Licensed Professional Counselor

My approach to counseling is holistic, client-centered and depth oriented, encouraging personal growth, transformation, and self-empowerment. I specialize in relationship to nourishment and the mind-body connection.

My Approach

My intention is to connect with you as a unique being, and to offer support and curiosity to the life experiences and challenges that bring you into therapy. Our work together may include the use of traditional talk therapy, interpersonal connection, present-moment experience, mindfulness, experiential and body-oriented approaches, studying thoughts and impulses, exploring dreams, spirituality and existential experience. In addition to counseling, my background in Nutrition and Massage Therapy provide me with knowledge and awareness of physical health challenges, body symptoms, and lifestyle concerns.

My Background

I graduated from Lewis and Clark college in Professional Mental Health and Addictions with a focus in Eating Disorders and Somatic Psychology, and I have a certification in the Treatment of Eating Disorders. I am trained in Hakomi, Attachment, and Re-creation of the Self through the M.E.T.A. Counseling Center (Mindful Experiential Therapy Approaches). This work is rooted in mindfulness and body-oriented approaches, and I completed a year long internship with this as an educational focus and approach to counseling. I have also studied with the Process Work Institute, which is based in Jungian dreaming process, body symptoms, shamanistic and spiritual exploration, and experiential approaches. I currently work part-time at the Integrative Trauma Treatment Center, and at the partial hospitalization level in Eating Disorders treatment. In addition to being a counselor, I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach, a Licensed Massage Therapist, and a Reiki II practitioner.
