My Approach

I draw on several important modalities in the work we do together. I have extensive experience utilizing cognitive behavioral techniques, which can help formulate clear goals, and steps to goal achievement. My foundational training employed psychodynamic concepts, which aids in a deeper understanding of what may be causing repeated distress and challenging patterns of behavior. I utilize Emotionally-Focused Therapy when working with couples. I also use art therapy for clients that may have not achieved all they would have hoped for with talk therapy. As well, for clients that are more visually oriented, art therapy can sometimes access subconscious material more quickly.

My Background

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC), as well as a registered, board certified art therapist (ATR-BC). I have a master's degree in counseling and art therapy from Marylhurst University. I have many years of professional experience working in community mental health agencies. My clientele included children, adolescents, adults and families. I have completed two levels of training in Emotionally-Focused Therapy for couples. I offer therapy for adolescents, adults and couples, focusing on depression, anxiety, faulty communication patterns. grief, loss, infertility issues and transitions,
