My Approach

I'm originally from the East Coast but now love calling Portland my home. I lived abroad in Asia for a handful of years and my training and experiences overseas have increased my interest in working with clients from diverse and wide ranging backgrounds. I work with adult individuals and reserve a couple of slots for couples. I have learned and grown a great deal over my life and seek to share the insight I've gained to help clients live better lives. I have incorporated a daily practice of Vipassana meditation for much of the past ten years, and this is likely to inform my theories. My approach is fairly focused, yet compassionate, and I aim to work with clients seeking to make earnest changes in their lives. I typically work with adult individuals, specializing in: men's issues, behavioral and relational issues, substance and addiction issues, and depression and spirituality. I am a LPC Registered Intern under the supervision of Tever D. Nickerson, LPC.

My Background

My clients range in awareness of where it is they want the therapy to take them. Most of my clients seem to be seeking change in their lives and want something to shift. I do tend to see those who are interested in the creative arts and exploring spirituality. Although, I have seen benefits from brief therapy (sessions lasting as short as eight instances); my ideal client would be interested in medium to long-term psychotherapy. I hold a master’s degree from Portland State University (CACREP accredited) in the area of Clinical Mental Health.  I also have a master’s degree in Special Education and have taught a wide range of students for more than fourteen years. Additionally, I taught in the public schools for over ten years; and have experience with clients navigating significant difficulties and obstacles. I fulfilled my graduate internship with individuals coming out of the federal prison system.
