ABOUT MARA

I have a master’s degree in applied behavioral science from Bastyr University and a doctorate in mythology and depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am licensed by the state of Washington as a mental health counselor and currently a candidate at the Northwestern Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. My practice is located in Seattle's Madison Valley neighborhood.

Since 2002, my experiences as a psychotherapist, community-agency counselor, and hospital clinician have connected me with people from diverse cultures, races, classes, religions, and sexual orientations. I’ve spoken as a clinical expert for many organizations, including Shepherd’s Counseling Service, Swedish Hospital, Seattle University, La Leche League, and Postpartum Support International of Washington. My affiliations include the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study and the psychoanalytic division of the American Psychological Association. I am also a writer and worked as a journalist and editor before transitioning into psychology.
