My Ideal Client

Welcome! You’ve taken the first step toward personal growth, and that takes a lot of courage. The next steps don’t have to be quite so difficult! I can help you process and learn from the challenges you’ve faced in the past, support you during any changes you may be going through now, and suggest ways you can start to maximize your potential and maintain your overall well-being going forward. Whether you are looking for some or all of the above, I am looking forward to working with you!

My Background and Approach

My approach to helping is cognitive-behavioral, meaning that I am listening for negative thoughts that we can challenge and reframe more positively (cognitive), as well as things that you can do (behavioral) to feel less anxious and more hopeful, and to take good care of yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically. I may also suggest many ideas from dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), which is a kind of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) that focuses on mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. I began practicing in 2015 at an intensive outpatient center, and completed my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2016. In the state of Oregon, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and Approved Supervisor Candidate, and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I am currently in-network with PacificSource, Providence, and Regence/BCBS of Oregon health plans.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that regardless of what we have done or been through in the past, we can all live the life we want, both now and in the future. I can help you learn and grow from your experiences, and provide the safety and comfort in our sessions together that give you the confidence to follow through on the changes you want to make. In my free time, I love coloring, creative journaling, and reading books. I have lived in Oregon since 2000, and I currently live with my husband and our two cats.

Issues I Treat


  • Anxiety External link

    People with anxiety may feel nervous or “on edge,” worry a lot, and avoid doing things that make their anxiety worse. They may have physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, upset stomach, and sweating or shaking. Many of these also often cause difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. I help people learn coping skills and other lifestyle habits that help them feel less anxious.

  • Adjustment Disorder External link

    This is usually a short-term response to a life change or stressor, and can take the form of anxiety, depression, or both. People with depression often feel sad or hopeless, not interested in doing things or not enjoying things they used to enjoy, and may even have thoughts of not wanting to wake up or wanting all of their problems to go away. When these thoughts become more persistent, it is definitely time to get help.

  • Drug Dependence / Abuse / Addiction External link

    People can become addicted to anything, not just drugs or alcohol. Someone may need help with their over-use or abuse of a substance or activity if it takes up so much of their time that they are neglecting, or are unable to fulfill, their other responsibilities. Examples of this might be sometimes calling out sick to work because of feeling “hungover” from the night before, or someone who plays video games for so many hours straight that they are not eating, sleeping, or using the bathroom.

  • Early Recovery External link

    Recovery is not just about getting sober or abstaining from addictive substances and activities, it is about establishing, and then maintaining, an overall healthy lifestyle, and learning how to handle triggers and setbacks. You can also be in recovery from an eating disorder, mental health issues, or a mental health crisis. I provide support to people in all of these types of recovery, as well as to people who are just beginning wanting to change, or who have had a recent relapse.

  • Eating Disorder External link

    Disordered eating is not just anorexia or bulimia. It can also look like skipping meals during the day and overeating in the evening, snacking constantly even when you’re not hungry, or eating just because you feel a strong emotion or want to change or avoid the way you’re feeling. You might also feel guilty, ashamed, frustrated, or disappointed after eating. If any of these sound familiar, you can benefit from counseling that helps you develop and practice a healthier relationship with food.
