A passion for learning and an insistent sense of curiosity have propelled me forward on life’s journey since I was a little girl. I have always been fascinated with the study of human beings and consciousness and this naturally led me to immerse myself in both acting and psychology. In graduate school my academic interests gravitated towards issues of social justice (specifically Domestic Violence and Child Abuse) which became the center of my training and education as a Clinical Social Worker. After serving as Adjunct Faculty teaching clinical social work courses at the University of Washington, I turned to private practice where I have continued to work for many years. Lately I’ve combined my therapy work with pursuing a semi-retirement career as an actor, director, and screenwriter. Life could not be more satisfying!
