Delft lion, symbolizing protective grace and noble authority

I have been in full-time private practice for thirteen years. Previously, I worked in various settings, including a university counseling center, a hospice, a probation and parole office, and a community mental health agency. My experience includes work with a wide variety of clients struggling with a full spectrum of psychological issues. I have sought out extensive training in depth psychology, including a two-year professional seminar at the Pacific Northwest Society of Jungian Analysts, a two-year professional seminar at the North Pacific Institute of Analytical Psychology, and the one-year Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis. Currently, I am training to become a Jungian analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of the Pacific Northwest.
