My Ideal Client

The world is a stressful place right now, and even more stressful for those who experience anxiety or depression. You may be feeling sad, lonely, nervous, numb, restless, worthless or one of the million other ways anxiety and depression can present themselves to us. I want to support you in your exploration of those feelings, and help you look for ways to let the light in.

My Approach to Helping

Old wounds and unexplored parts of ourselves can keep us stuck. Let's look at them together and find ways to heal them and lift those burdens. I’ll work with you to explore and get to know the different parts of you, sort through what coping strategies have worked for you or may no longer be helpful, and sit with feelings that you don’t know how to process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Professional Counselor Associate. I completed a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Portland State University, and a bachelor's degree in Biology and Psychology at University of Oregon. I discovered my love of working with teenagers while providing mental health services to high school students. I am honored to walk alongside teens as they face their challenges, develop their strengths, and find their direction in life. I also enjoy working with adults, and have a background in working with clients experiencing a wide array of issues including depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, self esteem issues, trauma, grief and loss, academic difficulties, career concerns, adjustment issues, and stress management.

Techniques I Use


  • Humanistic  External link

    The foundation of my counseling practice is humanistic. I see clients as the experts in their own experience, and I take a truly non-judgmental, collaborative approach to helping clients unleash their innate potential for healing.

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) External link

    Using Internal Family Systems therapy, I can help you to identify and understand different parts of yourself that may hold onto burdens from your past. Releasing these burdens can restore balance and harmony among the different parts of yourself, and give strength to your core self.

Issues I Treat


  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    I completed a year-long internship providing mental health counseling services to high school students, and completed additional studies in counseling children and youth.

  • Suicidal Ideation External link

    I received training in suicide intervention through Lines for Life, and worked as a volunteer crisis worker for four years. I completed additional studies in crisis assessment and intervention.

  • Depression External link

    I have decades of personal experience with depression and learning to manage its symptoms. I also have experience in working to help clients manage the ups and downs that come with depression.
