living in Issaquah with my husband of 14 years and two sons and getting outside with them to hike, camp and ski. 

In my private practice, I enjoy working with couples and children 12 and under.  In my work with children, I enjoy a particular focus on  ADD/ADHD, behavior, anger management, and the quirkiness that often comes with giftedness.  With couples, I enjoy the process of building healthy ways of interacting and communicating.
