My Approach

During these uncertain times the vitality of our relationships are more important than ever. The added stress of isolation, anxieties, and fears of the unknown are only compounding the struggles in our relationships with our partners. You may be feeling the pressure on what you have been aware of as unresolved issues or you may just be struggling in the moment to adjust to a new reality. I have found that with some focused attention on their relationship couples can actually thrive during this time! Every struggle contains a kernel of hope and the possibility for renewed connection and intimacy. Together we can identify and address what needs to be strengthened and nurtured between the two of you and what blocks are keeping you from having the relationship you desire. Now is a great time to pause and shift some energy into improving your relationship.

My Background

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in Psychology I worked for many years in the field of sexual assault and domestic violence as a counselor and advocate. I then earned my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles. I enjoyed three years of clinical training at Valley Community Healthcare (now Valley Community Counseling Center), a psychoanalytic psychotherapy clinic in N. Hollywood, CA. Having lived in many different places on each coast, I am thrilled to call Portland home and look forward to hearing from you so that we can collaborate together towards reaching your goals. As an LMFT Intern I am supervised by Dr. James Soliday, LMFT.
