My Ideal Client

Do you want to improve your quality of life? Are symptoms of stress, anxiety or depression getting in your way? Do you feel trapped in an unhealthy or abusive relationship? Are you overwhelmed, burnt out, or juggling multiple roles? Counseling can support you through these challenges!

My Approach to Helping

I will create a safe therapeutic environment where you can be heard, feel understood, and work towards positive growth. You will learn practical tools to reach your goals based on your individual needs. I approach counseling from a client-driven and strengths-based perspective. I infuse and encourage the use of humor in therapy and believe it can be a beneficial part of the process and positive coping mechanism.

More About the People I Treat

I'm skilled in treating the different varieties of anxiety and I really enjoy being a part of people's healing process. I'm experienced in working with people struggling with multiple symptoms since conditions such as ADHD/ADD, trauma, grief, panic, depression etc. can often accompany other issues. I provide guidance through life transitions, balancing multiple roles, and life stressors. I'm also passionate about empowering survivors of abusive relationships. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington, and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor in Oregon. With 14 years of experience, I've worked in crisis centers, outreach programs, residential treatment facilities, domestic abuse programs, etc.

Techniques I Use


  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a structured therapeutic approach with the emphasis of psychotherapy on the present and focuses on teaching skills to change unhealthy thinking and behaviors. CBT is an evidence-based and highly effective approach to counseling.

  • Mindfulness-based External link

    Mindfulness and Acceptance based approaches to counseling can also be very effective. I infuse these elements into my practice, including relaxation training, breathing exercises, visualization, and accepting or acknowledging the difficult aspects of our lives without judgement. With Mindfulness you can learn to pay attention to thoughts and feelings with acceptance and non-judgement.

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) External link

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a set of skills that are focused on distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills also incorporate a mindfulness component.

Issues I Treat


  • Domestic Abuse External link

    Working with survivors of abusive relationships and domestic violence including verbal, emotional, and psychological abuse is one of my specialties. I am experienced in supporting individuals whose partners are exhibiting manipulative and controlling behaviors.

  • Social Phobia External link

    Social Anxiety is one of my specialties and I really enjoy seeing the progress that CBT skills can make both cognitively and behaviorally. This is a type of anxiety that exposure therapy is very effective in treating.

  • Anxiety External link

    Whether due to stressors, life changes, or feeling overwhelmed by everyday life, anxiety can crop up in our lives in many ways and for some it can become debilitating. CBT is very effective for the many different manifestations of anxiety. I'm also trained and experienced in exposure therapy which is one of the primary evidence based treatments for certain types of anxiety disorders. I especially enjoy working with individuals who experience Social Phobia and Generalized Anxiety.
