My Approach

I am a skilled and flexible practitioner that works to attune to each individual client’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. I practice as a generalist but I do have specific experience working with depression, anxiety, domestic and sexual violence, adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, relationship concerns, and chronic pain/illness. I am also religiously literate and would love to support your spiritual journey. It is my honor to work with all kinds of couples--at all stages of a relationship. Are you just starting out and want to build a solid foundation? Are there old wounds, bad habits, or a general feeling of discontent getting in the way of your relationship? Together we can address how to de-escalate conflict, identify your particular communication cycle, and at the same time increase nurturing, bonding, and intimacy.

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. 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.
