Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I offer a wealth of education and experience across various domains and am down-to-earth and non-judgmental. I believe we are all doing our best, even when we need to do better. I can help with this, and I genuinely care. It's why I do what I do.

My Background

I started off with a research background, getting a Ph.D. (developmental psychology). Wanting to go beyond research and teaching, I studied clinical social work at UT-Austin and left with my M.S.S.W. Because of this background, I am a huge fan of science-based therapies. The two states where I am licensed as a clinician are Oregon and Washington. Apart from private practice, I work for Kaiser's mental health and pediatric specialties departments.
