My Ideal Client

Are you or your child overly emotional? Does your child act out and you don't know how to handle it? Do you struggle with anxiety or depression? Have you struggle with things that trigger feelings of angst, despair, anger and not know how to over come them? Struggling through these things can feel embarrassing and painful. You don't have to do it alone. I want to show you that you have what it takes to get on the other side: feeling less anxious, less depressed, and filled with hope.

My Approach to Helping

I am providing TeleHealth through out Oregon and California. I have worked with children, teens and their families for 17 years! My career path began with adolescents and teens with substance abuse issues. I provided individual and group therapy as well as parenting classes. I have also worked with children (ages 0-12) and their caregivers in the child welfare system (foster care, adoption, and reunification) working through difficulties surrounding trauma responses, attachment difficulties, anxiety, depression, and ADHD. The services I provided included individual and family therapy, training on trauma and the brain, adoption, and parenting. More recently, I provided intensive, community-based therapy services to teens and their families in crisis as well as individual and family therapy to a variety of individuals in an office setting and Telehealth. I am also a mother of four children.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that every individual is doing the best that they can with the tools that they have. It can sometimes feel scary to share your concerns with others. I love exploring and finding your strengths and supporting you in using your strengths to create positive change in your and your family’s lives. Each individual has it within themselves to bring about change in their lives, it is my job to help you uncover the right solutions for you. Although going to therapy has been stigmatized, I truly believe that all individuals would benefit from going to therapy. This is why I am not afraid to share that I have my own therapist. I have an extensive trauma history that has brought on anxiety and depression. It is with therapy that has allowed me to push through the darkness and see that there is another side, one that is beautiful. There is also no shame in letting loose and finding things to laugh about; which is what we will do while also working through the hard stuff.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Parenting External link

    I am the parent of four children and have been teaching parenting for over 20 years. The typical parenting practices work great; for the "normal" child, but inadvertently makes the emotional, traumatized, intense and challenging individual worse. Now I teach the Nurtured Heart Approach. I teach this both in a class format and individually. It has been a great way to help parents and the children to see the great kids they are with great things to offer. It builds positive self-esteem.

  • PTSD External link

    Having experience many forms of trauma, I have focussed my practice to working with individuals with trauma histories. I have taken many classes and read several books on the subject. I utilize trauma informed lens while working with individuals and seeing all the intricacies of how the trauma affects ALL of their life. First we build safety, learn coping strategies, and then work on processing the trauma story. This process is different for each person.

  • Anxiety External link

    Having struggled with Anxiety, I know all the spirals that come from it. Whether you worry about what has happened, what is going to happen, or worried about how others view you (the list can go on and on) being able to focus on the tools that can help calm those thoughts. In utilizing mindfulness, exercise, and reframing thoughts, we can work toward decreasing the anxious thoughts and live in the moment instead of what should have or could be.
