My Approach

I help clients understand the impact of life challenges on their physical, emotional, and psychological state. By becoming more attuned to our fight or flight responses and learning how to transition into a calm state, we give ourselves extra time to think through our options and make decisions that align closely with our values. I use a holistic, warm, and common sense approach, customized to my clients' issues. By focusing on each person’s unique individual strengths, we build self-reliance and confidence in a safe and supportive environment. In sessions, I often incorporate aspects of psycho-education, mindfulness, body awareness, brainspotting, grounding, and self-care.

My Background

I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern registered in the State of Oregon under the supervision of Keith Mackie, LPC. I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from George Fox University. I also have specialized training in Brainspotting Therapy (Phase 2), Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level 3) and in treating trauma and affairs in relationships. I am a trained SMART Recovery facilitator. My clinical experiences include treating PTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, acculturation, financial struggles, career exploration, and relationship issues. In my practice, I integrate Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused, and Narrative therapies with Brainspotting, Somatic techniques, and principles from Neuroscience.
