My Approach to Helping

Change happens through our recognition of how we are restricted by certain beliefs or behaviors, and the encounter with this recognition allows us the opportunity to choose another path and try out other perspectives. As a therapist, my role is to help you see if the lens you view the world through is the one you want to be looking through. I bring somatic (body focused) practices and interpersonal neurobiology together to reintegrate the body and mind and bring awareness to the ways in which your environment has shaped your nervous system. I practice from an Existential-Humanistic perspective, which means that I see our relationships as a partnership. As fellow humans, we will explore your beliefs about yourself and the world to see what serves you and what doesn’t. Together, we will work to discover the unique path to your wholeness and fulfillment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a Clinical Social Work Associate. I completed my BA in psychology at Lewis and Clark College and my Master’s in social work at Portland State University. I am in the process of completing my certification for Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. My practice is based primarily in Sensorimotor and Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy, but I pull from several modalities to meet the needs of those I work with. Therapy is not one-size-fits-all and I am more interested in finding out what works for you than coming to our work together with a preconceived plan. I have spent several years working in community mental health as an addictions counselor and over five years working as an advocate for survivors of sexual assault. I worked with Dr. Philip Zimbardo on his Heroic Imagination Project, educating students, teachers, and counselors on developing a growth mindset.
