My Approach to Helping

I work from a mindful, humanistic foundation. This means that I believe you are the master of your own experience and you have the power to change the things that are no longer serving you, even those things that seem out of reach, in fact, that is where I find my purpose. I incorporate creative interventions into the therapy room because therapy is as much an art as it is a science. Sometimes this means a pen, pencil, or paint brush. Sometimes this means using a game in a new way or moving around the room. I often use mindfulness techniques to help you remain in the present moment so that you are able to get the most out of your session. In our work together you can expect my attention to the present moment with a nonjudgmental stance and to help guide and aid, when appropriate, to help you improve your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I completed my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at Pacific University in 2015. I have completed training in Systems theory, Cognitive behavioral therapy, Dialectical behavior therapy, Mindfulness, Trauma therapy, and Internal family systems. In graduate school I found I am just as passionate about research as I am about clinical work. I love to nerd out on research related to adolescents, interpersonal trauma, mindfulness, resilience, and families.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Coronavirus/COVID-19 External link

    During any crisis we experience instability and shifts in the way we experience the world. This global pandemic is no different. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, and panic for the first time or you find your symptoms have worsened, I am here to help you navigate these changes as we adapt to our new environments.

  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    I have extensive training and experience working with teens and pre-teens. Adolescence is a period of stress; both for teens and the adults that love them. With stress comes growth and teens are growing a lot! They are managing day to day life and developing personally, cognitively, and emotionally. I enjoy supporting parents and teens navigating this important life transition.

  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I know how hard it is to find a therapist who is the right fit. I can offer a supportive, affirming environment regardless of sexuality, gender, and primary concern. I can help with identity exploration, coming out, and other LGBTQ concerns. I have training and experience working with trans and non-binary individuals, including teens and their families.

  • Anxiety External link

    At the point you are seeking professional services for your anxiety, it is impacting your life in big ways. Anxiety can be your best friend and your worst enemy. Anxiety can help you complete seemingly insurmountable work loads. Anxiety can prevent you from engaging in your life. I help clients find peace through identifying triggers and effective coping strategies.
