My Approach

I believe people have the power to change habits and feelings through increasing their self-awareness of their thoughts and being supported in challenging these thoughts. Further, people often know what it is they need but need help establishing commitment to change. I believe all people are good, and they need to see the good inside themselves. This can be enhanced through practicing self-compassion. Most importantly, I believe a therapist is responsible for seeing a person’s entire environment as perpetuating a problem rather than the person wholly being at fault. I help my clients examine how their mental health and behavioral issues are affected on the different systemic levels of their life. Clients need to understand the world they live in, the culture of their country, the community of which they are a part, their family’s dynamics, the role they play in their peer group, and the multiple roles they play in their life.

My Background

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC). I have much diverse experience and have worked in residential settings, outpatient settings, schools, hospitals, and day treatment programs. I have a M.A. in counseling psychology from Lewis and Clark College, Portland (2007), and I have a B.A. in both psychology and sociology from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities (2000). I work with adolescents, parents, and adults. I specialize in eating disorders, anxiety, drug and alcohol use problems, stress, low self-esteem, parent-child conflict, and other youth problems.
