I am licensed in Oregon and Washington. I am happy to see you in person at my office or via telehealth.
I hold a Masters Degree in Expressive Art Therapy and I was an Adjunct Professor in the Graduate Art Therapy Program at Marylhurst University. I incorporate art, movement, breath and mindfulness in our sessions. Talking about trauma can be difficult, art therapy allows you to express yourself and tell your story without using words in a safe non-judgmental space. You don't have to be an artist to use art therapy and we can discuss if this is the right modality for you.
With all trauma comes loss and grief. I have dedicated my career to working with individuals dealing with grief and loss related to trauma. My focus has been on working with trauma, both current and historical. I also have experience in working with acute and prolonged grief.
I have over 25 years working with children and families., as a Child and Family Therapist working in schools and as Mental Health Consultant for an Early Childhood Program. I am a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and have led multiple parent education groups and provided trainings on parenting to educators.
