About Me

I understand the unique legal considerations of the mental health profession. I have had many years of experience providing legal counsel and guidance to a wide range of mental health professionals including psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, psychiatrists, and medical doctors.


 


As an attorney in the US Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps, I have had over 10 years experience conducting legal training and providing legal services to Navy Family Advocacy Program mental health and medical professionals in California and Washington State. I have also served as legal counsel on Navy Domestic Violence Case Review Committees for over 7 years.


 


In addition to my service with the US Navy Family Advocacy Program, I have served as a criminal defense attorney, as a federal prosecutor, and as in-house counsel. I have also had the opportunity to represent both the government and individuals in over one hundred administrative hearings.


 


I graduated cum laude from Wayne State University School of Law in Detroit Michigan, I attended the Hague Academy of International Law in the Hague, Netherlands, I received a BA degree in Linguistics from the University of Michigan, and I am currently pursuing a MA degree in counseling psychology.


 


I continue to serve as an attorney in the US Navy Reserve where I provide legal counsel to mental health professionals employed by the United States.


 


I am a member of the Washington State Bar Association, the State Bar of Michigan, the Seattle Counselors Association, the National Lawyers Guild, the Julian Jaynes Society, and the Seattle Swedish Cultural Center.
