Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker/therapist and I'm skilled at helping adults, teens, couples, and families navigate an array of challenges by cultivating growth, building necessary skills, deepening insight and awareness, and fostering meaningful relationships and connection.

My approach to therapy is rooted in mindfulness and strategies to build awareness and insight into one’s thoughts, feelings, actions, and personal experience to cultivate growth, self-acceptance, and a sense of agency or choice. With increased awareness you will be able to “slow down” and better understand what it is you are thinking, feeling, and experiencing in the moment so that you can make an informed decision about how you would like to respond. In our work together, I will teach you skills to help you relate to yourself and others in a way that is helpful, balanced and kind. With my approach, I have successfully helped others to heal from past pain and loss and form new, healthy relationships based on trust, helped people find their voice and build a sense of self that feels authentic and whole, as well as overcome anxiety and all the "what ifs" that don't seem to end.
I am a licensed clinical social worker/therapist and earned my Master of Social Work degree from Portland State University. I have been volunteering and working in the helping profession and field of mental health since 2006. In both paid work and academic internships, I intentionally selected positions that provided excellent training and supervision in addressing an array of challenges facing adolescents/teens, families, and adults. I have specialized training working with adolescents, teens, and families and continue to work part-time at Children’s Center, a well-respected agency in Vancouver, WA. Furthermore, I have advanced training in the application of Buddhist psychology and Gestalt Therapy, trauma-informed treatment, and working with transgender and gender non-conforming teens and adults. I am also experienced in helping people though life transitions, career changes, and moving past barriers to personal success.
