My Approach

As a counselor, I consider my role first and foremost to be warm, responsive, and present with you, and whatever it is you might bring with you into our time together. I am social justice oriented and welcome people of all identities and life experiences. I will walk alongside you on your own wonderfully unique journey, always focusing on working together to create the safety and connection that our embodied and relational beings need to thrive. Deepening a felt-sense of safety and security in the counseling relationship can ripple out into your life in beautiful and transformative ways. Sessions are organic and dependent on what is "alive" for you in the here and now of the counseling session. I strive to listen deeply and follow your lead. ​ When appropriate, we will weave in pragmatic tools for your specific needs, offer information intended to empower you and normalize your experience, or guided somatic or mindfulness practices.

My Background

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon. I completed my BA at Reed College in cultural anthropology, and my MS in clinical mental health counseling at Oregon State University. The foundation of my practice is interpersonal neurobiology, but I work in a holistic and eclectic way depending on your unique needs and preferences. I also have training in many evidence-based modalities including CBT and EMDR, as well as mindfulness and yoga. I have worked in non-profit clinics, domestic violence agencies, residential settings, mobile crisis, and schools.
