Professional Counselor Intern
I am a Military spouse, a parent, an artist and a Recovery Alcoholic. The reason I went back to graduate school after 26 years in a different career, and pursued a Masters in Counseling was so I could help share insights and coping skills I have learned throughout my life.
I respect and highly value each individual's innate ability to heal themselves. Through a therapeutic relationship based in empathy, patience and creativity, and a client's willingness to trust in change, clients can realize or rediscover the strength and ability to heal themselves. Some of the work I have found most rewarding is working with clients in recovery and life transitions. I offer clients many different ways to express themselves. In addition to 'talk therapy', I facilitate interactive sessions that can include music, art and photography journaling and tactile exercises - therapy is dynamic and tailored to each clients' needs.
I have a Master of Counseling degree from Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis, Missouri and a Bachelor of Communications degree from the University of Portland in Oregon. I am a member of both the American Counseling Association and the Oregon Association of Counselors.
