My Ideal Client

I enjoy working with diverse populations and providing a safe place for all. I am trauma-informed and come from a strengths-based approach, using a variety of modalities including Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and solution-focused therapy. I am honored to work with individuals who trust me with their stories and enjoy walking alongside my clients as they go through the therapeutic process.

My Background

I graduated with my master’s degree in social work in 2014 from the University of Kansas then went on to earn my clinical licensure. I also hold a graduate certificate from Portland State University in Infant/Toddler Mental Health. I am passionate about helping others and have several years of experience working with children, adolescents, families, and the perinatal population. My experiences include working in community mental health, short-term crisis stabilization, group practice, and the healthcare setting. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and after a brief stint in Kansas, moved back to Oregon in 2017. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time in nature with my partner, live music, video games, camping, and spending time with family and friends. I also have an amazing daughter and daughter-in-law. I am a huge animal lover and have a rescue French Bulldog named Poppy and grumpy rescue cat named Max!
