My Approach

My willingness to stay open to my clients' unique experiences in the space we create together allows me to work with a wide range of experiences. My approach operates in the here-and-now. I work with clients using a trauma-informed lens to deepen self-knowing, meaning making, support shifts in perspective, as well as emotional and behavioral support. The therapeutic relationship created between client and therapist in the present moment is the most essential tool for learning, growth, and deepening. I use a variety of creative interventions to assist the process: somatic awareness sand tray role play/empty chair dream assessments

My Background

Providing mental health services to the community has been a part of my life for the past 4.5 years. I received by BS in Psychology from Tulane University and my MA in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Lewis & Clark College. I interned for 9 months on the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) specialty team at the Portland VA Hospital where I served Veterans with PTSD and a variety of other mental health issues. I worked for 1.5 years with children ages 8-17 in crisis on a children's inpatient psychiatric unit in New Orleans, LA.
