My Approach

As a counselor I work from a general theory base of Existential Humanistic and Systems Theory; focusing on the dynamics of creativity, mindfulness, and self-awareness within the context of a person’s worldview. My approach is collaborative & strengths-based, utilizing cognitive, experiential, somatic, creative & relational therapies to encourage clients’ abilities to problem solve, navigate modern life, self-comfort & develop their identity. In sessions clients find a unique space to notice their experiences & observe their place in the world around them. Through this process of individualized, relevant, positive & engaging therapy, clients’ self-expression, awareness & empowerment are cultivated & opportunities for growth & healing can be explored & experienced.

My Background

I hold a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialty in Children & Adolescent Treatment from Lewis & Clark College, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology. My training in both fields helps me to see both the individual & the bigger systems (family, culture, world, etc.) that they exist within, allowing me to offer my clients a wider perspective & larger framework from which to examine problems & their impact, which I find particularly useful working with young people. I have been a Nationally Certified Counselor since 2011 & have been providing direct services to youth & families since 2003. I’ve worked with children, adolescents, teens, young adults & families from a diverse variety of backgrounds, communities, & belief systems; I have experience with issues that span the spectrum of struggles young people may face. My work has been done in private practice, elementary, middle & high schools & the juvenile court system.
