My Approach

My therapeutic approach has a dual focus. Trained as a couples and family therapist, I help clients understand how their unique history influences their current health and happiness. When you grasp how family /relational dynamics and past trauma affect how you cope with life and its stressors, you can easily identify strategies and patterns of behavior that no longer serve you. AND I am an experiential therapist because the felt experience of something new and different is what sustains lasting change. I utilize attachment theory, mindfulness, and somatic interventions to excavate buried parts of the self and core emotions. This process is creative and takes many different forms. The desired result however is always the same: a new and powerful emotional tool box that allows you more flexibility and resilience when responding to life’s challenges.

My Background

I hold a Master’s degree in Marital, Couples, and Family Therapy from Portland State University. My post graduate training is primarily focused on Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and the relational practices of Terry Real and Esther Perel. I am passionate about this work and feel deeply honored by every story I hear and every change I witness. I tend to work well with people who like honest, unbiased feedback and who consider themselves out of the box thinkers- artists, educators, LGBTQ, people in recovery from religious trauma, entrepreneurs, and small biz owners. Fit is everything in counseling. I invite you to visit me for a free initial consult to feel out if I am the right counselor for you.
