My Approach

When life changes suddenly whether by choice or circumstance, we lose our old ways of being before we know what the new way looks like. Yikes! My clients appreciate my humor and my direct, compassionate attitude. Laughter is often a part of therapy, maybe not in every session, but often. Change is really difficult, and getting into the deep stuff is really hard, but it is quicker and a little less painful when we do it together. I am not the nod and smile type of therapist. I will call you on your stuff, but with empathy, compassion and curiosity. I provide feedback that is both emotional and practical, with strategies that you can put into practice immediately.

My Background

I earned my Masters in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling at Portland State University. My graduate studies were extremely rigorous, and I received hundreds of hours of live supervision both in practicum at the PSU Community Clinic and at my internship at the Cedar Hills Hospital Outpatient program. I am a National Board Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC). I have experience working with people who have chronic illness and/or pain, poor body image, disordered eating, disabilities, anxiety, depression, life transition difficulties and trauma. I utilize several evidence-based theoretical approaches in therapy including attachment based therapy, compassion based, humanistic, person centered, somatic and psychodynamic. My work is informed by the shame research of Brene Brown, the trauma work of Bessel van der Kolk, the self compassion research of Kristin Neff, buddhism and Eastern spirituality.
