Trellis Counseling

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

“Why am I not over this already?” If you find yourself asking that, maybe I can help. I work with people struggling in due to past experiences, or recent trauma. I believe that healing and hope occur within a healthy therapeutic relationship.

My Approach

My primary therapeutic tools include EMDR, Attachment Theory, Narrative Therapy, and Internal Family Systems-informed psychotherapy. Ultimately, those are just words that support my belief that healing and help happen when there’s a good working relationship between the client and the counselor. I’ve seen it time and time again, so I work hard to build a therapeutic rapport so that you can be seen and heard for who you are. The best feedback I’ve ever been given was when a client told me recently at their closing session, “I’ve never had anybody listen to me the way that you listen to me. You remember things that I’ve said, and I know that you really care.”

My Background

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Portland State University School of Social Work. I also have a Bachelors of Social Work (BSW) degree, and a BA in Social Sciences with a minor in Psychology. For the past 3 years I have worked with hundreds of adults with severe and persistent mental illness in both a state hospital setting as well as a busy community mental health clinic in NE Portland, while maintaining a small private practice. Now I’m solely focused on my private practice work.
