My Approach

I approach therapy as a collaborative process, recognizing that you and I both contribute valuable knowledge and expertise to our work. My experience is that when we combine our efforts, we are able to develop creative, personalized, and powerful ways for you to be more effective, engaged, and satisfied in life. I draw from a variety of psychological theories and techniques to tailor therapy to your particular strengths, goals, needs, and personality. For instance, we may work at increasing our understanding of your emotional experiences & why they occur; challenging & changing ways of being or thinking that no longer work for you; processing or reconceptualizing experiences & relationships; etc. Occasional “experiments” between sessions help to reinforce or inform our work; whether the experiment “succeeds” or “fails” we have new data. The overarching goal is to help you get unstuck, increase your understanding of yourself, & enhance your ability to adapt to and enjoy your life.

My Background

I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from Pacific University in 2012 and have been working as a mental health therapist since 2007. I've worked in a variety of settings including community mental health and college counseling centers, gaining experience and training spanning all ages, many cultures, and the full range of socioeconomic statuses. I'm trained in a variety of theoretical and technical approaches to therapy, which allows me to tailor therapy to a client's particular needs, strengths, and situation. I continue to seek training, knowledge, and experience in working with all types of clients, but especially those identifying as sexual, gender, and ethnic/cultural minorities.
