My style is relational, direct, supportive, engaging and kind. Therapy is largely inspired and informed by my training in Emotion Focused Therapy for Individuals and Couples, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Existential-Humanism, Family Systems Theories, Mindfulness and Experiential Interventions, Solution-Focused and the Gottman Method. I am dedicated to helping couples and families correct their courses using love, limits and guidance. My role is to facilitate a space for compassionate communication where each person can learn to identify needs, become comfortable expressing feelings and engage in healthy dialogue to accomplish harmonious relationships.

I completed my Masters (M.S.) degree with honors in Marriage, Couples and Family Counseling Psychology from Portland State University, a graduate program accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP). I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree summa cum laude in Psychology at Portland State University, Oregon in 2008. I also have extensive experience working with individuals and couples as a certified life coach, childbirth educator and birth doula for many years prior.

Techniques I Use


  • Couples Counseling External link

    Healthy relationships take work and most couples face challenges at some point during their relationship. When those challenges surface, having the support of a skilled counselor can make a huge difference. Investing in your relationship through couples counseling will pay off for years to come!

  • Gottman Method External link

    Gottman Method utilizes years of research to help couples go from being 'disasters' in there relationship to becoming 'masters.' When couples work together through this method to change their negative patterns they will see real positive results.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    Emotion must be evoked, experienced, validated, respected and accepted in order to move forward. People get stuck when their emotions have been denied, repressed, depressed, dismissed or invalidated. EFT works with clients difficult and sometimes painful emotions to allow the necessary healing and integration to occur.

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    Individual counseling sessions provide a safe place for people to resolve inner conflicts, process life experiences, heal from traumas and examine personal thoughts and goals. I collaborate with each individual to create a unique, custom desiged plan to having greater peace of mind, better relationships and a more enriching life. Together we will work toward getting you to a better place.

  • Spirituality External link

    Discovering and emerging in your spirituality is a highly personalized journey. My accepting guidance and skilled can assist you in defining and living your personal truth. My goal is to honor your experience and offer a sounding board of unconditional openness for the safe expression of your spirituality.

  • Family Conflict External link

    All families experience transitions and sometimes confront stressful difficulties that seem impossible to overcome. However, families are incredibly resilient and have the capacity to reach deep into their resources and change their negative circumstances, especially with the assistance and support of a skilled counselor. When problems arise, I am dedicated to helping families find their balance.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I work with couples at all stages to facilitate secure, lasting bonds and find creative solutions for deeper and more fulfilling relationships. We will reinforce any preexisting positive bonds, identifying negative patterns in the relationships, establishing realistic ways to solve problems, expanding emotional awareness, and finding new ways to increase security, closeness and connection.
