My Approach

Being a counselor is a second career for me. And after more than 20 years in the corporate world, I am grateful to be able to use my skills, knowledge and learning to help others with their personal life and relationship issues. I support clients struggling with a wide variety of difficulties. My focus areas are Couples Counseling, Life Transitions - both planned and unexpected, and Personal Growth, which can be around career struggles, personal or sexual identity conflicts, or understanding family history and its impact on us. I am also able to provide services to those whose lives are impacted by addiction or chronic illness. As a counselor, I combine practical people skills with an intuitive sense of how people change and what prevents them from living the life they want. Together we will work to uncover those obstacles that may be holding you back.

My Background

I have a Master's Degree in Counseling from Portland State University, with a focus in Clinical Mental Health and Rehabilitation Counseling. Helping others has always been part of my work and approach to life. I believe in finding positive solutions to the many problems that individuals or couples experience in their relationships and everyday lives. My work is informed by many theories, including Emotion Focused, Existential-Humanistic and Jungian therapy. For couples, I have had advanced training in Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy and Dan Wile's Collaborative Couples work. My work is also informed by contemporary influences like Esther Perel and Pia Mellody. These approaches allow me to access what is most needed for your unique situation. I am also a Certified Facilitator for the Prepare-Enrich Premarital counseling program.
