My Approach

I have an eclectic approach to counseling, drawing from a variety of change-oriented, insight-building intervention styles. I take a dialectical stance in therapy, searching for what is being left out and working to promote balance in your life. Our work will be informed by the evidence-based and behaviorally-informed practices of CBT and DBT. I will also integrate relational and interpersonal reconstructive therapy, as I believe the relationship is primary - for therapy to work we must work well together.

My Background

I hold a master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College and am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon. My practice has involved treating folks struggling with depression, bipolar, trauma, grief, personality disorders, and anxiety disorders. My experience also includes working with queer, trans & non-binary people as well as survivors of interpersonal violence and abuse. I work primarily with individuals and welcome clients who are looking for support on their journey. Let's get to know each other and work towards your goals!
