My Ideal Client

I work with clients all across Oregon to help them heal from abusive relationships, toxic family dynamics, narcissistic parents, partners, bosses, and/or religious groups. I offer therapy focused on self-rebuilding, relationship struggles, developing healthy boundaries, and discovering your healthier way to move forward as your most authentic self. If you're motivated toward change and ready to put in the hard work to create a sustainable path of healing for yourself, we are a good fit.

My Approach to Helping

Life isn’t simple. It can be really challenging to navigate, especially on our own. Have you found yourself having trouble coping with the challenges you face? Have traumas, relationships, societal standards, and systems left you with mazes of wounds that are seemingly never-ending? Whether you are new to seeking therapy or are an old friend of the therapeutic process, I am here to help. I am committed to creating the opportunity for you to have a non-judgmental, trauma-informed, inclusive, and affirming space to discover how you will progress through it all. I work through a Client-Centered lens with Internal Family Systems, Attachment Models & weight inclusive perspectives. I believe each client has the innate ability to grow, transform, and heal in the therapeutic process. My work also includes DBT, CBT, Somatic/Mindfulness Therapies. Therapy is a collaborative process, so we will find out what works for you.

Techniques I Use


  • Attachment Theory External link

    The foundation in which we relate and develop bonds with others was taught to us in our earliest experiences. Working to understand the way we learned to engage in relationships leads to the opportunity to teach ourselves new ways of connecting with others. Offering freeing & mutually servings methods of connecting with others and yourself.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    Our thoughts are a direct core of who we are, how we feel, how we perceive, and how we engage with the world. When we spend time approaching our behaviors and emotions from the perspective of our thought lives so much healing/congruency can be experienced.

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    The brain, nervous system, emotions, and physical experiences are an integral part of our human experience. Somatic-based and focused therapeutic interventions can provide great insight and regulation to a variety of life's struggles; which can lead to an impactful recovery, growth, and healing for many folks.

  • Humanistic  External link

    ' is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried.'- Carl Rogers. I believe you are the expert on you.

Issues I Treat


  • Family Conflict External link
  • Self-Esteem External link
  • ADHD External link
  • Spirituality External link

    I have studied varying religions and spiritualties in my collegiate career. I believe spirituality and religion to be an integral part of how we choose to be in the world. Yet, it can be a challenging aspect to unite with our lives, especially in the face of spiritual or religious abuse. I work to facilitate the meeting of religion/spirituality and trauma/abuse. There is space for you here.

  • Chronic Pain or Illness External link

    Chronic pain and illnesses have a way of deeply rooting themselves into every element of our lives that is often misunderstood, dismissed, or even rejected by those who do not live with the symptoms. I am here to support you in your experience of living with chronic pain and illnesses. There is space for you here.
