My Approach

I practice from a contemporary Gestalt therapy approach, which states that mental health symptoms arise as a result of creative adjustments made to life circumstances. Central to the Gestalt approach is the paradoxical idea that symptom relief happens naturally when examining the symptoms with curiosity rather than by pushing them away. The mind-body connection is a crucial part of this healing process. I also practice EMDR, and use this as a tool in my practice when appropriate. I bring authenticity, warmth, and humor to the therapeutic relationship that balances the difficulty of therapy.

My Background

I graduated from Pacific University with a doctorate in clinical psychology in 2015. My clinical experiences in graduate school and residency took place in college counseling and community mental health centers. I am committed to providing culturally competent therapy and continue to seek experiences that challenge my privilege and worldview. I enjoy working with young adults and the exciting identity transformation that often occurs in this time of life. Both my thesis and dissertation focused on the interaction between social media use, addiction, and relationships. I would be honored to help you engage with social media in a more satisfying and meaningful way.
