I have been working with children, teens, and their families since 1995 and have been a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in the state of Washington since 2005 and a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) in the state of California as of 2021.

I am a proud University of Washington alumni and received my MA in clinical psychology from Antioch University in Seattle.  Throughout my career, I have worked in variety of settings, including academic and clinical centers, research programs, private and community health clinics, and in private practice.

I have been the Executive Director at University of California, Irvine’s Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders since 2014.  Prior to this,  I have served as a clinician at Cadence Child and Adolescent Therapy in Kirkland, WA and have previously held positions, including Associate Director, for over 20 years at the University of Washington’s Autism Center.  I have  maintained a private practice in Washington for over 15 years and am excited to have a similar practice in  Orange County, CA.
