My Approach

Therapy can be a place to create a unique relationship dedicated to supporting your healing and growth. My approach is grounded in an integrative somatic orientation—we will include your body's experience in therapy. In addition to talking we may utilize body awareness, breath, and movement as ways to help you learn more about yourself and promote healing. This can allow us to gather valuable information about aspects of your experience that may often go unnoticed. We will also look outward to the broader contexts, such as family and social dynamics, that also have a real impact on you. Therapy with me is a collaborative process; I will be responsive to your unique background, needs, and feedback. We'll build on your strengths to find a way forward that respects your past and opens up your future.

My Background

You might be wondering what it would be like to work with me. Do I have the qualifications, experience, and skill necessary to help you? The best way to find out is to contact me and we can talk about your specific situation and needs—and what therapy might look like for you. I completed my graduate training in Somatic Psychology in San Francisco, where I had the opportunity to learn from many pioneering educators and clinicians. Before entering private practice, I worked with several community organizations, offering mental health services at a crisis and suicide hotline, a legal advocacy center for youth, and a low-fee community mental health clinic specializing in somatic psychology. My office is centrally located in downtown Portland and readily accessible from all of Portland’s four quadrants and outlying areas.
