My Ideal Client

Deciding to engage in therapy or finding a new therapist can be a daunting experience. I value the courage it takes to embark on that task. I have found that the "best fit" client for me is someone who appreciates humor, values honesty and is motivated to engage in the therapeutic process.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in working from a relational foundation informed by attachment theory while incorporating elements of Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal theory and Interpersonal Neurobiology. I believe my clients would describe me as animated, engaged, direct, curious, humorous, and down-to-earth in session. I value collaboration and anti-oppressive practices in my approach to therapy. I am passionate about working with adolescents, adults, and parents wanting to support their children more effectively.

My Values as a Therapist

Prior to getting my graduate degree in Social Work, I worked in a variety of social service settings including in Juvenile Justice, a Women’s Shelter, and an Arts focused nonprofit working with youth in foster care and those experiencing houselessness in New York City and in Los Angeles, CA. I then moved to Oregon and completed my MSW degree at Portland State University in 2013 and since then have worked in many different levels of care- from inpatient hospitalization, day treatment, to finally, outpatient care.
