I provide a safe, encouraging and non-judgmental therapeutic environment. My style is warm, collaborative and direct. Compassion and humor are vital ingredients for growth and wellness. My approach is integrative; drawing from strengths based, trauma-informed, relational, social justice and anti-oppression perspectives. I place great value on being able to deeply witness, understand and hold space for you in your moments of pain and uncertainty. Some life challenges have the capacity to derail, uproot, and halt us from harnessing our power to live the lives we desire. As a counselor, I place strong emphasis on developing insight & empathy to address and resolve problems, change patterns, improve relationships, heal trauma & navigate hardships. I hope to offer a transformative therapeutic experience that will enable you to realize your goals. Together we will cultivate the skills, insight and draw on your inner strength to benefit you years beyond our time together.

In 2007 I received my M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College. I have 22 years of social service and counseling experience serving adolescents, adults and families. My background is in trauma recovery, grief and loss and medical and health psychology. I have served older adults and families through adjustment, chronic illness, end of life issues and caregiving. My community counseling work encompassed a wide range of issues with an emphasis on navigating transitions, relationships and mood disorders. I value existential work, helping clients navigate transitions and deepen in their own process of identity development and self-actualization. I place great value on cultural competency, advocating for social justice and the eradiction of all forms inequality and oppression. I endeavor to deepen in my own personal & professional evolution striving to be congruent with the principles I impart.

Issues I Treat


  • Coronavirus/COVID-19 External link

    This is a time trauma, uncertainly and profound grief and hardship for our community, our country and the world. If you are fearful and navigating stabilty and economic hardship concerns, health concerns, fear, stress or anxiety for you or a loved one, you are not alone. I would love to support you. Presently I am offering telehealth therapy sessions.

  • Family Caregiving External link

    Caring for a loved one is tremendous act of love an can be a highly stressful and complicated experience. It's important to know that your own self-care is paramount to being an effective caregiver. I am experienced in working with caregivers and their loved ones who are coping with a chronic medical and or psychological impairment. Having access to resources, education and support is essential.

  • Self-Esteem External link

    Having a healthy sense of self is vital to feeling worthy and capable of manifesting the life you long for. We all experience wounds and hardships that serve to invalidate or diminish our sense of value. It is important that you understand the unique qualties that you possess and learn to move through the world holding your power, this is a process that can be reclaimed in our work together.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Grief exists in many forms from a loss of a dream or opportunity, personal power, a loved one, a health diagnosis or impairment. It is vital that you have a safe and supportive place to process feelings of anguish or sorrow and in time arrive at healing. Much of my clinical work has centered around loss and navigating transitions with a commitment to honor your experience with compassion.
