My Ideal Client

I am here to listen to your story to gently help you sort through what might feel like a big overwhelming pile of mess, whether from unwanted emotions, too much stress, unresolved interpersonal traumas, or a nagging sense of dissatisfaction with life and just feeling stuck. Clients who seek me out for therapy are often high achievers in their work and/or academic pursuits, and want to work through the source of these symptoms to improve their emotional and mental well-being on a deeper level.

How I Can Help You

Together we’ll uncover the truth of what your pain is trying to tell you about yourself, what’s really important to you, and what is and is not working in your life. This is such an important precursor to lasting change - but it’s not easy! My style is integrative and acknowledges the importance of body/mind/soul in treating underlying mental and emotional imbalances which disrupt a sense of well-being by interfering with the natural process of digesting and integrating life experiences. I can help you develop self-awareness, understanding and acceptance through collaborative, non-judgmental exploration of all aspects of life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington. I have two Master’s degrees, one in Molecular Biology and one in Professional Mental Health Counseling. I am also a certified Ayurvedic Practitioner I integrate Ayurvedic Psychology into my therapeutic approach. I am committed to a life-long process of learning, and strive to work from a place of cultural humility to increase my awareness, knowledge and skills both personally and professionally. I have a special interest in working with college students and with other healthcare professionals, including doctors and psychotherapists.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Integral Therapy External link

    I practice Integrative Counseling by applying the Eastern principles of Ayurvedic Psychology in psychodynamic psychotherapy to assess and treat underlying mental and emotional imbalances that interfere with the process of digesting and integrating life experiences. I also draw from other approaches, including Control Mastery Theory, neurobiology, and Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI).

  • Holistic External link

    As an Ayurvedic Practitioner, I use a holistic style of assessment and treatment that acknowledges the importance of integrating body, mind, and spirit. This includes understanding how your unique physical and mental constitutions interact with the specific environmental and relational contexts in your life.

  • Psychodynamic  External link

    I have been studying and applying psychodynamic principals in my clinical work since 2011. I also completed 2.5 years of clinical internship training with a supervisor trained in Control Mastery Theory, an integrated cross-theoretical cognitive-psychodynamic-relational theory.

    As an Ayurvedic practitioner, I have extensive knowledge of the mind-body connection. I can help you identify potential mental and emotional sources that may be contributing to your physical symptoms, including functional somatic symptoms.
