My Approach

I view people in a holistic manner, taking into account their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs; tailoring my approach to the needs of each individual I meet with. We work together to create a plan in how specifically you can reach the goals you desire. This can happen by learning new skills, gaining insights into how certain behaviors got started, looking at family background patterns, increasing resources in your life, and discovering strengths and tools you are already using! Currently, I am only offering video or phone appointments.

My Background

I received my Masters in Counseling from George Fox University in 2010. After working in the community mental health setting, I have attained both my Oregon and Washington counseling license. I have received a two year training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, 2 level training in Gottman method for couple's counseling, and have experience working with diverse populations in a variety of mental health settings. The issues I address include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, marital and premarital issues, impulse control difficulties,stress management, and offer spiritual growth mentoring. I have experience meeting with individuals, couples and families.
