My Ideal Client

As a person with experience in Law Enforcement, I know finding a counselor with that type-specific cultural competence can be hard work. I also know it can be difficult to connect with someone who may not understand the ins and outs of the first responder professions (police, fire, medical, dispatch) and I am in training to help fill those needs. I am interested in working with first responders and their families.

My Background and Approach

I have worked as a police officer in the State of Oregon for 15 years, dedicated to service: both to the community and to my professional peers as Peer Support through EAP. Throughout my career, I have seen first-hand the need for mental health services for both the public and for first responder professionals which is why I have now chosen to dedicate myself to the mental health profession as well. My approach to counseling is similar to my approach to peer support: honest, straightforward, and compassionate interactive communication. I work in collaboration with my clients that builds on the strengths the client already possesses. I believe that change is inevitable, but that it is how we respond (rather than react) to the complexity and challenges of those changes that shape our resiliency and mental wellness. I am a student clinician working under the supervision of Tracy Sandor MA, LPC.

Why I Became a Therapist

This world can be unpredictable, confusing, and painful, and in order to get through it in a healthy way we have to embrace the challenges, confront unhealthy coping techniques, and grow and strengthen our emotional intelligence. I work in collaboration with my clients that builds on the strengths the client already possesses. I believe that change is inevitable, but that it is how we respond (rather than react) to the complexity and challenges of those changes that shape our resiliency and mental wellness. I have a relatively eclectic approach that includes a solution-focused and holistic application of cognitive-behavioral ideals.
