My Approach

I work in partnership with people to facilitate positive change. My approach emphasizes acceptance, finding balance, exploring values, and developing new skills to gain freedom from limiting patterns. Each person I work with is unique and therapy is specially tailored to meet your individual needs and concerns. I believe people have a great capacity to grow and heal and make their lives satisfying and fulfilling.

My Background

I have worked in a variety of different fields in my early work life, and was drawn to counseling because of the profound and lasting positive changes that the counseling process can offer to people. I received my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College, and have bachelor of science degrees in Chemistry and Computer Science. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon. I have experience and training using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), EMDR and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy. I am a certified EMDR provider and also a Certified Gambling Addiction Therapist in Oregon. I bring concepts from mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, and neuroscience into my practice. I use an integrated approach to therapy, tailored to meet the unique needs of every client. I enjoy working with clients from many different backgrounds and have worked in managed care, community mental health, and private practice.
