My Approach

You have more strength and power than you know. I will help you find it. Our work is to cultivate a real relationship where you can feel safe even when vulnerable, comforted in your struggles, and encouraged as you are guided toward the real resources you need to feel more secure in the world. I work relationally, narratively, and humanistically, focusing on the client-therapist relationship, your story, and my genuine trust in your own pull toward health to help you find pathways out of difficult patterns and situations. You know yourself better than anyone else, and my job is to help you generate curiosity and clarity about your own personal processes so that you can make conscious choices about your next steps in life. Feeling truly seen and understood in a safe space can provide the opportunity to feel curious about yourself and your potential again, allowing you to gain clarity and uncover skills, strengths and options you may not even know you have.

My Background

Originally born and raised in Vermont, I attended Middlebury College and lived in New York City before moving to Portland in 2009 and receiving a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Portland State University in 2014. I opened a private practice in Northeast Portland in 2014 and truly enjoy the ongoing opportunity to deepen my skills and understanding through client-led work. Prior to my private practice, I worked in neuroscience and mental health fields, including time working in residential facilities with children and adults with chronic mental illness and as a research coordinator in neurology, looking at the effects of combat trauma on the brain and how cognitive deficits evolve in seniors. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) working under supervision toward state licensure in Oregon and a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA).
