My Ideal Client

Have you been finding that you are recreating the same patterns in your relationships, over and over again? Do you find yourself feeling that your relationships are never quite as fulfilling as you wish they were? Do you feel like you chose friends and partners who aren't good for you? Let's work together to unpack the old relationship templates that are no longer serving you so that you can find deeper connections and intimacy with the people who matter to you the most.

My Approach to Helping

**Currently only using telehealth** As a counselor my goal is to help you process your experiences and gain a deeper understanding of yourself. I believe that the stories we tell ourselves and the stories that we have been influenced by can shape our daily experiences. Part of this process is exploring how our past experiences create our present. My aim is to help you find a new way of relating to your past so that you can create a more meaningful and empowered life. Somatic techniques can help cultivate a mind-body connection that allows us to access our whole selves. I want to help you work through the past to make the space that is necessary to look into the future and develop new habits that support who you are today. I provide individual therapy sessions for teens and adults who are seeking to create a more meaningful and intentional lives. I am committed to providing trauma-informed therapy. My approach to working with trauma is deeply rooted in the principles of social justice.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My career in mental health began working in residential foster care with children and adolescents. During my graduate internship I engaged youth and young adults in substance use and dual-diagnosis counseling. Since obtaining my degree I have worked in multiple mental health crisis settings with adults and children alike. I have a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Vermont. I am a registered Licensed Professional Counseling Intern in the state of Oregon, currently being supervised by LPC Karen Hixon and LCSW Kindra Carroll.
