I am originally from Oregon and completed my doctorate in Counseling Psychology at the University of Utah; I have been a licensed psychologist since 1991.  My areas of clinical interest include emotional difficulties (e.g., depression and anxiety) and developmental issues (e.g., identity concerns, relationship problems, and family-of-origin issues).  I integrate humanistic, interpersonal, feminist, and cognitive-behavioral approaches in my counseling.  I value psychotherapy, training, clinical supervision, professional standards, licensing/credentialing, and ethics. I define diversity broadly and continually strive to address my orientation to multiculturalism by attending to my own multicultural development.  Personal interests inlcude driving in truly remote areas, camping, and locating places of historic interest.  I have recently enjoyed exploring some of the less-traveled areas of Canyonlands National Park in southern Utah.
