My Ideal Client

You've been told you're "too sensitive" or "too emotional." You feel like you can't trust yourself to make decisions, because you always "screw it up" and your mind is constantly going, replaying memories or rehearsing for the future. You find yourself in similar unfulfilling relationship patterns that leave you questioning your worth and loveability. You lose yourself in relationships, putting others' needs before your own. You're questioning if it can ever really be different.

How I Can Help You

I am passionate about helping people become the best versions of themselves, whether that is individually, or within the context of relationships. I provide a safe, supportive, and healing therapeutic space for folks who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, life transitions, feelings of overwhelm, interpersonal struggles, or grief and loss. During our time together, you can develop a greater understanding of yourself and your experiences. You can grow deeper and more fulfilling relationships. You can build healthy habits and thought patterns and become more grounded and present in everyday life. You can learn to listen to your inner voice and begin to let go of guilt, anger, and shame, allowing you to live more authentically and experience more wholeness even in life's challenges.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I fully believe that being seen, heard, and witnessed nonjudgmentally by another human is one of the most healing experiences we can have. Being that witness for others is a gift that I am grateful for every day. I truly believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship and my hope is to make therapy a more accessible, less stigmatized practice in everyday life. I’m a nationally certified counselor and a licensed professional mental health counselor - intern. I receive supervision from Elizabeth Trautwein, LPC. I am licensed in both Oregon and Washington. I earned my master's in mental health counseling with a specialization in addictions from Lewis and Clark College and I have my B.A. in Psychology from Butler University (Go Dawgs!). I am also a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance. Aside from being a therapist… I am also an avid hiker, a hobby photographer, a climber, a cat mom, a believer in small acts of kindness, and a lifelong learner.

Techniques I Use


  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) External link

    We are all made up of different parts that contain valuable qualities and we all have an inner Self that knows how to heal. Together, we can get to know these different parts, hear their stories, and release their burdens all while establishing more trust in the Self allowing you to feel more integrated and whole. I have completed my Level 1 IFS Training through the IFS Instutitute.

  • Humanistic  External link

    We are all connected through our shared experience of being human. Getting to know ourselves is one of the most empowering and healing things we can do. I fully believe that being seen, heard, and witnessed nonjudgmentally by another human is one of the most healing experiences we can have.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    When we suppress or numb our emotions we don't get to pick and choose the ones we want to feel, they all get suppressed. Emotions are information and they are often trying to tell us important things. Recognizing and sitting with our emotions is a practice that we can get better at; allowing us to move deeper into our understanding of ourselves and others.

  • EMDR External link

    Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of therapy that utilizes bilateral stimulation (BLS) usually in the form of eye movements, tapping, or auditory tones in order to accelerate the brain’s capacity to process and heal a troubling memory, thought, feeling, or phobia. BLS stimulates the same eye movements which occur during Rapid Eye Movement (REM) or dream sleep. BLS causes two parts of the brain to work in conjunction in order to reintegrate a memory.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    Learn to recognize distortions in thinking that are creating problems, and reevaluate them in light of reality. Gain a better understanding of the behavior and motivation of others. Use problem-solving skills to cope with difficult situations. Learn to develop a greater sense of confidence in your own abilities.

Issues I Treat


  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety can be a racing heart, sweaty palms, and a general sense of tension in our bodies or it can be intrusive thoughts, worry, and an overall sense of dread. However anxiety shows up, together, we can work at challenging anxious thoughts, improving insight and awareness, and processing experiences to help you identify coping strategies that work best for you.

  • Codependency External link

    When you give so much of yourself to others, it can feel like you lose parts of yourself in the process You might find it difficult to set boundaries or voice your true inner feelings. Together, you can learn to recognize and honor your inner voice, trust your intuition, and integrate the different parts of yourself enabling you to live life more fully and authentic to who you are.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    Relationships are part of the foundation that make-up the human experience. They bring some of the greatest joys and the greatest pains to life. Together we can work on improving your relationship with yourself and those around you through processing past and present experiences, clarifying wants, needs, and desires, and improving communication strategies.

  • Personal Growth External link

    I believe that getting to know ourselves is one of the most empowering things we can do. Understanding our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and why we do the things that we do provides a sense of knowing ourselves that can elicit feelings of contentment, confidence, and fulfillment.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Loss of any kind is difficult to cope with. Grief is a complicated process and can show up in many different ways across a lifetime. It is common to feel an external pressure to move on, and when you can't, it feels like something is wrong with you. Together, we will get to know your grief. I will honor your process, and provide space for you to be with your feelings and experiences.
