I obtained my Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of Washington in 2006 and my state license to practice as a psychologist in 2007. I have always known that I wanted to work with children and my experience extends to the early 1990's, when I assisted with state-of-the-art child research and treatment studies through Vanderbilt University and the University of Washington. In addition, I worked as a school psychologist in California for five years before moving back to Seattle. My education and training include a predoctoral internship at Seattle Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center, as well as a predoctoral and postdoctoral internship at the University of Washington Autism Center and the University of Washington Center on Human Development and Disability (CHDD). I worked at the University of Washington Autism Center as a licensed psychologist until 2013.
