My Approach

I provide individuals, families, couples and teens the opportunity to safely and confidently explore your life experiences and help you feel whole and well. My therapy practice offers an opportunity to become accepting and empowered about your life experience, your behavior and choices. I offer thoughtful, collaborative, compassionate, client-centered therapy. Part of my practice includes calling attention to how the body is responding to narrative, discussion, emotion and using skills of breathwork and sometimes physical movement to allow the body to feel safe in the therapy process. By being in relationship with the body, one can learn to have a comprehensive understanding of present time safety and develop opportunities to relax, calm down the mind and shift emotions. In the presence of a skilled therapist, these tools can be used to heal and feel in control.

My Background

I am dedicated to offering an ethical and compassionate trauma-informed, somatic-integrated, honest, thoughtful and unconditional counseling experience. I have practiced counseling in private practice, mental health agency setting, partial hospital treatment program, and gambling addictions services since 2005. Focus on family/relationship dynamics, attachment, human development, client-centered, trauma-informed therapy rooted in social justice. I believe that a mindful approach to any therapeutic technique or theory can offer healing results and improve your mood, health, ambition and relationships. In addition to my counseling credentials, I completed 500-hr Yoga training and have taught yoga and meditation since 2003. I offer private, couples and small group yoga when therapeutically appropriate. Yoga is one of several types of mindfulness-based tools I offer in my practice. I also provide Clinical Supervision to counselor interns in Oregon and Washington.
