My Background and Approach

Many of us have been taught that who we are is not okay. Because of this we lose touch with important parts of ourselves. This can lead to feeling overwhelmed or isolated. Counseling is the process of shedding light on these unexplored areas. We will look at how these messages continue to impact you today, we will link the present to the past, and look at what systems continue to perpetuate these messages. We will work together to restory these messages so that you regain connection to yourself and others. Throughout the counseling process I utilize my training in depth therapy, mindfulness, Narrative Exposure Therapy, and relational and interpersonal approaches. In addition we will look at the cultural and social context in which you live and how these impact the challenges you face. I also provide supervision to LPC and LMFT interns.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I earned my masters degree in counseling psychology from Lewis & Clark College. I have worked in community mental health with diverse populations experiencing a broad range of symptoms and struggles, such as trauma, shame, gender-identity, anxiety, and depression, through one on one and group facilitation. In addition I have received specialized training for working with trauma and PTSD: Narrative Exposure Therapy (a trauma processing therapy), Acceptance and Compassion for trauma, and Somatic Resources for trauma. I utilize my experience and knowledge to support you in your growth.

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    Sometimes coming to therapy is about exploring, where you have been and what your next life steps will be, or to explore deeper patterns that keep appearing in your life. I would love to be alongside you in this process!

  • PTSD External link

    Many people experiences life events that impact them physically and emotionally. A person may find themselves fearful, unexpectedly remembering a past event, difficulty going places, and many more experiences. I work with people to regain a sense of safety and, if appropriate, use my training in trauma processing to decrease how symptoms impact your daily life.

  • Anxiety External link

    Sometimes worries about life events, social situations, or general worry impact how a person lives their day to day life and I will work with you to move towards personal values with self-compassion.

  • Depression External link

    Depression can feel like the weight of a heavy blanket, where life becomes difficult to navigate. One might feel disconnected from important relationships. I will work with you to feel more connected to yourself and others.
