My Approach

In my practice, Radical Realness Therapy, I help clients to find their own voice and build more genuine relationships. Together, we work to understand what factors are currently causing distress and create a workable path towards change. I strive to create an environment of warmth and authenticity, and bring my own sense of compassion, humor, and non-judgmental curiosity into the therapeutic relationship. I work with women, men, trans, genderqueer, and non-binary adults in individual and couple therapy. I am LGBTQ Affirming, and experienced & knowledgeable in working with non-monogamous clients. I believe in the value of culturally competent practice that is accepting of folks from all backgrounds.

My Background

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Modern Literature from University of California, Santa Cruz (2003), a Master of Science in Library and Information Science from Dominican University (2005), and a Master of Science in Marriage & Family Therapy from The Family Institute at Northwestern University (2012). After completing my graduate training, I worked as a Staff Therapist on the Mindfulness & Behavioral Therapies Team at The Family Institute at Northwestern University, and later moved into private practice in Chicago before relocating to Portland, Oregon. I have additional clinical training in mindfulness-based therapies including Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Yoga-Informed Psychotherapy. I am in the process of completing Full Training in Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), and incorporate somatic and trauma-sensitive healing into my practice.
