About Me
My work as a clinical psychologist includes individual psychotherapy, group classes, and training. I offer evidence-supported treatment that incorporates self-compassion, mindfulness, and acceptance-based approaches. I have expertise working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, addictive behaviors, anger management, trauma, loss, and relationship dissatisfaction.

My approach aims at helping people lead a full and meaningful life, by clarifying what is deeply important for each person and practicing skills for working effectively with the pain and stress that life inevitably brings.

I am a member of the Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) development and research team. I lead MBRP groups, training, and consulting. I also lead Mindful Self-Compassion groups, both in-person and online.

My background includes providing behavioral health care and trainings/workshops in community agencies, VA and private hospitals, specialized medical settings, corporations, and government agencies. Before graduate school, I spent 6 years as a software engineer and in-house trainer/instructor at Amazon.com. I also co-developed and served as lead instructor for a 9-month University of Washington certificate program for 9 years, and was awarded the UW "Award for teaching excellence."
