My Approach to Helping

My goal is to encourage people to reflect about themselves (their thoughts and their bodies), their experiences and their relationships using compassion, curiosity, and humor. My approach employs family systems, mindfulness, and interpersonal neurobiology. I am interested in building on people's strengths, and supporting them as they transform their reflections into different ways to navigate the world and their relationships.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, with a Masters in Social Work from Portland State University. I have worked with people in private practice, agency, hospitals, and shelter environments. Over the years, I have gained the most experience in issues related to pregnancy, post-partum, adoption, infertility, bereavement and cancer diagnosis and survivorship. However, I have also worked with individuals and couples experiencing life transitions, overwhelming workplace stress, trauma, and relationship issues.

Techniques I Use


  • EMDR External link

    I am certified in EMDR and have years of experience using EMDR with clients to treat PTSD and complex trauma.

  • Family Systems External link

    People that surrounded us during our childhood and youth influence our perceptions and relationships as do our early romantic relationships. I think of the current challenges a person faces within a framework of their past in order to help them consider different ways to be in the present.

Issues I Treat


  • Postpartum External link

    The post-partum period challenges people’s views of themselves, their careers, their relationships, and who they want to be as a parent. And all on very little sleep. I have received extensive training in pregnancy and postpartum mental health and worked in a hospital birthing center and NICU.

  • Pregnancy (Prenatal Mental Health) External link

    In my private practice and in my work at a hospital birth center, I have witnessed a wide range of mental health, relationship, and health related issues that people can experience during pregnancy. This awareness informs my work around pregnancy as does the importance of helping people create space and energy for the upcoming labor and delivery and the ensuing adjustment.

  • Women's Issues External link

    I work with women and couples experiencing issues with infertility, pregnancy, pregnancy loss, post-partum adjustment and menopause. These experiences can change fundamental aspects of identity. They are times of culturally informed and biological transitions and can be full of overwhelming challenges. They can also provide a unique motivation for shifting old perspectives.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    While we will all experience losses in our life, each person's story is unique. I provide context and connection to other's experiences, while providing space to each person as they determine their own meaning and direction after loss. My work has spanned supporting people through pregnancy loss, the loss of a child and the death of a life partner.
