My Approach to Helping

Our work will be collaborative and deeply informed by social justice and equity. Many problems where we assign personal blame are the result of social systems that value some identities over others and generally perpetuate hierarchy and judgment that translates to individual pain and disconnection. Together we will lead you back to a strongly attached and empowered connection. I believe that you have everything you need for the healing and recovery work we will do. My job is to help you heal from old wounds, reconnect both of you to the wisdom of your emotions and your intuitive knowing, and grow into relational empowerment and mastery. Together we will help shine a spotlight on negative patterns that may have led your partnership to where it is now and help you navigate the challenges that change can bring. My personal experience is that growth comes through hardship and that it is through our deepest pain that we find our greatest gifts. I am honored to begin this journey with you

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a Marriage, Couple and Family Therapist Intern registered with the State of Oregon. I received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. I have additional training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, Relational Life Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and the affair recovery work of Esther Perel. I am also in the process of becoming a Certified Body Trust Provider. I am under the ongoing clinical supervision of Sarah Pattee, LPC and Hilary Kinavey, LPC.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) External link

    When working with individuals, I pull primarily from an IFS perspective. I have advanced training in IFS. Together we will invite your emotions and identify them as messengers to guide your healing. We will use ritual, art, story telling and more to explore all the parts of yourself that have a voice. Our work will dive into your body story, uncovering your inherent worthiness and wisdom.

  • Couples Counseling External link

    I believe that we are conceived in relationship and continue to move in, out, and through relationships our entire lives. These relationships teach us how to love, how to hurt, how to learn, how to exist in our bodies, how to judge and hold prejudice, how to forgive. They can bring the wounding cut of betrayal, and also hold tremendous power for healing.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    I have additional training specifically in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and attachment theory. I believe engaging in the emotional climate of a couple is where change happens.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I believe that we are conceived in relationship and continue to move in, out, and through relationships our entire lives. These relationships teach us how to love, how to hurt, how to learn, how to exist in our bodies, how to judge and hold prejudice, how to forgive. They can bring. I am a dedicated relationship counselor and have pursued specific additional training for working with couples.

  • Autism External link

    Couples (neurotypical and neurodiverse) who have had a child diagnosed or suspect that their child could be diagnosed autism experience tremendous stress and general lack of community support. I support couples who are working hard to be advocates for their kids and balance home, work, and personal lives. I am deeply invested in this work and will support couples at any stage in their journey.
