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.
