My Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology was completed at Pacifica Graduate institute with an emphasis on Depth Psychology. I received degrees in literature and secondary education from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Since earning my graduate degree, I have continued to do postgraduate training through a series of courses, workshops, seminars, and institutes. Areas of focus include loss and letting go, mindfulness, music, narrative re-structuring, and attachment. I am enrolled in a 2-year Child Psychoadynamic Psychology Training Program at Seattle Psychoanalytic Society and Institute.
