My Approach

Knowing what makes you tick lays the groundwork to help you achieve your authentic life. Within each person there is passion. Failing to identify that passion and use it denies a key part of who you are. It impacts relationships, partner choices, and how you spend your time. Before you can understand someone else, you must know who you are and what you need. Whether it is learning to improve relationships, increase self understanding, clarify your value system, or put your life into perspective, you have the power to take charge of the quality of your relationships, identify your goals and achieve them, and break the cycle to stop repeating the same mistakes of the past. I can help you get there. I will hear you, relate to the challenges you face, and will help you move past your obstacles so that you can live the life you are meant to live. My objective in working with you is to help you identify what keeps you stuck in your personal relationships with yourself and others.

My Background

After being a special educator in the public school system for 10 years, the desire to engage on a deeper level with families drove me to get a Masters degree in Counseling with a marriage and family therapist specialization at Portland State University. I am particularly interested in working with individuals, couples and families and believe that it is our family of origin and early attachment that lays the foundation for how well we are able to navigate our relationships.
