Professional Counselor

Thank you for taking a few minutes to see if you can relate to my particular counseling style and experience. I am a mom of four, a daughter, a friend, a partner of 25 years, an entrepreneur, and a fellow human being. I use kindness, empathy, and humor to create a safe space where you can be real.

My Approach

I view counseling as a joint partnership between a counselor and client and I listen carefully to the concerns of my clients. I am passionate about creating a safe environment for you to explore and heal from pasts pain, while also discovering purpose and meaning in your life. I use an integrated approach to counseling, which means that I am willing to apply creativity and various types of interventions that may benefit you. I love to work with clients from all orientations and walks of life. I have a background in working with individuals and groups who have spiritual concerns, however, out of care and respect for my clients, I will never impose my personal beliefs or opinions onto clients. I immigrated to the US two decades ago, so I can relate to the difficulties many people face in adapting to a new country, language, and culture

My Background

I am trained to meet the unique needs of clients who are survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence. I also have many years of experience helping clients with challenging relationships, addiction, food struggles, trauma, anxiety, depression, bipolar., spiritual issues, and cultural challenges. I am a National Certified Counselor. I obtained an M.A. in Counseling at Western Seminary in Portland Oregon. I also hold a Bachelors in Law from UNISA (University of South Africa), and I am a published author and public speaker. I am also a registered intern with the State of Oregon and work under the supervision of a licensed psychologist.
