My Ideal Client

My clients typically are mid-life or older. They may be struggling with mild/moderate anxiety and working through a difficult transition. I love working with clients who have experienced religious harm or who want to work on personal or spiritual growth. I no longer work with clients who are primarily working through childhood trauma issues or clients who have severe and complex problems. (For example severe depression with suicidal actions or thoughts, self-harm, drug/alcohol problems.)

My Background and Approach

I studied Transpersonal Psychology in graduate school and am currently working on a credential as a Spiritually Integrated Therapist. I am licensed as a professional counselor in both Oregon and Washington. I am a Master Addictions Counselor. I hold national and state credentials as an Approved Clinical Supervisor and has supervised and mentored many younger clinicians. I am a past secretary of the Oregon Mental Health Counselors Association. In 2009, I won an Award “for substantial contribution to the counseling profession." Regarding my own lived experience, I grew up in a fundamentalist sect. I was a minister in the sect in my 20s and 30s. I left the sect and experienced the power of healing via therapy. At this time in my life I identify as having multiple spiritual identities including Buddhist, Christian, Pagan, and Hindu. I enjoy working with clients who have experienced religious harm and also with clients who want to explore their spirituality.

More About the People I Treat
