My Approach

My approach is person-centered with a blend of existential, mind-body, grief and trauma-informed techniques. I help facilitate a healing and collaborative relationship by providing unconditional acceptance, empathy, caring and understanding, and promoting trust. I believe that you are the expert on your own life and I respect your ability to choose your path and solutions with the assistance and support of the counseling relationship. I will provide a safe and comfortable environment for you to explore and progress at your own pace and utilize creativity and therapeutic techniques from a variety of perspectives that fit with your individual needs. I provide creative, expressive arts, traditional, spiritual and animal-assisted therapies to help clients find insight, empowerment, growth and healing. I do not focus on diagnosing and fixing issues; I believe in healing the whole self through the safety and connection of the therapeutic relationship.

My Background

I hold a Masters in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling and I am currently a Registered LPC Intern with the state of Oregon as well as a National Certified Counselor, supervised by Elizabeth Trautwein, LPC (503-890-2280). I specialize in working with Highly Sensitive People and survivors of trauma and grief. I help clients heal from trauma, grief, anxiety and depression and have experience in individual and group counseling, animal-assisted therapy, and family systems among others. I am EAGALA certified and I am experienced in crisis and suicide intervention using the ASIST model.
