Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker/therapist and I'm skilled at helping individuals navigate an array of challenges by cultivating growth, deepening insight and awareness, building desired skills, and fostering meaningful relationships and connection.

My personal style is highly intuitive, dynamic, and personable. And my approach to therapy is rooted in mindfulness and strategies to build awareness and insight into one’s thoughts, feelings, actions, and personal experience to cultivate growth, self-acceptance, and a sense of agency or choice. With increased awareness you will be able to “slow down” and better understand what it is you are thinking, feeling, and experiencing in the moment so that you can make an informed decision about how you would like to respond. In our work together, I will teach you skills to help you relate to yourself and others in a way that is helpful, balanced and kind. I have successfully helped others to heal from past pain and loss and form new, healthy relationships based on trust, helped people find their voice and build a sense of self that feels authentic and whole, as well as overcome anxiety and all the "what ifs" that don't seem to end.
I am a licensed clinical social worker/therapist and earned my Master of Social Work degree from Portland State University. I incorporate Western psychology, neuroscience, and Eastern wisdom traditions in my work, and I have advanced training in the application of Buddhist psychology and Gestalt Therapy. That said, my approach is still very secular and really value and appreciate a skeptical mind because it's so important that we each find our own truth and approach that resonates. I am a founding member of a local sangha called the FUTUS (F you, Thank you) and our name honors the complexity of life and sense of both resistance and gratitude that can come with growth and change. I challenge myself daily to deepen my work and practice so that I can act with integrity and walk my talk. I love to foster that same growth in others and to help my clients to fully embrace themselves and own their power and brilliance.
