I've been local to San Diego for over 30 years, but originally come from the Midwest. Before becoming a therapist, I had a very different career as a professional illustrator, which may be why I see therapy as an art form! My work as a therapist began in 2001 when I worked with teens in foster care during my internship. Now, I enjoy working with a variety of people and especially in-depth work.

I earned my undergraduate degree  from George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and a Masters from National University in Counseling Psychology (2000).

I was also chosen to participate in the two-year Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program at the San Diego Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (SDPSI). This is traditionally a post-Doctoral program which goes in-depth into the specific technique of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
