Hello and welcome to my practice! I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Washington State who specializes in working with children, teens, and young adults across the neurodevelopmental spectrum. I graduated from Seattle Pacific University with my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, an APA-accredited program. For the past ten years, I have focused my training on better understanding this full spectrum of neurodevelopmental differences, including advanced training in diagnosing and treating autism, ADHD, those on the fetal alcohol spectrum, learning differences, and co-occurring conditions, such as OCD, anxiety, and depression. As opposed to pathologizing these differences, I instead use a neurodiversity affirming model to view them as natural variations in human neurology. I am LGBTQ+ affirming and have specialized training in diagnosing autism in females and older children, teens, and young adults. I have trained and worked with experts in the field at sites such as Seattle Children's Autism Center, University of Washington, and University of New Mexico. I opened my practice in 2020 to serve families throughout Washington State.
I understand that even in a pandemic (and perhaps especially due to these unique circumstances), you or your child may continue to need the services provided through a psychological evaluation, therapy, or testing for school programming. In order to best serve my clients during COVID-19, I am offering telehealth-based therapy, telehealth-based psychological evaluations, and hybrid telehealth/in-person testing. Please view my Services and FAQs to learn more about these services and the precautions being taken to promote your health and safety.
When I'm not wearing my psychologist hat, I enjoy exploring the beautiful PNW with my partner, visiting our National Parks with family, watching musicals, and cuddling with my sweet senior pup and grumpy cat.
