My Approach

I am systemically trained, which means I always consider the role of the family and the community in one’s life, even if that person decides not to include their family in counseling. I believe that a large part of wellness is having healthy, meaningful relationships, not just with others, but with ourselves. Change happens when we are honest with ourselves about what is missing in our lives, and what we need from ourselves and others. In therapy, I use a combination of systemic, interpersonal, and humanistic approaches to develop a meaningful relationship and alliance with my clients. More detailed explanations about these approaches can be found below. I also use cognitive behavorial interventions when appropriate. The goal of these approaches is to help my clients develop insight into the behaviors and relationship patterns that are not working for them, and to thus explore new ways of being. These approaches are all backed by several years of scientific and behavioral study.

I hold my Master’s degree in Counseling from Indiana University. I am registered with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors as an LPCI.
