I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Child Mental Health Specialist in private practice.  I also do presentations on topics including: Suicidal Ideation, Self-Care, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs),  Mental Health & Social Media and Secondary Trauma.  I am a former Mental Health Evaluator in the ER at Seattle Children's Hospital who assessed patients for suicidal and homicidal ideation.  I also co-facilitated Suicide Assessment and Treatment trainings for the medical staff at Children's and within the Seattle area..  

 

I am a solution-focused clinician with a direct, casual, yet interactive approach. I help my clients learn positive ways to manage negative thought patterns, unwanted behavioral responses, process experiences that create fear, shame and sadness.  I help my clients love and accept themselves again OR, for the very first time.

Before becoming a therapist, I spent several years working in film, television and casting as a producer and director.  I was also an actor, hosted a children's show and performed standup comedy.  

I have a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, Los Angeles.  I am a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists as well as the Producers Guild of America. 

This fall I am releasing my first book on relationship estrangement titled "Mourning The Living."  My next book will look inside the realm of Adolescent Suicidal Thoughts and Behaviors.
