My Approach

After years of working with teenagers and their families, I honor the unique struggles that young adults experience in life. Being a teenager is hard, and I respect that young people are unique and complex individuals who deserve compassion and honesty in their process of learning to navigate life. In my practice, I strive to create a comfortable, positive space where you can become a person who feels strong and proud of who you are. I most often use a solution-focused and client-centered approach. I believe my clients are the experts of their own lives and I am here to provide support, guidance and perspective. My therapeutic process is to help you move through your challenges by using your strengths. To do this, we have to work collaboratively. I enjoy helping people learn new ways to look at themselves and their experiences.

My Background

Originally from the Midwest, I moved to Portland in 2007. I have been working with teenagers and families for 12 years as a mental health counselor where I support students in finding success to graduate from high school and to navigate this world. I also work closely with families to provide additional support on how to best assist their teenagers with this process. I received my Master's degree through the University of Kansas and completed my hours towards my LCSW license in Portland. I have been trained in using Mindfulness, Restorative Justice, Emotional Security, and Eye Movement & Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to assist with processing trauma. I have also spent time to develop my own racial consciousness and my awareness of how racial dynamics influence our lives and our communities.
