My Ideal Client

Making an effort to seek help is a brave step - one that can bring healing, growth and change. I provide an affirming, supportive space for you to explore the issues that are important to you, reconnect with your values and inner direction, and challenge unhealthy behavior patterns or thoughts that are holding you back from living your full potential.

My Background and Approach

Originally from Hawaii, I moved to Portland in 2017. Since a young age I was aware that I wanted to be a helpful resource for others. I received my Master's Degree in Social Work from Hawaii Pacific University and I have experience providing counseling to a diverse range of clients. I specialize working with adults and teens dealing with various challenges including anxiety, depression, life transitions, trauma, relationship challenges, grief & loss, and stress management. I incorporate both physical and mental treatment modalities including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Interventions, mindfulness practices, somatic interventions and parts work.

My Values as a Therapist

Change and healing can happen at any phase in life, even when it feels impossible. I strive to create a safe, compassionate and nonjudgmental environment. I believe we are able to access our own authentic wisdom when we feel safe and heard by someone who honors all of who we are and I’m excited to share that space with you.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • EMDR External link

    When an overwhelming life event occurs, your brain can freeze in response. Rather than process and store the event in your long-term memory, the brain may leave the episode in its emotional region. This unprocessed, static memory can linger, triggering patterns of negative beliefs, feelings, and physical symptoms. EMDR is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that heals past wounds so you can be fully present in the life you want.

  • Holistic External link

    I blend elements from a variety of approaches involving the mind, body and spirit in order to deeply integrate the healing and change you desire. A holistic framework will help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself on all these levels, and create increased awareness and acceptance of your whole self, promoting balance and well-being

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    I integrate body-based processes and techniques to help you release nervous system stress, blocked emotions and stored traumas in your body.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    I utilize a cognitive behavioral framework to help you identify and challenge cognitive distortions and barriers getting in the way of reaching your goals.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Women's Issues External link

    Juggling a family, career, relationships, and societal expectations as a woman can be challenging. I help women who are looking to change the course of their relationships by breaking unhealthy patterns, setting boundaries, overcoming people pleasing and perfectionism, building self esteem, and embody the full version of themselves.

  • PTSD External link

    I use a trauma-informed, integrative approach to treating behavioral, physiological and emotional disturbances, including ​PTSD, flashbacks, depression, anxiety, panic attacks and dissociation. Some of the sources I draw from in my practice include: EMDR, Parts Work, Psycho-education and Attachment Repair.

  • Anxiety External link

    My work with clients involve exploring the underlying thoughts, feelings, and related experiences associated with anxiety as well as the body’s response to stress. I use evidence-based techniques to build skills and awareness around triggers and symptoms. We will work together to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, learn how to sooth yourself, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better ways to cope and problem-solve.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Nothing in life compares to the pain of loosing someone (or something) that was dear to your heart. These significant losses are never simple, nor singular, rather they involve a myriad of complex emotions that can feel consuming at times. I work with individuals at any point of their grief journey. Together, we will make space for your loss and put together a toolbox of techniques and skills to help you navigate these challenging times.
