I obtained my Master of Counseling degree from Oregon State University and have experience supporting individuals, couples and family systems that have faced complex trauma, depression and anxiety, life transition concerns, grief and loss and divorce and relationship issues. I also have training in crisis intervention, legal advocacy and collaborative problem solving with adolescents and children.
My clinical experience includes counseling clients from diverse backgrounds; including age, sex, sexual orientation, religion and culture. With individuals, I employ a holistic, integrative approach that utilizes a Strengths-Based focus, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment and Mindfulness. With couples, I enjoy working through a Strengths-Based, Emotionally Focused Therapy lens.
I collaborate with clients to tune into what really matters and help them move forward in a way that feels authentic and empowering. I approach therapy as an opportunity to connect our thoughts, feelings and actions with our past/present experiences and internalized cultural/familial messages. In all sessions, I strive to create a safe environment to allow for personal growth, awareness of self and the ability to build resiliency within one’s identity, family structures and relationships.
This is your life, and it’s important.
