My Approach

I am eclectic in my approach with a strong reliance on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I believe counseling is a process to provide insight and understanding in order to improve your life. I also recognize that you live within various systems (family, work, culture) that impact your life in different ways, and that counseling must include these components in the process. I enjoy using play therapy, sand tray, or art therapy, in the process when working with children or adolescents if this is something they are interested in.

My Background

I graduated from Portland State University with my Bachelors degree in Psychology. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Multnomah University. Major course work included: human development, understanding psychopathology, human relations, play therapy, substance abuse, and adolescent psychology. Outside of my graduate program, I have completed trauma training through International Association of Trauma Professionals to become a CCTP. I am trained in EMDR and have continued taking trauma classes to further my knowledge around trauma. I am also a certified drug and alcohol counselor
