My Approach

Finding the right therapist can sometimes feel overwhelming. It’s no secret that how well you connect with your counselor is essential to flourishing in therapy, and you have a right to choose what works for you. Therefore, I offer the first session free, so that you can decide if my approach best suits your needs. In session, I will create a safe atmosphere where you can learn skills to deal with life's obstacles, explore your concerns so you can begin to resolve them, and gain a deeper understanding of yourself and where you are at in life. My practice emerges from a trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, relational lens of empowerment. My therapeutic style involves walking alongside you on your brave and adventurous path toward rediscovery. I hope to facilitate your process through open, supportive, and genuine dialogue.

My Background

I identify as a Black and Native and am an enrolled member of the Umatilla Indian Reservation here in Oregon. I have experience working with Native populations through traditional cultural practices living on the reservation as well as providing therapy at the Native American Rehabilitation Association (NARA). Before obtaining my master's in Counseling Psychology, I gained over 10 years of experience working within the realms of social justice, student leadership, and diversity development. After graduating, I gained additional training in DBT (couples and individual), interpersonal neurobiology, trauma-informed practices, relationship therapy, and therapy targeting therapy targeting BIPOC. I welcome alternative relationship structures, BIPOC, and QPOC.
