Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

Life can leave us feeling hurt and defeated. Even with our best efforts, we sometimes need help to feel better. Fortunately, counseling can offer relief by accessing powerful inner strengths, improving attitudes, and retaining balance, so that you can live and feel your best possible self.

My Approach

People commonly experience mental health issues that make them feel off, inadequate, or incapable of managing life. Counseling aims to increase one’s functioning. It is about progress not perfection: being able to function to the best of one’s personal capacities in mind, body, and spirit. I believe that people are resilient and capable of managing difficulties if they have the necessary resources—resources that can be invoked or learned through therapy. Because each person is unique and outcomes are achieved by various methods an individually tailored approach to therapy/amassing resources is required. I incorporate tenets of compassion focused therapy, ACT, and reality therapy in my practice. Together, we will work to explore values, define personal meaning, channel creative energy, develop and implement skills, and exercise self-compassion while honoring your specific experience, and in so doing, advance your sense of well-being and life satisfaction.

My Background

I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and a registered counselor intern in Oregon. I hold a Master of Science in Counseling from Portland State University. My professional experience includes working with people who have physical/psychiatric disabilities, formerly incarcerated people, and people in immediate mental health crisis. I believe in creative energy and the concept of life as art. This inspired my undergraduate studies in painting and, along with a calling to help ease people’s suffering, eventually led me to work with people experiencing mental health issues. I also believe that counseling can benefit practically every person, as we all struggle at times. I, for one, note that counseling has made a considerable difference in my life around issues of addiction and self-worth. Beyond providing support for individuals, my work involves refuting commonly held misconceptions of pathology and promoting social justice for people with oppressed/marginalized identities.
