My Approach

I am a skilled and flexible practitioner that works to attune to each individual and couple’s unique story. I am adept at getting to the heart of the matter—the underlying emotional blockade or deep internal conflicts that may be inhibiting your progress. My approach is compassionate, curious, and non-judgmental. I treat a broad range of human struggles with specific expertise in relationships, couples/marital therapy, depression, anxiety, spirituality and personal growth. As a passionate couples therapist, I believe our primary relationships impact us on a deep and lasting level and therefore the health of these relationships is vital to our well-being. 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.

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.
