My Approach

I approach counseling with a deep empathy and belief in the power of your strengths and encourage insight, empowerment and self-compassion. It is important to examine the relationships between emotion, thought and behavior while considering past, present and future life contexts and relationships. I also aim to recognize systemic barriers to the achievement of well-being and support you in navigating these. My counseling style is accepting, sincere and validating.

My Background

I received my Masters of Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College. I specialized in children, adolescents and eating disorders. I have experience working with adults, teens and children who have experienced domestic violence, trauma and grief/loss. I have also worked with people around food, body and weight related concerns, counseled adolescents at a local high school and provided phone crisis counseling. My experience involves individual, group and family work in a variety of settings and programs. In addition, I have training with children and teens in residential and day treatment, foster and adopted youth, with mindfulness, animal assisted and nature therapies.
