My Approach to Helping

For clients experiencing anxiety and depression, my goal is to help uncover areas of strength and employ those strengths to improve quality of life and relationships. Looking for patterns in our thoughts, behavior and our relationships gives us information on what works for us and what doesn’t. Practicing self compassion as we look through these sometimes painful past and current experiences leads to healing and confidence. Achieving a healthy self esteem is foundational in having the kind of relationships we are all craving. Mindfulness is a tool I employ often to help clients make connections with their thoughts and their behaviors and the world around them. I'm also trained in Brainspotting, a powerful tool that helps identify and then process and release core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and other challenging symptoms. I believe that we all are worthy of healing and enjoying healthy relationships with themselves and others!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I received a BA in Psychology at the University of Tulsa in 2002, followed by a Masters in Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary in 2008. I am currently a registered intern with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists. Outside of my work, you can find me reading at least three books at the same time, making art and playing with my family and friends. As I encourage my clients to live wholeheartedly, I engage with what I believe in and am always learning more and practicing the arts of self compassion and growth.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Mindfulness-based External link

    Practicing knowing ourselves and being present with what we are encountering gives us incredible insight into who we are any why we function the way we do. By becoming mindful of who we are and what we are experiencing, we can gain more understanding of the power we have in our lives.

  • Family Systems External link

    We often have long standing patterns in our ways of relating to others. By looking at the roles we have assumed in our lives and the roles of those around us, we can better understand ourselves and our relationships.

  • Narrative  External link
